Building History

Howard S. Wright (1927-1996), whose construction company built the Sheraton Hotel and Towers, also was the largest single shareholder in the development. The Sheraton Tower was financed by a partnership made up of developer Jerome Anches, architect John Graham, Jr., (1908-1991) and contractor Wright. The trio's development firm was known as "Seventh Avenue Associates." (see "Exec for Sheraton," Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 02/27/1980, p. B5.) Seventh Avenue Associates recruited a hotel executive, Frank Finneran (born c. 1944), who had worked previously for the Olympic and Washington Plaza (later the Westin) Hotels, to be its senior officer.

Graham's firm, John Graham and Company designed the Modernist highrise.

Another 415-room, 25-story tower was being built by the Sheraton Seattle in 2007;
