Vulcan Real Estate announced Amazon.com will take 26,000 square feet in the historic Supply Laundry Building in South Lake Union.

Amazon previously filed plans to occupy space in three other buildings: 635 Elliott Ave. W., 5th and Bell, and Blanchard Plaza.

Records show Amazon is planning to take floors two through 15 at the 15-story Blanchard Plaza, the first three floors of the six-story Fifth and Bell, and all four floors at 635 Elliott.

Amazon will occupy more than 550,000 square feet in all four buildings.

Vulcan renovated the two-story, 34,000-square-foot Supply Laundry Building as part of the Stack House apartment project. Amazon filed for city permits earlier this month to do tenant improvements in the space.

Records show Amazon's architect is I/A Interior Architects, and Lease Crutcher Lewis is the general contractor.

Stack House opened last year. The seven-story complex has 278 apartments and 14,000 square feet of retail at 1280 Harrison St. The project involved saving the 108-year-old Supply Laundry and a 140-foot smoke stack.

Runberg Architecture Group designed Stack House and Exxel Pacific was the general contractor.

Vulcan said in a press release a northern-Italian restaurant called Osteria Rigoletto will open in the Supply Laundry Building in September. Thampy Thilakarajah will open a deli called Metropolitan Cafe & Deli in one of the Stack House retail spaces in September.

Amazon has started work on the first of three Denny Triangle office towers, which could eventually total 3.3 million square feet of space. If Amazon builds all that new space it will occupy almost 7.5 million square feet in Seattle.
