Downtown Rooftops

250px-Columbia_center_from_smith_towerThe Columbia Center in downtown Seattle just added 90 degrees to their observation deck, now providing a complete, 360 degree panorama. According to the Fifth Avenue Seattle blog, this deck is open daily to the public, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and admission is $12.50 for adults.

This of course is our highest perch in Seattle since the Columbia Tower is the tallest building in the state of Washington (and the second tallest building on the west coast). At 932 feet tall, it towers over the Space Needle by over three hundred feet. Chicago Title and Escrow where I have been often for closings over the years, is located on the 23rd floor, and though it’s not the top, their views are still pretty stupendous.

It’s fun to get up high when one is downtown. I found myself on the downtown rooftops three times this week-end:

Thursday night at Russell Investments Center:

Friday night at Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails:

And last night, Saturday, at Maximilien in the Market:

No doubt about it, Seattle is spectacular, especially from up on high.
