Facts

  • The tower occupies only 25% of its site at ground level, with a normal-sized tower balanced on an extremely narrow pedestal.
  • Referred to as "the wine glass" by locals.
  • On this site stood the White-Henry-Stuart Building from 1907 to 1976; razed to make way for this tower.
  • Described by various sources as a 42-story building or a 40-story building, but it is neither. The tower has 29 typical floors sitting on top of an 11-story pedestal; when including the ground floor (every building must have one) and the fully enclosed mechanical floor, Rainier Tower has a total of 31 floors.
