Google’s South Lake Union campus designs up for review

The Vulcan-owned property is just part of Google’s impending campus

In March we learned that Vulcan’s South Lake Union Block 25 and Block 31 projects were going to become mixed-use buildings leased by Google as the online giant was ready to put it’s foot down right in Amazon’s backyard. Next Wednesday, Graphite Design Group will take part of those plans for that project before the design review board for recommendations.

The building up for review is the 14-story structure at 630 Boren Avenue N., between Mercer and Valley streets. The building will include 145,600 square feet of office space spread out across six stories. Above that will be an eight-story tower with 95 residences and a rooftop amenity space (because why have a roof if you’re not going to have amenities on it?). There will also be roughly 2,500 square feet of retail on the ground floor and below-ground parking for 214 vehicles.

Plans call for 145,600 square feet of office space on six stories beneath an eight-story tower with 95 residential units and a rooftop amenity space with an outdoor terrace. About 2,500 square feet of retail and underground parking for 214 vehicles are planned.

The mixture of apartments would be mostly 1-BRs and 2-BRs with a few 3-BRs on the penthouse level.

The other project sharing the block, a six-story, 187,300-square-foot office building at 609 Fairview Avenue N, has already been approved. It’s one of three parcels in Vulcan’s Lakefront Blocks development. The other two include a 14-story mixed-use building at 625 Boren Avenue N that Google will also lease space in as well as a 16-story mixed-use building at 630 Westlake Avenue N.
