Richard Mack, who is CEO and co-founder of Mack Real Estate Group in New York City, said he thinks Seattle is the country's most dynamic real estate market right now.

And to underscore that assessment, his company's West Coast partner, Mack Urban, is eyeing a 40-story residential tower at Terry Avenue and John Street in South Lake Union. The site is at 1001 John St.

Planning is just getting started for the tower, but it could have about 415 units and 300 parking spaces.

Paul Keller, founding principal and CEO of Mack Urban, said the project team is still coming together. The exact number and types of units have not been decided.

CollinsWoerman is listed on project documents.

Mack Urban bought the site in December 2014 for $11.5 million, or approximately $623 per square foot.

The land is a block away from the site where Onni Group is planning a megaproject, which could have four residential towers with more than 1,900 units, and 45,700 square feet of retail.

Mack said the high number of homegrown companies is a big part of why Seattle is so dynamic. Keller said Seattle has the same draws as San Francisco, but the cost of living here is significantly cheaper.

Seattle is still going strong economically and enjoying what Keller calls “accretive job growth,” meaning well-paid, full-time positions that benefit the local economy.

Both Mack and Keller said they appreciate the larger ongoing conversation about the city's future.

“Seattle thinks about itself as a 21st-century city,” Mack said. That means light rail, pedestrian-friendly planning and looking at ways to help people live here without a car.

Mack Urban's enthusiasm about Seattle can be seen in its diverse set of projects here. It has opened Velo and Ray, two apartment complexes in the Fremont/Wallingford area that total about 300 units.

Mack Urban will soon top off Eleanor, with 260 units near the future light rail station in Roosevelt. Mack Urban also is constructing Cyrene, a 16-story apartment tower at Western and University near the waterfront. Keller said the structure will start to rise in November, and be done in the first quarter of 2017.

Mack Urban says sloped site offers opportunities for SLU tower design

By NAT LEVY
Journal Staff Reporter

Mack Urban wants a hillclimb and public plaza to be a prominent piece of the 43-story apartment tower it is planning at 1001 John St., in South Lake Union.

The tower will have about 430 units, 2,800 square feet of retail and 300 underground parking spaces.

The developer plans to put the tower on the southeast portion of the site to maximize views of the Space Needle from the public space. The hillclimb will help people navigate the 53-foot grade change between John Street and Terry Avenue North.

“We found the topography to be less of a challenge and much more of an opportunity,” said Paul Keller, founding principal and CEO of Mack Urban.

Mack Urban — and its predecessor companies — have experience using this kind of elevation change to create a public benefit.

Harbor Properties, which eventually became part of Mack Urban, built Harbor Steps with a hillclimb at University Street between First Avenue and Western.

Martha Barkman is Mack Urban's vice president of development, and she was the project manager for Harbor Steps.

“I know firsthand how powerful pedestrian connections can be in making Seattle a walkable city,” Barkman said in a press release about the John Street tower. “I'm really pleased that we could make this part of our project. It's responsible, urban design.”

The hillclimb will also have an elevator. Mack Urban will build a public plaza on the site connecting to John Street and The Seattle Times park.

CollinsWoerman is the architect. Keller said Mack Urban has solicited proposals from three general contractors and is planning to make a decision by the end of the month.

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

This is the developer's first project in South Lake Union, but not its first high rise in Seattle. It built Viktoria, a 24-story apartment building on Second Avenue between Virginia and Stewart, working with Goodman Real Estate and Capri Capital Partners.

“We are in the business of continuing to raise our game and continuing to provide product that people recognize is of superior quality,” Keller said, “and we operate these buildings at a high level that makes people want to live in them.”

Keller said he has talked to other firms planning projects nearby such as Amazon.com, Onni Group and Holland Partner Group, but one firm Mack Urban hasn't been able to connect with is H5 Capital.

H5 Capital of Beverly Hills, California, recently began planning two 42-story residential towers on the same block as Mack Urban's project.

Keller said Mack Urban's primary focus right now is reaching out to nearby stakeholders, and putting together clear and concise plans for design review, but he said he is concerned about having an issue down the line with H5 about the number of towers on the block and where they are located.

Seattle's zoning rules limit the number of towers that can be built on each block in South Lake Union.

“The unfortunate reality right now is it appears that we are headed toward a potential conflict from a planning perspective,” Keller said.


Mack Urban’s 43-story tower at 1001 John St. will include a hillclimb to connect John Street and Terry Avenue North.




H5 Capital of Beverly Hills has proposed two 42-story towers on the same block.
