In November, we heard about Onni Group's plans to build four residential towers that contain 2 million square feet of residential space right across the street from Amazon's HQ in South Lake Union. Now we've got a bit more detail regarding what's planned for the massive lot that includes the former home of the Seattle Times.
Plans submitted to the city for 1120 John St. call for one 24-story building with 860 residential units, 22K square-feet of ground-level retail and 850 below-grade parking spots. All buildings except the Seattle Times Building, which is designated a historic landmark, will be demolished.
Meanwhile at 1120 Denny Way, plans call for a 40-story, 1,085 residential unit building with 22K square-feet of ground-level retail and 850 below grade parking spots. All existing buildings on the property will be demolished.
No word on what the other two planned towers on the property will look like just yet. Omni will meet with the design review board on May 7 to discuss the plans.
