Four towers, 1,900 units last I heard, including a somewhat shorter block next to this one.

A fence went up a couple weeks ago, but they still appear to be a couple weeks short of a shoring permit. The block appears to be 1,179 units and about 1,100 parking spaces for the housing, plus a bit of parking for the Seattle Times who has offices in an old building next door. That's an unusually large parking ratio. It used to be more...they dropped the parking amount a bit in later design iterations (typically you MUP the worst-case scenario, then reduce parking depending on your assessment of the market).

The second block appears to be well behind the first, but they're demolishing the site, aside from the protected part of the old Times building. It'll be a huge convenience to have the extra site for construction.

My hope is the second block will start midway through the first. Like a year away maybe? The utility of the spare site will reduce once they have the below-grade and some of the lowrise stuff built. This block has shorter zoning, but they get some bonus for saving the existing park on the first block (in rendering). I think the second block is about 900 units and towers of 29 and 36 stories, or that was one version. Meanwhile the City is doing small upzones so maybe they'll use that.

Here's a giant design presentation for the first block, dating to May 2016. http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/AppDocs/G...endaID5872.pdf

This is a large central city parking lot that will not be missed, and so happy that the small park with stand of mature trees will be saved.

More pictures of the site and surroundings. This really gives the feeling that the historic downtown/CBD is spreading to South Lake Union.

This is the first of what could be a few projects in the 1000+ unit category on sites of one or two acres (this one is two). Others include the former Antioch site, 1200 Stewart, and 701 4th. The other Onni block will get close with 900 or so units though it's more like 2.5 acres. Actually 701 4th would be 2/3 of an acre.

Our densest jobs tend to be more like 400 units on 1/3 acre. But wow I love the density these big jobs bring.
