Handsome tower, if a bit bland.

I like it! Any office in the great city of Seattle is good! This city is booming and I'm loving it! Hopefully the amazon plan goes through!

Not bad looking, but you have to subtract 4 floors from the render...it's been value-engineered to 36 floors.

This proposal is really a waste of one of the few plots in Seattle with an unlimited ceiling cap...oh well, it's density I guess.

No way really? That does suck! Seattle seems pretty harsh with its ceiling, so that is bad news!

Schnitzer gears up for towers in both Seattle and Bellevue
The developer may start building the garages for both before landing an anchor tenant if demand seems strong.
By LYNN PORTER
Journal Staff Reporter
Developer Schnitzer West said an office building it plans at 415 106th Ave. N.E. in downtown Bellevue could be up to 22 stories and 450,000 square feet, and it may start constructing the garage before landing an anchor tenant if demand seems strong.

The firm may also start the garage for a 38-story, 750,000-square-foot office tower called Madison Centre it is developing at Fifth Avenue and Madison Street in downtown Seattle, according to Pam Hirsch, senior investment director and managing partner for Schnitzer.

Schnitzer shows new Madison Centre design
By JOURNAL STAFF

Schnitzer West has unveiled new designs this week for an office tower it is planning at 505 Madison St. in downtown Seattle.

The project is called Madison Centre and had been on hold since 2008, but Schnitzer recently set it back on track, making several changes to its earlier plans. A master use permit issued in 2009 has remained in effect.

NBBJ is the architect.

The latest proposal reduces the tower height from 38 stories to 36, and adds 3,000 square feet to the footprint. The total size of the tower is 750,000 square feet.

Other changes include moving a public plaza to a sunnier spot on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Madison Street, and the adding a 50-foot-tall glass rotunda to the same corner.

The rotunda is visible in the image at the base of the tower.

A coffee shop and second entry are planned on Madison.

Just to the south of Schnitzer's site, Daniels Real Estate and Stockbridge Capital Group of San Francisco said they will begin work this fall on a 43-story hotel and office tower at Fifth Avenue and Columbia Street that has also been on hold for several years.

Yah, certainly not the most exciting thing ever but replacing the two run down 2-or-so story buildings that its replacing makes this a great project for our already pretty dense Central Business District.

The Financial/Goverment District is an odd mix of some of our largest buildings and underused sites. It was a midcentury and 1980s expansion of the CBD proper (which was mostly downhill to the west and north), and still looks like it. This building plus 5th & Columbia and the Triad block, would bring it to a new level of cohesiveness.

'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.
