Urban Union, a 12-story, 268,000-square-foot office building, is being completed at 501 Fairview Ave. N. in South Lake Union and is fully leased to Amazon. The developer is Schnitzer West.

A representative for CollinsWoerman, the architect, said Amazon will move in early next year.

Urban Union has a large wood art element in the lobby designed by BAMO, an interior design firm based in San Francisco. BAMO's website lists other projects it has worked on for Schnitzer West including Madison Centre in Seattle, Centre 425 in Bellevue and Civica Cherry Creek in Denver.

Urban Union will also have 6,000 square feet of retail, and 392 underground parking stalls. A two-story gathering place with “third place” work spaces, restaurant, coffee shop, flexible meeting rooms and a fitness center are also planned, and there will be a glass-enclosed conference center with an outdoor terrace on the roof.

Here's the project team: Sellen Construction, contractor; BAMO Inc, interior designer; Weisman Design Group, landscape architect; Coughlin Porter Lundeen, civil engineer; DCI Engineers, structural engineer; Hermanson, mechanical engineer; Cochran, electrical engineer; and Glazier Le Architects, interior architect.

Oscar Oliveira and Damon McCartney of the Broderick Group represented Schnitzer West in the Amazon lease. Schnitzer West’s retail listing brokers are Brynn Telkamp and Tracy Cornell with JSH Properties.

Clay Nielsen and Ed Curtis of JLL represented Amazon.
