In association with NBBJ, Amazon elevates the Seattle Denny Triangle with a cultural and corporate overhaul
Seattle's Denny Triangle is about to get an eye-catching upgrade as Amazon plans its exciting new corporate space, retail, and public amenities, in collaboration with NBBJ architects.
The design sports three impressive 38-story high-rise office towers, two mid-rise office buildings and a multipurpose meeting centre seating 1,800 people.
With a goal to reflect Amazon's community ethos, the area has been created with urban design principles in mind, giving way to elements such as ground level activity and different building styles. Other facilities include a dog park and two-way cycle track on 7th avenue and retail stores on nearby streets to create a bubble of activity.
Furthermore, a tower curtain wall system that screens rooftop mechanical equipment will be included for the public's benefit, while operable windows at regular intervals along the office blocks of the high- and mid-rise buildings have been implemented.
The project is currently underway, with a basis for the domes forming into what will surely become a striking feature in the Seattle urban environment. Innovative practice NBBJ are said to be working closely with Amazon and Seattle City throughout the project.
