Columbia Center

Travel to Seattle is such a different experience, as it involves an exploration of the city's unique cultural and historical heritage, as well as its constant embodiment of the American dream. One such embodiment of the American dream is the city's Columbia Center in Seattle, Washington. As the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle, as well as the tallest in the country's Pacific Northwest, the Columbia Center is living proof to America's heights of achievement.

In fact, the Columbia Center is such an important landmark that many Seattle travel information never fail to mention this skyscraper. Standing at about 937 feet (285 meters), the Columbia Center was built in 1982 and was finished in 1985.

At 76 floors, the Columbia Center features houses many offices and commercial establishments. The building also hosts an observation deck, as well as the Columbia Tower Club, which contains a restaurant, bar, and library, and spaces for corporate functions. Its underground structures connect to the Seattle Municipal Tower and the nearby Bank of America.

Originally named as the Columbia Center, it was changed to Columbia Seafirst Center. When the Bank of America took over from Seafirst in 1983, it was again renamed as the Bank of America Tower. Eventually, the building was renamed back into the Columbia Center in 2005.

A special attraction of the Columbia Center is its annual hosting of the world's largest firefighter competition. More than a thousand firefighters trek the stairs of this skyscraper wearing their full gear. These firefighters compete in the annual meet in order to benefit the local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
