SEATTLE The Department of Planning and Development approved Vulcan Real Estate's plans for two six-story office buildings for Amazon.com at 500 Ninth Ave. N. and 515 Westlake Ave. N.
Vulcan representatives said earlier this month that construction was expected to begin in the first quarter of the year, and the space would be ready for Amazon to move in by 2015.
The two buildings will have a total of 377,000 feet of space with 534 underground parking spaces. There will be 15,000 square feet of retail space, and a connection between the two buildings between the third and fourth levels.
Vulcan will use an alley the city vacated as a 50-foot-wide pedestrian plaza in between the two buildings.
ZGF is the architect on the two-building project. GLY Construction is the general contractor.
