Kilroy Realty has big plans for 333 Dexter Ave. N. in South Lake Union and renderings from The Miller Hull Partnership reveal a rather funky design for their two-tower complex. Plans call for two 12-story towers above 15,000 sf. of ground-floor retail and underground parking for 700 vehicles and storage for 286 bicycles. All-told, the complex will include approximately 582,000 sf. of office space. The building designs boast one north building with a relatively straight-forward design and a south building with jagged edges buttressed by diagonal columns to the ground. In-between the two, an open-air pedestrian plaza underneath a walkway connecting the two. The showcase piece will be a 20-by-50-foot art wall facing Harrison Street featuring a mural inspired by the idea of a “compelling cityscape that is both a gritty look at urban life and visual gateway to Seattle.” Designs go before the design review board on January 6 for recommendation.
