Greystar Real Estate Partners is planning another 420 housing units in a two-building complex in South Lake Union.
The site is on the west side of Fairview Avenue North between Republican and Harrison streets.
Plans just filed with the city show a 24-story tower with 239 units on the northern third of the block, and a seven-story, 181-unit building on the southern portion.
The proposal also calls for 11,000 square feet of commercial space and 500 underground parking stalls, which would be shared by both buildings. The commercial space will connect the two buildings at street level.
Weber Thompson is the architect.
A Seattle design review board will get its first look at the plans at a meeting scheduled for 8 p.m. Dec. 17 at Queen Anne Community Center, at 1901 First Ave. W.
The site is one block east of Amazon.com's South Lake Union campus and a block north of Touchstone Corp.'s 800,000-square-foot Troy Block office development.
South Carolina-based Greystar is also developing a site at 400 Boren Ave. N. on the same block as the new project. That 282-unit apartment building is under construction.
Weber Thompson also is designing the 400 Boren project. Compass General Construction Co. is the general contractor.
Greystar has another nearby project in the pipeline, a 161-unit apartment complex called Uptown Flats near Seattle Center.
The company says it is the largest apartment operator in the U.S. with around 385,000 units in over 100 markets and $1.5 billion of development underway.
