Update 8/21/15: Urban Union is no longer available. Amazon has confirmed they will be leasing the building.

The Kinzer team recently toured some of the new developments that are making Fairview Avenue a corridor for future retail and commercial office, connecting South Lake Union and the Mercer Street Exit to Denny Way. What did they love about these projects?

Urban Union Lobby

Urban Union Lobby

Schnitzer West’s Urban Union

  • The project will have some of this developer’s key features including a multi-story lobby, “third-place” spaces, generous building amenities (fitness, conference, etc.), and parking.
  • We were excited to see some of the new artistic touches such as a reclaimed wood sculpture that wraps around the walls of the lobby, and its cool “blue cube” entrance.
  • This building will appeal to tenants of all sizes with its large 27,000 SF floor plates, rooftop conference and hospitality center, and a deck to take in the Lake Union views.

Skanska’s 400 Fairview

  • Love the Market Hall concept and feel that it brings a touch of Europe to Seattle!
  • Looking forward to checking out the specialty vendors that Skanska has lined up.
  • Rooftop dining with outdoor patio and views north to Lake Union – sure to be a new hot spot!
  • The unique exterior design is great in that it’s not a typical gray box, which seems to be prevalent here in Seattle.
