Washington Mutual Tower

When I snapped this picture of the Washington Mutual Tower in Seattle, back in 2003, I could not foresee the fiscal train wreck that was to occur, nor did anyone working in this tower. I look at this shot now, and I can only hear the words of Gordon Gecko: Greed is good. Good for a few in this tower, disastrous for everyone else.

 

Despite that, the Washington Mutual Tower (Now Chase) is one of my favorite skyscrapers in Seattle, and of all time. The 55 story Skyscraper, Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, opened in 1988.
