LMN-led team will design $1B Seattle convention center expansion

Puget Sound Business Journal


Washington State Convention Center officials on Monday said that a team made up of LMN Architects, GGN and SHoP is the "apparent successful submitter" in the competition to design a major expansion of the center in downtown Seattle.

Subject to completion of contract negotiations, Seattle-based LMN will lead the team as the prime architect. GGN (Gustafson Guthrie Nichol), also of Seattle, will be the urban designer and landscape architect. And New York City-based SHoP (the firm's name appears to be a collection of the first letters of the founding principals' names) will be a resource for co-development planning, center officials said in a press release.

The names of the other finalists were not immediately available.

Construction is planned to begin in early 2017 and be done in 2020. The preliminary cost of the project is more than $1 billion.

The proposal is to expand northeast from the current facility over the Convention Center Transit Station and where Honda of Seattle operates. Late last year, the quasi-public body that operates the center paid nearly $56.5 million for the Honda site on Howell between Boren and Ninth avenues. The center still needs to buy from King County the transit center block between Ninth and Boren and Olive Way and Pine Street.

The center's 205,700 square feet of "heavy-load exhibition space" no longer meets the needs of a growing number of conventions, trade shows and regional corporate clients, stated the new release from the convention center. The expansion would add approximately 300,000 square feet of exhibit space, 135,000 square feet of meeting/break-out space, and one ballroom.

Pine Street Group LLC of Seattle is the project manager for the expansion.

Awesome! This is the team I was hoping for!

1121 Stewart St

Project has been quiet but it seems like they're still plugging away.

Chinese investment site (complete with renderings we haven't seen before that include 1200 Stewart, 1823 Minor and Tilt 49):

Screen grabs from what I can only assume is the forthcoming US website for the project:

10 years in the making, massive Stadium East project is officially launched


Marc Stiles
Staff Writer
Puget Sound Business Journal

Seattle real estate development company Urban Visions on Wednesday unveiled plans to turn a seven-acre industrial property at the terminus of Interstate 90 into a 1-million-square-foot office and retail campus called Stadium East.

Under the proposal, seven new buildings will rise eight stories and have a total of around 860,000 square feet of office space with the rest of the space dedicated to retail. There will be 1,000 stalls of underground parking.

Urban Visions still must get the city of Seattle's OK to build the project, which company CEO Greg Smith said he will not develop until he pre-leases the space.

"We'll wait for the right tenant like we did for Weyerhaeuser," Smith said, referring to the timber giant's decision to move its headquarters to 200 Occidental, a new building that Smith's company is developing in Pioneer Square near Stadium East.

Located at the intersection I-90 and Airport Way South just east of CenturyLink and Safeco fields, Stadium East is the latest example of how downtown's energy is shifting away from South Lake Union toward the central business district and Pioneer Square. Urban Visions hopes to cash in on Stadium East's proximity to billions of dollars of rapid mass transit investments and other infrastructure in the south downtown area, including the planned $1 billion makeover of the city's waterfront.

"What's cool about this is the new light rail line to Bellevue, it goes by [Stadium East]," said Smith, who called the project "a true transit-oriented development" at the "true front door to Seattle."

Depending on where you are on the project site, you're either a few blocks from the Stadium Station light-rail stop or the Union Station/King Street Station regional mass-transit hub.

It's a different story in traffic-choked South Lake Union, where Amazon.com is headquartered, Smith said.

"Traffic has become a nightmare in South Lake Union," he said. Smith thinks that more and more, people and businesses will gravitate to south downtown and Pioneer Square, a historic district known for the character of its brick buildings and plazas. It's already happening with tech and other companies moving to the area.

On its face, Stadium East seems like a classic tech campus. But Smith said that Urban Visions will market the property to an array of users, including law firms and financial companies.

Urban Visions and the project architect, Ryan Mullenix of the Seattle firm NBBJ, are designing Stadium East to maximize employee productivity. Corporate America is changing its work spaces by providing employees more natural light and collaboration spaces located on large floorplates. Stadium East's floors will be 50,000 square feet.

Smith said Urban Visions' in-house team will market the space for lease. In the meantime, he plans to start getting the city's OK for the project later this year. He hopes to begin going through the city's early design guidance process next month.

Construction boom? New report indicates Seattle's not seen anything yet

If you think that Seattle is at the apex of construction activity, think again.
That's the takeaway of a new report about the amount of construction contracts that were award in October for future work in the Puget Sound metro area. According to Dodge Data & Analytics, contracts for office, retail, hotels, warehouses and other non-residential projects, totaled just more than $1.1 billion. That's more than five times the $219.7 million worth of deals signed in October 2013.
The staggering amount of the increase is cause for skepticism. The Business Journal reached out to officials of Dodge Data & Analytics for more information, but has not yet heard back from the company that formerly operated as McGraw Hill Construction.
During the first 10 months of 2014, contacts for non-residential projects hit more than $3.56 billion, up from more than $2.25 billion during the same period in 2013. That's an increase of 58 percent.
The non-residential category does not include public infrastructure projects, such as the highway and light-rail work, according to the Dodge Data & Analytics report.
Contracts for single- and multi-family projects in the Seattle region signed this October hit $530.3 million, up from $413.5 million in October 2013. The total number of residential contracts signed during the first 10 months of this year was nearly $3.7 billion, up 7 percent over the same period last year.
Data from a local source, the Downtown Seattle Association, are somewhat parallel to Dodge's information. More than 100 projects worth at least $1 million are under way in and around central Seattle. These projects total $3.1 billion, following on $1.4 billion in buildings completed in the last two years.
Still, the region's construction industry is not back to the peak of 2007 when, according to the state Employment Security Department, there were 101,100 construction jobs. Three months ago, the number of construction jobs in the Seattle-Bellevue-Everett area was at 79,000. More information about the region's construction industry was in an in-depth article, Inside Seattle's $5B construction boom, that the Business Journal published in October.
