Should point out this is just round 1 of several rounds of design review. It will change at least a little before design is finalized and approved.

Whoa, Nellie – Apartment developer buys site from Cornish College for 400-foot tower

Cornish College of the Arts this week sold a half-acre site next to Amazon's future campus to an apartment development company that's planning a 396-unit apartment project.

Records show that GID Development Group paid $16 million for the Seattle site at Ninth Avenue and Lenora Street. Across the street at 2030 Eighth Ave., construction is under way on another 40-story GID apartment project.

GID has applied to the city for permits to do the shoring and excavation work for the Ninth and Lenora project, which will be 400-feet tall with nearly 7,800 square feet of street-level retail and 234 stalls of underground parking. The plan, according to project architect Weber Thompson, is to design the tower to complement a triangular-shaped park that the city is planning next door at Lenora and Westlake Avenue.


Founded 100 years ago by piano teacher Nellie Cornish, the college owns other property in the area where it's headquartered. The school has emerged as a real estate player in one of the hottest real estate markets.

This spring Cornish started construction of a 20-story tower with dorm rooms and classrooms at 2025 Terry Ave. It's scheduled to be done next fall. In addition to housing Cornish students, the building will house students at nearby City University, which will lease dorm rooms from Cornish.

Kidder Mathews real estate broker Tim Foster, who marketed the Ninth and Lenora property for Cornish, said GID was the second group to take a run at the property. He wouldn't name the first. Foster marketed the property with Jeff Huntington and Lloyd Low, now with JLL. Tim O'Keefe of CBRE represented GID in negotiations.

GID is a privately held company. The two Seattle towers are GID's first in the Puget Sound region. The 54-year-old company has acquired or developed more than 60,000 residential units and 15 million square feet of commercial space, according to the GID website.

GID buys land for 2nd Lenora tower
By JOURNAL STAFF

SEATTLE — An entity related to GID Development Group of Boston paid $16 million for land at 2101 Ninth Ave. where it is planning a 41-story, 396-unit apartment project.

The seller is an entity related to Cornish College of the Arts. Cornish bought the site in 2003 for $4.6 million.

GID has started construction on a 41-story, 355-unit apartment tower at Eighth and Lenora, across the street.

Permit records show GID filed for shoring and excavation permits for the tower on Ninth last month.

Weber Thompson is designing both projects for GID. Sellen Construction Co. is the general contractor for the Eighth and Lenora tower.

Land Use Permit issued. Some construction schedule details:

"Abatement begins in November 2014 with structural demolition to follow in March 2015. Foundation shoring will begin in May 2015. Foundation construction is scheduled to begin in October 2015 and the structure is scheduled to top out in March 2017. Tenant occupancy is expected in October 2017."

"Shoring and excavation activities are expected to
occur from May 2015 to September 2015. Drilling of support piles will
occur at approximately 50 feet from the closest sensitive receivers and this
activity will occur anywhere from 0-20 feet below street level at the existing
sidewalk and building slab on grade. Pile installation may occur between the
hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on
Saturday. Every effort will be made to complete drilling activities by 6 p.m.
daily. As the shoring progresses downward with the excavation, tiebacks
will be drilled, grouted and stressed into the earth wall. The equipment
required for this process uses compressed air for drilling and will generate
more noticeable noise than the excavation equipment or support pile drill
rigs (diesel engines), but will not cause any noticeable vibration. The work
hours for the tieback drilling will be limited to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday
through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday."
