37-story tower part of Touchstone's new plans for Boren site
By JOURNAL STAFF

Touchstone Corp. is working on another project and it's a big one: a 37-story, 372-unit residential tower and an adjacent 11-story 300,000-square-foot office building in the Denny Triangle.

Permit records show 5,000 square feet of retail and underground parking for 600 cars also are planned.

The site is at 1812 Boren Ave., just across the street from where Touchstone is building a complex called Hill7: an 11-story, 300,000-square-foot office tower and a 14-story hotel.

A Goodyear auto service business has been on the site for years.

An early design guidance meeting is tentatively scheduled for 5:30 p.m. April 1 at Seattle City Hall.

Representatives from Touchstone did not return a phone call requesting comment.

ZGF Architects is designing the project.

The DJC reported in January that Touchstone still has an option to buy the 28,000-square-foot Goodyear site at the southeast corner of Stewart and Boren. The company also controls a Diamond Parking Service lot just south of the Goodyear building.

Touchstone has been a big player in the Denny Triangle for years. In 2004 it built an 11-story life sciences building at Ninth and Stewart that was sold two years later to Seattle Children's for $108.9 million. In 2009, Touchstone finished West 8th, a 28-story tower at Eighth and Virginia, that houses Amazon.com offices. Touchstone sold that building for $279 million in 2012.

The Denny Triangle is a hot spot today, with numerous apartment complexes and office buildings in the works — including Amazon's new 3.3 million-square-foot headquarters. Stewart Street in particular has gotten a lot of attention from developers:

• Trammell Crow Co. has proposed a 21-story office building with 355,800 square feet at 1007 Stewart St., half a block from Hill7.

• R.C. Hedreen Co. plans a 40-story convention hotel with 154 units of low-income housing at 807 Stewart St., two blocks west of Trammell Crow's project.

• Half a block east of Touchstone's Goodyear site, GIS International Group is restarting a hotel and condo tower it shelved in 2011.

ANOTHER 400'+ residential tower for the Denny Triangle. Wont be too long before DT is more densely populated than Belltown.

3. Across the street. The huge Alliance Realty apt/preservation project. Moving along quickly.







4. 11th Ave and E Union. Small apt building with retail. This one has been dragging on forever.





5. Pine and 11th Ave. Wolff apt. project. Great design!

4. Neighbor will become a 5 story co-housing.



5. Another small apt. building on 12th Ave between E. Howell and E. Olive. Completed.





6. 13th and E Pine st. "Collins on Pine". Great building.

3. Mercedes project site. Saw it today and there's considerable progress; buildings, sans some of the walls, should be gone sometime next week.







4. Temporary Bauhaus is now open (former Capitol Club on E. Pine)





5. 320 E. Pine St. is now fina-freakin-ly done. I really like the blue, especially when you come up E. Pine from Downtown, but the metal siding detracts from the nice "cubature" of the building. Overall, it is of course a big improvement.











6. Former Bauhaus project getting ready (it's the same construction company as 320 E Pine across and the B&O project).

1. Former B&O on E. Olive and Belmont. Pretty big corner retail space.









2. 418 Bellevue Ave. Very nice infill.









3. Belmont Ave and Republican St. Also nice looking project (quality materials ); will look even better when they install the balconies.











4. Republican and Boylston. Affordable housing for mental health residents. This also has a nice design - guess we'll find out soon enough.



5. Harvard and E Thomas. Five stories of housing on top of office and retail as far as I remember. Nice height, footprint and presence; hope the materials are good as well. The 2-story former motel (kitty-corner) will get a very similar building.









6. Harvard Ave behind Dicks.



7. Bonus shot of 815 Pine from 13th Ave and E Pike.

progress on Cap Hill

A new 20-story, 200-unit, 400-bed dormitory appears to have broken ground for Cornish College of the Arts this week in the Denny Triangle district, near the Amazon tower projects. Cornish students currently live in a couple old motels on property Amazon has under contract.

A 12-story, 130-unit apartment also just started a week ago on Western Ave a few blocks north of the Pike Place Market.

Completions have been fast and furious lately in greater Downtown. But we're still comfortably above 6,000 (counting 6,300 off the top of my head) housing units underway in a slighly gerrymandered 2,500 acres or so, counting anything that's at least shoring an old facade or something like that.

PS, the parking ratios are 0.4 for 12th Ave, 0.51 for Western, and 0.045 (or 0.0225) for Cornish. That assumes zero for retail.

If you hypothetically did a 1.0 parking ratio for each, two would be possible but significantly more expensive, and Cornish would be dramatically more expensive, particularly given its site under 1/4 acre.

Also the 2,500 acre area is easily over 11,000 units broken ground since late 2010 with the new additions.

It's better looking than I had expected. Plus, it's another surface parking lot gone. They plan to start work in Feb, according to DJC.
Heres a reminder of the design for the Cornish dorm building mhays referenced above.

Onni plans nearly 2,000 units for Seattle Times blocks
By JOURNAL STAFF

Onni Group wants to build four towers, with 1,950 residential units over a 44,000-square-foot retail podium.

Onni Group of Vancouver B.C. wants to build nearly 2,000 residential units and 44,000 square feet of retail space feet on two South Lake Union blocks it bought from The Seattle Times, according to plans filed with the city.

Plans call for four towers on the two blocks bounded by Thomas Street, Denny Way, Boren and Fairview. The Denny/Fairview block will have two 40-story towers with 1,085 units, and the northern block along Thomas will have two 24-story towers with 865 units. The towers will sit on a ground-floor retail podium with 44,000 square of space, and there will be approximately 1,900 underground parking spaces.

Project documents don't say whether the units will be apartments or condos, and Onni representatives did not return phone calls requesting comment.

The former Times' headquarters is a city historic landmark and will be preserved. Onni plans to turn John Street, which is in between the two blocks of residential towers, into a pedestrian plaza and park. There will be a 33,000-square-foot amenity space along Denny Way. Both blocks will have mid-block pedestrian walkways.

An early design guidance meeting is tentatively set for 6:30 p.m., May 7 at Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W.

Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc. of Vancouver is designing the project, and Eckford Tyacke + Associates Landscape Architecture is the landscape architect.

The blocks are across from Amazon.com's headquarters and close to the company's future 3.3 million-square-foot expansion in the Denny Triangle. They total 5 acres and are part of a recent rezone of South Lake Union. The Denny/Fairview block is zoned for residential development up to 400 feet and commercial development up to 240 feet. The other block is zoned for housing to 240 feet and commercial to 160.

With this project, Onni will become one of the biggest developers in South Lake Union. Onni's towers total 1,950 units, and according to data provided by Dupre + Scott Apartment Advisors, developers are planning to open an additional 2,647 units between now and the end of 2017.

Onni Executive Vice President Chris Evans told the DJC last year the project gives Onni an “opportunity to be part of a changing neighborhood.”

The firm was attracted by how much it can build on the property and the investments in the South Lake Union area made by Amazon.com, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Vulcan.

Onni paid $62.5 million for the two blocks last year.

Onni has offices in Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Mexico. It owns and manages more than 4,200 apartments and 5 million square feet of commercial space.

Onni Group wants to build four towers, with 1,950 residential units over a 44,000-square-foot retail podium


Update on this massive project.

West Seattle Whole Foods Plan Approved



Quote:
WEST SEATTLE—Despite protests from former mayor Mike McGinn, the Seattle City Council has approved the Whittaker, a mixed-use project proposed for 4755 Fauntleroy Way S.W. The controversy stemmed from anchor tenant Whole Foods, which is not union and also wanted permission to take over an alley next to the structure. [PSBJ]
