Way back when, Urban Visions' planned 1.2 million-square-foot office and retail complex at 1000 and 1001 Sixth Avenue S went by the name 'Stadium East.' But last year they shortened the title to simply "S." KING 5 got a closer look at new renderings for the project, which hopes to make this undeveloped seven-acre plot of land into an urban campus where more than 5,000 people can work.
The name "S" mostly works as the seven buildings kinda-sorta make an S if you squint and convince yourself. The project is expected to cost around $750 million but with a location next door to light rail and close to the Stadium District and Downtown Seattle, Urban Visions thinks it will attract quite a few suitors.
Water is a big part of the design for the complex. In between the office buildings and retail spots, the complex will be dotted with cisterns, open ponds and man-made wetlands, all meant to reuse and recycle rain water.
According to plans submitted to the city for an April 26 recommendation meeting, there will also be parking for 464 vehicles below grade and 71 bicycles above grade. The entire project is expected to take three years to complete following design board approval.
