To say that South Lake Union is booming would be an understatement. It appears that even more new construction buildings are on their way to the neighborhood. According to the Seattle Times, the Canadian developer, Onni Group, may build up to 2 million square feet of residential space taking up two city blocks in South Lake Union. The 4 residential buildings would be located between Boren Ave N and Fairview Ave N and from Denny Way to Thomas Street. This is basically just east of the current Seattle Times Building you see when driving along Denny Way.
The site plans for the project show that there would be 2 residential buildings per block and that both blocks would contain a central public courtyard space between the buildings. Both blocks would have retail space at ground level and there would be underground parking for the buildings as well.
No word on whether this will be condos or apartments but my guess is apartments since in their application filed with the city they mention low income housing.
View Obstruction Advisory: This project could partially impact the views of Lake Union from both the 2200 Condos (eastern part of the lake) as well as the Cosmopolitan Condos.
