First look at the Cornish 20-story dorm building we've discussed previously:



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.

Mack plans tower on Western

By JOURNAL STAFF



Seattle developer Mack Urban has filed a proposal with the city of Seattle to build a 16-story residential building on a prominent waterfront site.



The site is at 1301 Western Ave., at the northwest corner of Western and University Street. It is a surface parking lot next to a Seattle Steam Co. plant.



Mack Urban, formerly Harbor Urban, signed a long-term lease for the site in August.



The proposal calls for 165 residential units, 140 parking spaces and 4,000 square feet of street-level retail.



Hewitt is the architect.



Representatives from Mack Urban were not immediately available to comment.



The Alaskan Way Viaduct, which runs along the west side of the site, is scheduled to be torn down in 2016.



A Seattle design review board is tentatively scheduled to hold an early design guidance meeting at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at Seattle City Hall.

Love that we're going to see new development along the waterfront to compliment the major redo of the infrastructure down there!

Two more housing projects planned for Seattle waterfront



Quote:
Goodman Real Estate will build a seven-story apartment building on a Seattle waterfront site where one of Seattle’s oldest businesses, Argens Safe and Lock Co., operated until earlier this year.

Meanwhile, another company, Mack Urban, is moving ahead with its plans for a 16-story residential building on the waterfront.

George Petrie, president and CEO of Seattle-based Goodman, said his company plans to build the seven-story project at 80 S. Main St., with units for people who make 100 percent of the area median income.

The greater downtown housing boom is officially over 10,000 units by my napkin count, for groundbreakings since 2010.

This project went into hold status during the recession but its back from the dead! Its the last developable lot on that block as the adjacent lot is under construction now and another 440' apartment tower is well underway across Pine Street. This section of the city is getting really dense!

Developer aims for four towers on Fairview parcels
A Canadian high-rise developer may construct up to 2 million square feet of residential space across the street from Amazon.com’s world headquarters in South Lake Union.

By Sanjay Bhatt
Seattle Times business reporter

A Canadian high-rise developer may construct up to 2 million square feet of residential space across the street from Amazon.com’s world headquarters, taking advantage of new height limits in the South Lake Union area.

In documents filed recently with the city, Vancouver-based Onni Group describes plans to build four residential towers on two full city blocks it is buying from The Seattle Times Co.

City rules allow building heights up to 240 feet on one block and up to 400 feet on another. In residential towers, each floor is typically about 10 feet high.

In July, Onni bought the block at Fairview Avenue North and Denny Way for $33.5 million. The company also is expected to close this month on the adjacent block north of John Street for $29 million.

An Onni executive didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Preliminary site plans call for about two-thirds of each block being developed, with walkways mid-block leading to central, publicly accessible courtyards.

On each block, two residential towers would rise above a “podium” between 45 feet and 65 feet in height. It’s unclear whether the podium will be primarily for retail or other uses. The documents also indicate there will be below-grade parking.

John Street would be lined with retail shops totaling about 18,000 square feet on each block, the documents indicate.

While the site plans don’t say how tall the towers might be, a preliminary application filed with the city says the project “will take advantage of height bonuses through affordable housing,” among other things.

In an interview this summer, Onni Group’s Executive Vice President Chris Evans said the project was his company’s first entry into the Seattle market. Most of Onni’s other residential projects are high-rise towers in major cities.

The preliminary documents don’t give any indication of Onni’s timeline for the project.

Other developers said the mega-project would almost surely be carried out in at least two, if not more, phases.

Via6, a 654-unit development opened last spring on a half block in the Denny Triangle, was one of the largest ever to open in Seattle in a single phase, said Matt Griffin, managing partner of developer Pine Street Group. It consists of two 24-story towers on a podium, Griffin said.

2000 3rd Ave in Seattle skyline by LCCIII, on Flickr

2000 3rd Ave is the tall building on the left of this view but to the right of the Darth Vader (all black angluar) building. Its an outdated view of downtown from years ago so its missing lots of towers but at least its good for some height perspective.

Canadian group buys development site in downtown Seattle

The British Columbia Investment Management Corp. paid $17.75 million for this nearly half-acre development site in downtown Seattle.


The British Columbia Investment Management Corp. paid $17.75 million for this nearly half-acre development site in downtown Seattle.

Marc Stiles

The British Columbia Investment Management Corp. paid $17.75 million on Tuesday for a nearly half-acre development site at Third Avenue and Virginia Street in downtown Seattle, public records show.

Seth Heikkila, a broker with Jones Lang LaSalle, said that Bentall Kennedy, a large real estate investment adviser whose U.S. headquarters are in Seattle, is representing the British Columbia pension fund, which invests on behalf of public sector clients.

The sale includes plans and permits for a 400-foot apartment tower along with the property, which is at the northeast corner of Third and Virginia, said Heikkila. It was unclear when construction might start. Gary Carpenter of Bentall Kennedy declined to comment Wednesday, and officials of the pension fund could not be reached.

Heikkila said it's his understanding that Bentall Kennedy has reworked the plans for the tower by removing some of the floors and increasing the floor-to-ceiling heights of the remaining stories. But, he said, he does not think there were any significant structural changes, and the tower should "be pretty similar" to what Ankrom Moisan Architects originally designed.

The seller was Investco Corp. of Sumner. In 2007, Investco had obtained the city’s OK to build a 43-story hotel and residential tower on the site that today is a surface parking lot. That permit expired in March, records show. Michael Corliss heads Investco, which was working with an affiliate, Seattle development company Tarragon, on the Third and Virginia project.

The property is next to a YWCA homeless shelter, and other social service agencies operate in the area. This did not depress interest, however. "Having those (agencies) adjacent to the property was not an impediment at all," said Heikkila, who brokered the deal with JLL colleagues David Young, Corey Marx and Matt Kemper.

"From that site you are just a few blocks from Amazon's expansion, and you have views of the water," Heikkila said.

This will be the second big apartment project Bentall Kennedy has worked on in recent years in downtown Seattle. Bentall Kennedy represented the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Multi-Employer Property Trust, which were Pine Street Group's financial partners on the 654-unit Via6 project.

77-story tower planned for downtown Seattle

Real estate developer Greg Smith said he plans to build the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle on a site where the famous Metropolitan Grill steakhouse operates.
At 77 stories, it would be one floor taller than Seattle's tallest building, Columbia Center.
Smith, CEO of Urban Visions, a privately held Seattle real estate development and brokerage company, said he has applied to the city for a master-use permit to build the skyscraper.
Construction won't start anytime soon. It can take a year or more to get the city's OK. Then a developer has to line up financing and wait for the market to ripen before starting to build. Smith thinks the time is right to start getting the city's approval, but said, “We are not in a rush. It's a long process.”
Smith is working with his brother, Mickey Smith, a principal at Martin Smith Inc., on the project. Martin Smith Inc. is a real estate investment and management company.
The tower is planned for most of the block between Second and Third avenues and Marion and Columbia streets. The Smiths and some co-investors have owned the property for years. Greg Smith declined to name the friends and family that own the property, though Jim Rowe, president of Consolidated Restaurants, which owns the Metropolitan Grill, said Consolidated is part of the group that owns that building.
Rowe and Greg Smith said the Met, a 30-year-old steakhouse, will be part of the new tower. Rowe said his company’s goal is to preserve the Met “as one of Seattle’s longstanding iconic restaurants” in the same location.
Other businesses on the development site are a Vision Quest fitness club at Second and Columbia, and multiple restaurants in a food court at Third and Marion.
The development site does not include the southeast corner of the block, where Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union operates.
Greg Smith said the plan is to have a podium at the base of the tower with retail. Above that options include office space with a hotel, topped by residential. Or “We might do all residential with a hotel,” Greg Smith said.
Excluding parking, the tower would total 1.7 million square feet.
This is the third high-rise proposed for the neighborhood. The other two are Daniels Real Estate’s 43-story Fifth + Columbia office and hotel project and Schnitzer West’s 37-story Madison Centre office tower at Fifth and Madison.
“Those buildings are behind us by a couple of blocks,” Greg Smith said, adding his tower will be closest to the waterfront and have views of every mountain. “Views count,” he said.
Plus, he said, the retail at the base of the building will “create an experience for the neighborhood.” He thinks the area lacks this now.
“What’s kind of cool about it is the birthplace of Seattle was here,” Smith said. “This is an opportunity to bring a tremendous amount of energy back to the street level.”
Architecturally, he wants the tower to be as iconic for Seattle as the Smith Tower.” (A different Smith family, from New York, developed that famous building, though the Seattle Smiths later owned it for a while.)
Greg Smith has not yet hired a designer for the tower and will solicit proposals from local, national and international firms. ZGF Architects, which has a Seattle office, is doing the preliminary design work.
“To me Seattle is a creative city,” he said, though he thinks the city lacks a tower with flair to match that, though he said he doesn't fault local design firms. “This building is that opportunity to create one that looks like it belongs in Seattle.”

Touchstone Finds Equity Partner For Troy Block Project



Quote:
Last we heard from Touchstone's 820K square-foot Troy Laundry Block (or Troy Block) project, they were unveiling designs for their Tetris-y 12-story and 13-story buildings. The only thing missing? An equity partner.

Problem solved as Touchstone is teaming up with USAA Real Estate to get going on their L-shaped office towers that will remake the corner of Boren Avenue and Thomas Street. Touchstone is currently awaiting construction permits to begin the project, which will eventually mean the demolition of the Troy Laundry building.

15-Story Hotel Coming Soon To South Lake Union



Quote:
Stanford Hotels Corp. is taking its plans for a 15-story hotel at 300 Terry Ave. in front of the design review board tonight in hopes to kickstart development by late 2014. The hotel will include approx. 283 rooms, a conference center, restaurant and roof garden. The total square-footage will top out around 139K. There won't be any parking on site, but there are nearby garages as well as a streetcar stop. It's TBD who the official hotel brand will be, though with a location close to Amazon, it should make for an attractive property.
