Marc Stiles of The Puget Sound Business Journal covered the announcement in his article, “40-story condo tower coming to Seattle’s new ‘vertical village.’” As Stiles describes, “The 40-story project at 1200 Howell St. is called NEXUS. It would be the first downtown Seattle condo high-rise to start construction since 2012, when work began on the two-tower Insignia development in Belltown.” Stiles likewise looks to Dean Jones, who “said that Nexus will anchor ‘an emerging vertical village’ northeast of downtown, where more than two dozen residential, hotel and office high-rises are planned.”

Stiles also highlighted the origin of the building’s name as he writes that “Seattle architecture firm Weber Thompson designed Nexus, which is named for the building’s interconnecting cubes and the project’s location between the South Lake Union, downtown and Capitol Hill neighborhoods.”
