A planned Ritz-Carlton hotel for Block 216 will have approximately 250 rooms in addition to 138 condominiums. The hotel will be Ritz-Carlton's first in the Pacific Northwest. The full-block building will be a 35-story tower with a mix of office, hotel and residential uses. The proposed height is 460 feet.

After the ceremonial groundbreaking on July 12, bulldozers moved in. Walter Bowen's BPM Real Estate Group's building will feature ground floor retail, a food court, offices, a Ritz-Carlton five-star hotel and condominiums with access to the hotel's facilities such as the spa and the restaurant chefs when it opens in late 2022. Ritz-Carlton is new to the Pacific Northwest, as is the affiliate of Mosaic Real Estate Investors of Los Angeles which provided the loan. Bowen of BPM Real Estate Group announced a $460 million construction loan for the project at 900 S.W. Washington St. in early July.
