Internet Retailer’s Planned or Occupied Space in Seattle Now Tops 9 Million Square Feet
Amazon.com is adding even further to its already rapidly-growing office presence in Seattle, leasing all 11 floors of Touchstone Corp.’s Tilt49 building under construction in the Denny Triangle neighborhood.
The 290,673 square feet taken by Amazon in the nearly completed 307,296-square-foot building at 1812 Boren Ave. is the largest lease of the year so far in Seattle. The building is slated for completion in June and Amazon plans to move in early next year.
The mixed-use site also includes AMLI Arc, a 393-unit, 41-story luxury apartment tower also slated to open this year.
Colliers International senior vice presidents Greg Inglin and Laura Ford represented the developer in the lease, which is scheduled to commence in August. ZGF Cotter Architects, Inc. designed the building at Boren Avenue and Stewart Street, which began construction in 2015.
Amazon, the city’s largest private tenant, occupies or is scheduled to occupy more than 9 million square feet of office space in the Seattle/Puget Sound market, mostly in the Seattle CBD, according to CoStar information. The internet commerce firm’s 521-foot-tall, 1.48 million-square-foot Amazon Tower II at 2101 7th Ave. was completed in November.
