Architects for Equity Residential's proposed 40-story tower at 204 Pine St. have refined their design.
The Chicago-based developer wants to build 398 apartments along the busy corridor between Pike Place Market and downtown's retail core.
The 0.3-acre site is next to the Macy's parking garage.
The proposal includes 4,000 square feet of street-level retail and 10 levels of parking, half of it below ground.
The architects are a joint venture of Weber Thompson of Seattle and GBD of Portland, called WTGBD.
A city design-review board will give its recommendations at 5:30 p.m. today at Seattle City Hall, Room L280.
The refined design adds retail along Second Avenue, and boots the leasing office to an upper level. Other changes, such as shifting the location of the residential entry on Second, enabled designers to reduce the amount of screening needed for the parking above.
The street-level image shows the Second Avenue facade.
A six-floor amenity area is planned above the parking podium. The floor will house a gym, theater, yoga studio, pet wash, deck and the leasing office.
The rooftop will have an outdoor terrace and an indoor space.
Parking and loading will be accessible from the alley on the east side of the building.
Magnusson Klemencic Associates is the structural engineer.
