BlogDowntown reports, and an email from a reader also confirms, that plans are on the drawing board for two large towers to be built in Downtown near the corner of Grand & Olympic. The towers appear to be massive (50 and 60 stories), and are described on builder Robertson Partners' web site as being "a mixed-use building with residential condos, a five story hotel, Class A office space and retail space." We can't tell if there are two separate buildings or one building with two towers. C-R-A-Z-Y.
