Beacon Capitol Moves Forward With 24-Story 'Bellevue Center'



Quote:
Bellevue Center will be the name of a 24-story office tower at 10833 N.E. Eighth St. in downtown Bellevue once it's completed, now that Beacon Capital has received conditional approval from city officials. Per PSBJ, the complex will include 524,000 square feet of total space, some of which will be used for retail and restaurant. Plans also call for roughly 1,250 stalls of underground parking and a plaza nearly two-acres big. Beacon is expected to apply for their building permit by the end of month, no word on how long it's expected to take to build.

Tweak In Civic Square Tower Deal May Help It Happen



Quote:
Six years ago, Triad Development teased Seattle with plans for a massive project on the block along Fourth and James called Civic Square. At the time, the city gave them until the end of this year to close the purchase on the land or pay $1M in extension fees. Instead, Triad has agreed to provide $1M promissory notes that hold its principals responsible.

The amended deal allows Triad to free up that money for development for what is now going to be a 42-story office and residential tower that includes a plaza with water fountain features. Triad says they've already invested $15M into the project, whose construction continues to sit in the TBD file.

Amazon Adding To Seattle Footprint





Quote:
Somehow, South Lake Union & Downtown Seattle needs more office space. And if anyone is going to provide it, it's Vulcan. Vulcan Inc. announced Friday that it's building two new office buildings for Amazon.com in South Lake Union and prepping one downtown, per PSBJ:

Quote:
The buildings, which Vulcan calls phases seven and eight of Amazon's headquarters, will add 614,000 square feet of office to Amazon's growing South Lake Union headquarters. Vulcan was the primary developer of the first five phases, which have 1.7 million square feet of office, and construction is underway on the sixth phase, which will have about 362,000 square feet.

But that's just the beginning. Around Seventh Avenue and Virginia Street in downtown Seattle, Amazon is developing a 3.3-million-square-foot high-rise campus on three blocks; construction has begun on the first block.
The buildings will cost about $266M to build, according to Vulcan, who anticipate the first building opening in late 2015, the second in 2016 and the downtown Seattle campus possibly by 2017.

FYI, this also means that Amazon is now almost 7.3 million square feet of office space in Seattle.

Touchstone's Troy Landry Blocks More Like Tetris Blocks



Quote:
Touchstone's Troy Laundry Block, finally has some renderings and they're worthy of the hype behind this 800,000-square-foot project that includes a 12-story and 13-story building. The Tetris-y design makes things fairly blocky but if they keep that warm brown color, that should help it stand out in the ever-growing South Lake Union skyline.

The complex rests between Boren and Fairview Avenues and Harrison and Thomas streets. The two buildings will be built over underground parking (1,120 stalls) and contain primarily technology office space with some retail at street-level. A pedestrian courtyard with plenty of possibilities is located in between the two structures. Additionally 4,000 square feet of retail space will be located on Thomas Street.

Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.

Unions are strong in Seattle and Whole Foods just doesn't treat employees well enough to gain community support.

I like the idea of covering 5+1 projects here (woodframes are often six stories with five of wood), but man there are a lot of them. Seattle must have 5,000 units underway that look just like that rendering but different colors and detailing (apartment analysts said we had 10,000 units underway recently, and I'm guessing half are like that). Also some suburban hotspots have a lot more going up, like Downtown Redmond and Downtown Mercer Island.

I like them. For one, they can be built much more cheaply than concrete. They can also pack in a lot of units. A 120x240' site can often fit 150-200 units, a higher density than a lot of highrises.

A Swedish pension fund plans to bet big and build tall in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood with three residential towers.
Alecta, one of the world’s largest pension funds, with more than $75 billion in assets, will make its pitch to a city design review board Aug. 21 for the tallest of the trio, a 30-story tower at Columbia Street and Eighth Avenue.
Its plans for a 24-story tower at Terry Avenue and Jefferson Street and a 23-story tower at Boylston Avenue and Seneca Street have already received city approval.
The pension fund didn’t pick Seattle because of the University of Washington’s Department of Scandinavian Studies. Or because of the pancake breakfasts at the Swedish Cultural Center just north of downtown.
No, it comes down to surging job growth, especially at tech firms, and the fact that many of their workers want the urban lifestyle.
“This is a city where everyone wants to live right now,” said Alecta spokeswoman Natalie Price.
At an average construction cost of $54 million each, the three towers would collectively add about 830 market-rate units in a neighborhood with three major hospitals. The 30-story tower at 800 Columbia St. is also just blocks from Seattle’s central business district.
Alecta’s bet on Seattle started in December 2010.
The pension fund bought the parking lot at Seneca Street and Boylston Avenue for $4 million and two parcels on Jefferson Street and Terry Avenue for $5.4 million. Both sites were previously owned by developers who had proposed residential high-rises but lost the properties to foreclosure during the financial crisis.
Then in early 2012, the pension fund spent $7.9 million in two deals to acquire three adjacent lots on Eighth Avenue.
Its 504 Terry Avenue project, previously owned by bankrupt developer Michael Mastro, is the only one that involves demolishing existing housing: the San Juan Apartments, a 42-unit complex built in 1959, and a three-story house converted into an office.

Designs Approved For 30-Story Tower At 8th & Columbia



Quote:
First Hill is one step closer to getting a 30-story apartment complex now that the East Design Review Board has approved plans for the Eighth and Columbia tower. The building will include 287 apartments ranging from studio to 2-BR as well as 234 parking spaces and a 9,000-square-foot neighborhood park (with bocce!) on the corner of Eighth and Columbia. Weber Thompson is the designer and Alecta is the developer. An Alecta official told urbnlivn the building could end up being offered as condos, but that won't be decided just yet.

That area of Capitol Hill is changing quickly. I walked through recently and I think you could hit five tower cranes with a golf shot from one spot.
