The University of Washington, which owns four blocks of downtown real estate known as the Metropolitan Tract, will regain full control of the land when a long-term lease expires in 2014. Next month, it will select a plan to redevelop Rainier Square, shown here, most likely for an office tower, plus possibly apartments or a hotel. The site is bounded by University and Union streets and Fourth and Fifth avenues.
