Amazon is planning to lease the entirety of Kilroy Realty’s 333 Dexter office complex in South Lake Union. Although the deal has not been finalized, Amazon and Kilroy Realty have reached an agreement on terms for 333 Dexter, two 12-story office buildings. They are looking to complete the contract by the end of the year.

Located on the former site of KING 5’s broadcast studio, the $370 million project will total 645,000 square feet when completed. Scheduled to open mid-2019, 333 Dexter will feature the city’s largest new construction floor plates with three 62,000 square foot “super floors” on floors 2 through 4. The remaining floor plates will measure about 27,000 square feet each.

The full-block site includes 19,000 square feet of public space and a mid-block connection allowing pedestrians to cross between the towers. In addition to public space, there will also be about 24,000 square feet of private terraces including a large fifth floor private deck. Among the campus’s amenities will be “the largest bike lounge in the city” featuring 327 bike racks, 128 lockers, 1 fix-it station and 12 showers. The complex will also have 15,000 square feet of retail and 5 levels of below grade parking for 830 vehicles.

This will be Los Angeles-based Kilroy Realty’s first development in the Northwest. Their 333 Dexter team includes Miller Hull, architect; San Francisco-based Swinerton Builders, general contractor; and Hewitt, landscape architect. DPA Fine Art Consulting of Malibu, California will help Kilroy commission a local artist to do a mural for the complex.

This has been a very busy third and fourth quarter for Amazon. They recently leased 475,000 square feet at 300 Pine in addition to the announcement of a 722,000 square foot lease at the upcoming Rainier Square development.
