A tower crane has popped up at the old Rainier Brewery site at 3250 Airport Way S., on a spot where several above-ground tanks once stood.
Documents submitted to the city show the plan is to build a seven-story mini-warehouse with custom craft spaces and parking for 112 cars, both at grade and below grade. About 7,400 square feet of retail would face Airport Way on the ground level.
On the second, third and fourth floors, mini-storage will share space with craft rooms lining two exterior walls.
On the fifth floor, craft space would face a courtyard with several walkways leading to a pond with a fountain. There also is a circular seating area off one of the walkways.
Sixth and seventh floors are all craft rooms.
In total, there will be about 59,500 square feet of warehouse and 65,300 square feet of craft space.
Exterior building elements will be metal siding and CMU.
The city values construction at $17.7 million.
On the documents, the project is called the second phase of Rainier Storage & Work Lofts. The former brewery currently has work lofts, live-work lofts, commercial space, glass blowing facilities, a gallery and mini-storage.
Patrick Reilly is named as the property owner for the project. A call to Reilly's phone number went through to Urban Self Storage, which runs the existing storage facility at the brewery, but was not answered.
The jobsite has signs for Anderson Construction Group and LDG Architects. Neither firm returned inquiries seeking comment.
