What a colossal disappointment. Amazon could have transformed the Seattle skyline. Instead, it built a few short, lame boxes.

The facades look ridiculous too.

It could have been way better but is still a nice addition... better/taller buildings are certainly down the line in Seattle though so that's good.

I usually hate random cladding, but this is turning out pretty well. It's far better than that failure of a building Arizona (SEA29).

I like the reflections these towers will give from their wings and baffles. Very cool effect.


Sidewalk and plaza details




Perforated baffles


I like these aluminum wings




South face has a completely different cladding

Amazon to begin move into new Seattle campus next week, with rooftop dog park and indoor basketball court



Quote:
December 4, 2015

After years of planning, Amazon will finally begin moving into its new campus near downtown next week.

Construction on the entire project — which will consist of 4 million square feet of office space across three towers, a large meeting center and epic-looking glass spheres — still isn’t complete. For now, just two buildings are ready for move-in, a company spokesman tells GeekWire.

The first is a 36-story office tower called Doppler, named after the internal codename for the Amazon Echo when it was under development. Doppler will look like a pretty standard office space, except with a rooftop dog park on the 17th floor.

This is one of three towers that will be warmed through Amazon’s ambitious plan to pump in waste heat from a data center across the street. The Amazon spokesman tells GeekWire that the system is up and running, and so far hasn’t had any issues.

The other facility coming online next week is simply called the Meeting Center — because it’s exactly that. It’s a shorter building that’s connected to Doppler by a covered awning and will house the company’s largest meeting space. It comes complete with fold-up stadium seating and a stage for corporate events. When the seats are retracted, basketball hoops fold down and the room’s cement floors become a full sized basketball court.

[...]

Also, I like the window design. It really looks modern and will certainly stand out on the Seattle skyline.
