Beautiful! Seattle seems like a serene utopia.

I have never been, but now that I live on the West Coast a trip seems more doable. I'll have to visit soon!

The tower would have 470 units, and there would be 386 stalls of underground parking, the land-use bulletin state.

The east side, now occupied by the company's South Lake Union Discovery Center, would have an 18-story office building with 400,000 square feet of space and a three-story commercial building. There would be below-grade parking for 442 cars. The Discovery Center, which gives an overview of real estate development in the area, will be dismantled and assembled at a new location. It was designed to be dismantled and moved when it was built about nine years ago.

This is an update from earlier this year, when company Director of Real Estate Investment Strategy Lori Mason Curran said Vulcan was considering two scenarios. The first would be all office space and the second is one office tower and one residential tower.

On Thursday, during a panel discussion at the Commercial Real Estate Women lunch, she said the plan now is to do a 400-foot tall residential tower and a 240-foot tall office tower, though she said, "We are still early on that."

She did not spell out a timeline for the project Thursday. Earlier she said it would depend on market conditions.

Vulcan has been in the news several times today. The company has also proposed a 12-story building in the space currently occupied by Guitar Center on Westlake Avenue North and Mercer.

Touchstone calls Tilt 49 a gateway between Capitol Hill, South Lake Union
By JOURNAL STAFF

Touchstone Corp. wants to turn parts of Boren Avenue into a gateway between Capitol Hill and South Lake Union, and its latest project — an 11-story office building and 36-story residential tower called Tilt 49 — will be a big part of that change.

The site is at 1812 Boren Ave. between Stewart and Howell streets. Tilt 49 will have 307,000 square feet of office space and 368 residential units, with 532 parking spaces on five-and-a-half underground levels.

Project documents show retail along Stewart Street and three small “pop-up” spaces along Boren, one of which is depicted as a flower shop in architectural renderings.

ZGF Architects is designing Tilt 49 and Swift Co. is the landscape architect.

A design review board is set to make a recommendation at a meeting that starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.

Touchstone's A-P Hurd declined to comment on the project.

With Tilt 49, Touchstone is doubling down on its vision for Boren. The developer is building Hill7 across the street from the Tilt 49 site at 1821 Boren Ave. Hill7 is a 14-story hotel and 11-story office tower.

Stewart Street is also due for a major makeover, with Trammell Crow Co.'s 21-story office tower at 1007 Stewart St.; R.C. Hedreen Co.'s 40-story hotel and apartment project at 807 Stewart St.; and RBF Property Group/GIS International Group's hotel and residential tower at 1121 Stewart St.

Chunk of the Seattle Times article about the newly proposed addition to Amazon's ever expanding downtown office tower campus-

"One of Amazon’s plans calls for replacing those buildings with a 24-story office tower and an eight-story office building with a combined 836,000 square feet of office space, ground-floor retail space, and underground parking for 836 vehicles. The buildings in that plan would face to the northwest and southeast, similar to the high-rise campus it is erecting across the street. But that design requires Amazon to build over an existing alley.

An alternative plan calls for a 24-story office tower and six-story office building with a combined 777,600 square feet of office space and underground parking for 778 cars, as well as a stand-alone one-story retail building. That proposal, in which the buildings face northeast and southwest, retains the alley between them.

It’s unclear why Amazon submitted two different sets of plans, and the company didn’t return calls for comment.

But getting the city to vacate an alley can be tricky. Two years ago, the company offered $5.5 million in streetcar and bicycling improvements to compensate for taking city-owned alleys for its planned high-rise campus.

More recently, Seattle developer R.C. Hedreen Co.’s plans for a massive convention hotel at Ninth Avenue and Stewart Street have run into challenges, in part, over its desire to build over a city-owned alley."

Amazon Submits Plans for Two More Denny Triangle Towers



Quote:
Amazon recently submitted two different sets of plans to build two office towers on the block bounded by Seventh and Eighth avenues and Bell and Blanchard streets, just

One plans calls for a 24-story office tower and eight-story office building with 836K square feet of office space, ground-floor retail and underground parking for 836 cars. The other plan calls for a 24-story office tower and six-story office building with a 777K square feet of office space and underground parking for 778 cars. That second plan also includes a one-story retail building.

Amazon bought the block for just over $52.2M back in January. Current buildings on the lot include Budget Car Rental, the Hurricane Cafe and a former motel leased to Cornish College of the Arts, all of which will have to move.

According to commercial real estate trade group NAIOP, Amazon will occupy 8.2M square feet of space in Seattle by 2021.

Miami builder turns up the heat with Seattle acquisition in white-hot Denny Triangle
Marc Stiles
Puget Sound Business Journal

A company called Crescent Heights is the latest to stake a claim to a development site in the Denny Triangle area of downtown Seattle.

On Friday, Miami-based Crescent Heights paid two different sellers a total of $18.5 million for much of the block at the northwest corner of Minor Avenue and Stewart Street. The company is planning to build either a high-rise condo or apartment project there, said Tim Foster, a Kidder Mathews commercial real estate broker who represented the Fassio family, the seller of one of the properties.

The Fassios sold a parcel at 1921 Minor Ave., where a small office building stands. To the south, Crescent bought a larger property that's now a surface parking lot from Cassieford Co. Together the properties total just over six-tenths of an acre. The purchase price works out to $660 a square foot.


Demand for property is high in the Denny Triangle where some large commercial real estate projects, including Amazon.com's future campus, are under construction. More projects are planned in the area.

Crescent has built condominium and apartment projects, office buildings and hotels in major urban and coastal cities across the country, according to its website, which shows a Seattle project would be the company's first in the Puget Sound region. Company officials could not be reached Monday.

Nearby the Crescent site a hotel/office project called Hill7 is under construction. Also planned nearby are a hotel/condo project called Daola Seattle, an office/residential project called Tilt49 and a 21-story office tower.



At least one more tower coming up the pipeline!

Amenities will feature a SPA, a restaurant, and a bar."

Matches the ground floor site plan we saw in the EDG 1 packet.
Found this on the developer's site.

New Pike Place Market neighbor: Luxury 40-story apartment building breaks ground

Equity Residential officials on Tuesday said they're starting construction of a 40-story luxury apartment tower in downtown Seattle at 204 Pine St.
Another developer had started construction of a hotel/condo project on this site near Pike Place Market, but work was halted when the Great Recession started and the excavated hole was filled in. Equity acquired the half-block site in 2012 for $22 million, and has operated the property as a surface parking lot.
Scheduled to be done in 2017, the 398-unit project will have studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Anticipated rental rates were not available.
“We believe this tower will set a new standard for luxury urban living – from our unbeatable central location, sustainable design and on-site amenities that together give residents a best-in-market experience,” Equity Vice President Bradley Karvasek said in a statement.
Amenities include a 24/7 concierge, two resident lounges, a pool and game room, a dog lounge, two club rooms with kitchen and dining space on the 40th floor and a rooftop deck. In the below- and above-grade parking garage, there will be electric-vehicle charging stations, Zip cars and bicycle storage.
The project also will have approximately 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail. There will changing rooms for retail staff who bicycle to work.
Seattle-based Weber Thompson and a Portland architecture firm, GBD, jointly designed the project that Turner Construction will build.

'Explosive growth' projected for tech tenants in Seattle office space

For months commercial real estate brokers have been buzzing about big office leases on the horizon, though details were fuzzy. On Wednesday, the picture became clearer.

Joe Gowan, a broker with JLL, said he and his Seattle colleagues expect to see "explosive growth" among companies like Twitter, Facebook, Zillow and DocuSign that are already in town.

"I would expect to see one or a couple of those names do something substantial here in the near future," Gowan said.

It's a similar story in downtown Bellevue, where JLL broker Charlie Malley said Valve Software is looking at more than doubling the amount of space it's in to more than 200,000 square feet.

Expedia, now in around 500,000 square feet of space, is looking to grow to between 700,000 square feet and 1 million square feet, Malley said.

Concur is looking for an additional 70,000 square feet of space, though Malley doesn't expect anything to happen until German software company SAP completes its $8.3 billion acquisition of the company later this year or early next.

This is good news for real estate developers who are building just over 3 million square feet of office space in the Puget Sound region. But the question remains: will the anticipated tenant activity be enough to fill up all these new offices?


The dynamics of this dilemma are unfolding in downtown Seattle at Fifth and Marion, where two rival projects – the 37-story Madison Centre and the 44-story Fifth + Columbia hotel and office project – are starting construction.

Gowan said Seattle could "certainly support one new tower," though it remains to be seen if there's enough activity to justify two.

Gowan and Malley's comments came during a conference calls when JLL released its third quarter statistics. According to the company, the amount of vacant space in Seattle is down to 11.1 percent, a level not seen since 2008. This gives Seattle the fourth lowest vacancy rate in the country behind New York City, Portland and San Francisco.

The region saw some big leases during the third quarter, with Amazon.com taking a total of 374,000 square feet in Belltown and Lake Union, Costco leasing 176,000 square feet in Issaquah and Weyerhaeuser announcing that the company will relocate from Federal Way to Pioneer Square in Seattle, where it will occupy 175,000 square feet.

The situation in Bellevue seems more dicey. That's because if Expedia and Valve do move they're expected to give back "pretty significant amounts of space" when they move out of their current offices, Malley said.

Nonetheless, landlords are "very bullish" and are building or planning to build big buildings. Trammell Crow Co. and Kemper Development have begun moving dirt at two Bellevue sites, but neither has put up construction cranes, the sign that a project is going forward. But "they'll be going up in the not so distant future," Malley said after the conference call.

Market watchers are asking the same "are the projects for real?" question in Seattle, especially at Fifth and Marion. Crews have begun demolishing old buildings and moving dirt to make way for Madison Centre and Fifth + Columbia. But neither project has erected a crane.

Steve Cook of Schnitzer West, developer of Madison Centre, said excavation for his company's project is expected to start in the fourth quarter of this year. Excavation and construction of the garage will take 10 months, he said, adding that Schnitzer West will deliver the full project.

Whoa, Nellie – Apartment developer buys site from Cornish College for 400-foot tower

Cornish College of the Arts this week sold a half-acre site next to Amazon's future campus to an apartment development company that's planning a 396-unit apartment project.

Records show that GID Development Group paid $16 million for the Seattle site at Ninth Avenue and Lenora Street. Across the street at 2030 Eighth Ave., construction is under way on another 40-story GID apartment project.

GID has applied to the city for permits to do the shoring and excavation work for the Ninth and Lenora project, which will be 400-feet tall with nearly 7,800 square feet of street-level retail and 234 stalls of underground parking. The plan, according to project architect Weber Thompson, is to design the tower to complement a triangular-shaped park that the city is planning next door at Lenora and Westlake Avenue.


Founded 100 years ago by piano teacher Nellie Cornish, the college owns other property in the area where it's headquartered. The school has emerged as a real estate player in one of the hottest real estate markets.

This spring Cornish started construction of a 20-story tower with dorm rooms and classrooms at 2025 Terry Ave. It's scheduled to be done next fall. In addition to housing Cornish students, the building will house students at nearby City University, which will lease dorm rooms from Cornish.

Kidder Mathews real estate broker Tim Foster, who marketed the Ninth and Lenora property for Cornish, said GID was the second group to take a run at the property. He wouldn't name the first. Foster marketed the property with Jeff Huntington and Lloyd Low, now with JLL. Tim O'Keefe of CBRE represented GID in negotiations.

GID is a privately held company. The two Seattle towers are GID's first in the Puget Sound region. The 54-year-old company has acquired or developed more than 60,000 residential units and 15 million square feet of commercial space, according to the GID website.







Really want this one to go in this cycle. Fingers crossed!
