Vulcan Real Estate will start showing its plans tonight for the Lakefront Blocks: three blocks along Valley Street across from Lake Union.
The blocks are bounded by Westlake and Fairview avenues north, and Mercer and Valley streets. Each block will have a 13- to 16-story tower and a six-story structure.
The specifics are still evolving, said Vulcan's Real Estate Strategy Director Lori Mason Curran, but there will be a total of about 787,000 square feet of office space and approximately 370 apartments.
Here's a look at what Vulcan is planning for each block:
Block 37, between Westlake and Terry avenues north, will have a 16-story, 220-unit apartment tower and a six-story office building with 146,000 square feet.
Block 31, between Terry and Boren avenues north, will have a 14-story tower with six levels of office space topped by 80 apartments on eight levels. There will be a six-story office building on the block. Together the two structures will have 309,000 square feet of office space.
Block 25, between Boren and Fairview avenues north, is split in half for permitting purposes. The western half will have a 13-story tower with 145,600 square feet of office space on six levels and 70 apartments on seven floors above. A six-story, 187,267-square-foot office building is planned for the eastern half of the block.
An early design guidance meeting for Blocks 31 and 25 is set for 6:30 p.m. tonight at Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W.
Graphite Design Group is designing the three blocks and Runberg Architecture Group is consulting on the residential portion. GLY Construction is doing preconstruction services.
Mason Curran said there is no schedule for starting construction. The office buildings won't start without tenants. The housing will be “market-driven,” she said, though Vulcan could build the housing at the same time as the office buildings.
