DESCRIPTION

Offering high-end hotel, condominium and office space, as well as deluxe retail space at ground level, developers of the 1.2 million-square-foot building at 1913 5th Avenue.  Above the glass-walled base, containing a large atrium, would rise the northern tower, nicknamed Pagoda. It would contain nine floors of hotel space, with 22 floors of condos above that.  Pagoda would be architecturally distinctive on its exterior to distinguish it from the all-residential south tower, nicknamed Heron. Separated from Pagoda by 70 feet, Heron would house 32 stories of condos.  Each sleek, angular tower would be topped by a V-shaped roof over a 50-foot-high combined open-air arboretum, roof garden and enclosed recreation space. Photovoltaic cells and microturbines would generate about 7 percent of the building’s electricity, and cisterns collecting rain would partly offset water use.

New Construction Update: Leona in Queen Anne

Erica Clibborn from Williams Marketing invited us to get a sneak peak of a new project on Queen Anne Avenue yesterday. The building consists of 13 updated historic homes, 3 new townhomes, and 2 new penthouses. The developer, Maria Barrientos, has an impressive portfolio of historic preservation projects including the 5th Avenue Theater, Eagle Auditorium, Union Station, Paramount Theater, Stadium Lofts, and more. Homes in the historic structure will receive a tax break, but the exact amount is not yet known. Overall, the homes are incredibly spacious, and very few units are the same.

Although these homes are currently under construction, Erica has allowed us to give private showings to anyone interested in seeing these before they hit the market. Click here to arrange a time and day that works best for you.

Pagoda and Heron Twin Towers

heron and pagoda towersAlec Carlin with Hummingbird Advisors of Seattle informed us that last nights design review meeting with the Department of Planning and Development went well and is moving to the next stage. Mr. Carlin said concerns were addressed by Escala and that he’s interested in working with them on the project. In the meantime, DPD and Carlin will be moving towards the Master Use Permit (MUP) and recommendation process.

If you’ve yet to hear about the new project, preliminary plans for the 45-story twin tower, high-end hotel, condo, office and deluxe retail development will be located at 1913 5th Avenue (between Escala and Westin Hotel). Architect Ishmael Leyva from New York has been chosen for design to bring a new edge to Seattle. Ishmael was also 1 of 5 architects who designed the Time Warner Center in NY which has a center atrium similar to plans for the new Seattle project that will separate the two towers.

The Pagoda Tower (northern) is planned to have a distinct difference with 9-floors of hotel rooms including hotel ballrooms, meeting rooms, pool and spa.

The Heron Tower (southern) is planned to be all condos. Both 550′ towers are planned to be topped with an arboretum, roof garden and recreation facilities.

Completion is expected to be in 2011 and Alec feels that the market will support more condos at that time. We’ll all be able to make a better guess at the projects success when we hear more about estimated prices (which have yet to be determined).

DESCRIPTION

The Newmark Tower is one of the closest residential locations to Pike Place Market, which is also only two blocks away from downtown’s retail core. Originally J.C. Penny’s and the world’s largest department store, the building was torn down in 1989. The property was then purchased by Intrawest and architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill built the 24-story apartment tower with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.. The tower was later converted to office and residential spaces for sale in 1993 by HAL Real Estate Investments, Intracorp and Callison Architecture. The 90,000 square feet of office space is currently leased to the building’s neighbor, WAMU. Homes are comprised of studios, 1-bedrooms and 2-bedrooms. Floorplans range from 550 to 1,100 square feet and amenities include a 24-hour concierge, indoor pool and outdoor terrace. Some units have decks that connect the living room to the bedroom. Many homes also offer city and/or sound views, although many views have been obstructed by the new Four Seasons to the west and Fifteen Twenty-One tower to the north.
