Situated on the south shore of Lake Washington, Southport is a new mixed-use urban development of 17.1 acres of waterfront property and includes three, 9-story buildings consisting of 712,752 SF of Class "A" office space with an attached parking garage providing 2,100 parking spaces. The office campus features large, efficient floor plates ranging from 18,000 to 36,900 RSF. Each building has spacious, light and airy corporate common spaces and internal building connection within the first floor and podium roof terraces between buildings.

The offices will join the 383 units of luxury, multi-family housing completed in 2008 and the award winning 347-room Hyatt Regency Lake Washington. Upon completion, the Southport campus will feature additional first floor retail space.

 

In addition to the on-site amenities, the campus is located only 8 miles from SeaTac and half -mile from 405 and office tenants will be able to take advantage of the countless sporting and recreational opportunities in the neighboring 57-acre Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. The park offers walking trails, tennis and volleyball courts, boat launches and fishing docks, along with a trail lined bird sanctuary. Southport is within walking distance to 32 restaurants and only one-tenth of a mile to The Landing, which is comprised of over 600,000 square feet of entertainment, restaurants, and service and retail space occupied by regional and national tenants. In addition to the commercial aspect, The Landing is a community to over 880 apartment homes.

Event Summary

Has Seattle CRE reached its peak? Not if developers such as Onni Group and Urban Visions have anything to say about it? The former, once interested in residential towers at the site of the Seattle Times Building have no filed paperwork and proposed office towers on the site while the latter, led by Greg Smith, recently received permit approval for their 1,200,000 million square foot office project adjacent to Pioneer Square and Chinatown. On the tenant front, while it’s true that no name in Seattle is bigger than Amazon (see their Sphere Complex) – which remains the case despite the HQ2 dust having settled – other notable brands from Seattle’s decorated tech history are making waves with office space updates. In Bellevue, T-Mobile is proceeding with their office expansion and renovation while to the west on the waterfront, Expedia’s new HQ (which will house 5,000 employees) continues to take shape. Join Bisnow as we bring together the region’s notable tenants, investors, and developers to discuss the current state of office investment and development across Seattle and the future of the office itself. For more on this event and for questions, comments, or press inquiries contact Event Producer Matt Seukunian (matt.seukunian@bisnow.com).

1. What impact does tech migration (Amazon into Bellevue and Expedia to the Waterfront) have on neighboring businesses, developments, and residents?

2. Who are some of the notable out of market investors and developers making their name in the Seattle office space?

3. What are some of the largest office projects currently under development?

4. How do tenant demands (especially in the tech sector) vary in Seattle compared to other markets?

5. Where is Seattle in the office space cycle and what does that positioning mean for the rest of the CRE industry?
