Vulcan Real Estate is working on one missing piece of its plan to develop three full-block sites across from Lake Union Park.
The developer is proposing to build a six-story, 264,000-square-foot office building at 609 Fairview Ave. N.
Graphite Design Group is listed as the architect on an application filed with the city of Seattle.
Last year Vulcan started moving forward with proposals to build 16-story residential towers and other related structures on each of the three blocks between Westlake and Fairview avenues North, and Valley and Mercer streets. But the plans did not involve the east half of “Block 25,” which is bounded by Boren Avenue North, Mercer Street, Fairview Avenue North and Valley Street.
Preliminary plans for the office building include 6,900 square feet of retail on Valley and 250 underground parking spaces. The lobby is on Mercer and the garage entrance is off the alley on the west side of the building.
Lori Mason Curran, real estate investment strategy director for Vulcan, said the firm is teeing up the project to be shovel-ready, but has no tenants yet.
The site is a block north of Amazon.com's South Lake Union campus.
Vulcan had a series of early design guidance meetings last year regarding plans for the tower sites, but the projects have not advanced to the permitting phase. Mason Curran told the DJC last July that construction was not slated to start anytime soon.
