Shorenstein Properties recently acquired a corner site at 235 Ninth Ave. N. in South Lake Union. Weber Thompson is designing an eight-story office building dubbed 9North for the site. That proposal will have its first design review, in a virtual meeting, on March 24.
Shorenstein will pursue LEED gold certification for the 120,000-square-foot tower. It may have a mass timber component, along with some concrete. Weber Thompson is currently planning a mostly mass timber project for Dunn Lumber, though on a smaller scale.
Weber Thompson's preferred design is dubbed “erosion.” It offsets the floors with horizontal strata and terraces.
The eighth floor would have a large roof deck and flexible work area labeled as a solarium.
Underground parking with 58 stalls on two levels would be accessed from the alley to the west. A basement bike room with showers is also planned. One ground-floor retail bay is indicated.
The corner, at Thomas Street, has 18,000 square feet. The 9North project will replace some old warehouses. Shorenstein paid $17 million for the corner in December.
The team includes land-use attorney McCullough Hill Leary and civil engineer KPFF Consulting Engineers.
