Last we left the old Federal Reserve Building at 1015 Second Ave in downtown Seattle, Martin Selig Real Estate had unveiled plans to drop a 29-story tower right on top of the four-story structure. Now Selig is back at it and they want to go bigger. They've updated its plan and added 12 stories of housing to the office tower originally-proposed. The complex would now be a 664-foot curved structure with 48 total stories broken up into 540,000 sf. of office space across 32 levels, 192 residential units across 12 levels and 20,000 sf. of public space. There would also be five levels of below-grade parking for 250 spots. Perkins+Will is the architect, Lease Crutcher Lewis is the general contractor and KPFF Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer. The new and improved plans will go before the design review board on December 15. No word on how many more stories Selig might add between now and then.
