888 Tower, also referred to as 888 Second Avenue, is a proposed 888-foot-tall (271 m) skyscraper in Downtown Seattle. It would be mixed-use, consisting of retail space on the ground floor, and offices and condominiums on higher floors; the tower would occupy the full city block between 2nd and 3rd Avenues and Columbia and Marion streets. When completed, it would become the second-tallest building in Seattle and the fifth-tallest on the West Coast of the United States.

In 2013, developer Urban Visions filed preliminary permits for a 77-story, 1,200-foot-tall (370 m) supertall skyscraper that would have eclipsed the Columbia Center as the tallest building in Seattle. A competition was held in 2014 to select a design for the supertall tower, resulting in Urban Visions favoring NBBJ's 60-story proposal over a 77-story proposal from Gensler. The NBBJ proposal features a 65-foot-wide (20 m) atrium in the middle of the tower that functions like a skylight; the 60-story tower also incorporates floor layouts that allow for 10 to 15 more people per floor despite the loss of a central core, allowing for the height to be reduced.
