Vulcan Real Estate's plans for two more towers in South Lake Union are taking shape.
One project is at 401 Eighth Ave. N. The 23- or 24-story apartment tower will have between 285 and 300 units, and 225 spaces of underground parking.
At 520 Westlake Ave. N. Vulcan is looking at a 12-story office building with 322,000 square feet of space. The half-block project will include underground parking for 330 cars and 17,000 square feet of retail.
Design review meetings on both projects are set for Oct. 1 at Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W. The meeting on the apartment tower is at 6:30 p.m. Review of the office building starts at 8 p.m.
Runberg Architecture Group is designing the apartment tower and Lease Crutcher Lewis is doing preconstruction. NBBJ is the architect for the office building and GLY Construction is doing preconstruction.
The DJC first reported on both projects in May.
The preferred design for the housing project shows a skinny tower on the south side that occupies about half the site and a 45-foot podium on the north side. There will be a solarium on top of the podium and a rooftop amenity space.
The preferred design for the office project is called a “shifted tower.” The tower will sit on a 65-foot podium, leaving space for a deck on the Westlake side. Design also shows open space at street level on the south side near Westlake and Republican.
