Located just blocks away from Pike Place Market, a new high-rise may soon be added to the downtown Seattle skyline. Atlanta-based developer Wood Partners has plans to build a 40-story tower at 1613 Second Avenue Avenue.
Seattle architect firm Hewitt is in charge of the project’s design. As you can see from the above rendering, the building will take advantage of location with sweeping views of Elliott Bay. Hewitt already has large footprint in the Seattle development scene with projects that include Via6 and Alto Apartments.
If approved, the mix-use structure will offer 196 residential units along with 145 underground parking spots. The plans also call for over 2,500 square feet of street-level retail space.
Shaping Seattle reveals that the project is currently prepping for what could be the final recommendation meeting on September 29th. A recommendation meeting is held during the second phase of the design review process. This meeting is the Design Review Board’s opportunity to review the architectural and urban design details that respond to the early design guidance.
