Mack Urban said it is preparing to start construction in November on a 16-story, 169-unit apartment building at 1301 Western Ave. near the waterfront.
It will have 3,600 square feet of retail and 130 underground parking spaces.
A design review meeting on the project is set for 5:30 p.m. June 17 in City Hall, at 600 Fifth Ave.
Ankrom Moisan Architects is the architect, and Exxel Pacific is the general contractor.
The site is a parking lot next to a Seattle Steam Co. plant. Mack Urban signed a long-term lease for the site last August.
The apartments are expected to open in June of 2016. That is the same year the Alaskan Way Viaduct, which runs along the west side of the site, is scheduled to be torn down.
The Seattle waterfront will see big changes starting in 2016. The city is planning a number of projects as part of the waterfront redevelopment, including a new pedestrian promenade, cycle track and a rebuilt Alaskan Way that accommodates all modes of travel.
The waterfront plan also calls for rebuilding two public piers and adding new parks, paths and pedestrian connections between downtown and the waterfront.
The city is still doing public outreach about the waterfront, which is being designed by James Corner Field Operations of New York.
