Mack Urban released new images of the 43-story apartment tower it is planning at 1001 John St. in South Lake Union.
The 400-foot tower would have 404 apartments, about 1,200 square feet of retail and 300 parking spaces.
A hillclimb is planned to help people navigate the 53-foot grade change between John Street and Terry Avenue North.
CollinsWoerman is the architect and Lease Crutcher Lewis is the general contractor. Coughlin Porter Lundeen, Hewitt and DCI Engineers are also on the team.
A Mack Urban representative said construction could begin in the second half of next year.
A design review recommendation meeting is set for 8 p.m. May 4 at Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W.
Development is booming on the blocks surrounding Mack Urban's site. Onni Group, Vulcan Real Estate and Holland Partner Group are planning or constructing several high-rise residential towers nearby.
Mack Urban shares the John Street block with another project at 121 Boren Ave. Originally H5 Capital of Beverly Hills, California, proposed two 42-story towers with a total of 840 units on the Boren Avenue site. That project has been scaled back to a single 41-story tower with 421 units, according to Seattle permit documents.
A design review recommendation meeting for the Boren Avenue project is set for 6:30 p.m. June 1 at Queen Anne Community Center.
An H5 representative did not return a request for comment about the changes.
Wendy Shark of the city's Department of Construction and Inspections said both Mack Urban and H5 are asking for departures from requirements that multiple towers on the same block be separated by 60 feet.
