Greystar is planning a two-building complex called Uptown Flats with 161 apartments one block from Seattle Center.
It will fill nearly half a block on West Thomas Street between First Avenue West and Queen Anne Avenue North.
Fifteen units will be live-work spaces on the ground floor. Underground parking will be provided for 113 vehicles.
An early design guidance meeting has been set for 8 p.m. Sept. 3 at Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W.
Preliminary documents show the buildings separated by an alley. The western building is larger, with 129 apartments — including some two- and three-bedroom units — nine live-work units and all of the parking.
The second building is on the east side of the alley, with 32 apartments and six live-work units.
The preferred design shows a courtyard in the western building that would face the alley.
Both buildings will be 65 feet tall but because of the grade change, the western building will be seven stories and the other will be six.
Weber Thompson is the architect and The Justen Co. is development manager.
The site now is home to Seattle Elks Lodge #92.
Charleston, South Carolina-based Greystar says it is the largest apartment operator in the U.S. with more than 385,000 units in 100 markets. The company has projects under way in South Lake Union and Redmond, and in eight other states.
