Exciting news came from Google on August 14th, as Puget Sound Business Journal broke the story that the search engine giant is working with Vulcan Inc. to build a fifth office building for the company in the fast-growing South Lake Union neighborhood where it already has four in construction. The new building will stand 12 stories tall and complement the “Lakefront Blocks,” which will top 607,000 square feet of office space with apartments for rent.

The fifth building is expected to begin construction at the end of next year, with preliminary timelines placing the shell and core structure completion in summer 2021. It will add more than just office space to the area, with 23,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level and a below-grade parking structure. Vulcan said in a release that they are aiming for LEED Gold certification in sustainability, energy efficiency and air quality.

 

As Ada Healey, Vice President of Real Estate with Vulcan, Inc., tells PSBJ, “We’ve developed a great partnership over the past several years and look forward to helping Google continue to grow its business in our region.”

PSBJ notes that Google is also looking to grow their Eastside operations, as a source says the company is toying with the idea of renting space at the new mixed-use Kirkland Urban development, which is currently under construction.
