Touchstone's Troy Laundry Block, finally has some renderings and they're worthy of the hype behind this 800,000-square-foot project that includes a 12-story and 13-story building. The Tetris-y design makes things fairly blocky but if they keep that warm brown color, that should help it stand out in the ever-growing South Lake Union skyline.
The complex rests between Boren and Fairview Avenues and Harrison and Thomas streets. The two buildings will be built over underground parking (1,120 stalls) and contain primarily technology office space with some retail at street-level. A pedestrian courtyard with plenty of possibilities is located in between the two structures. Additionally 4,000 square feet of retail space will be located on Thomas Street.
Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.
