Images: Amazon’s tower plan, Seattle’s new skyline

Here are renderings of the three towers and campus that Amazon wants to build in downtown Seattle, giving the company its first company-owned headquarters facility.

These images are renderings submitted to the city for design review yesterday.

The submission also lists special consideration the company’s seeking to deviate from city design codes, but I’ll bet the city will be fairly compliant given the rare prospect of a leading tech company creating a new downtown headquarters. Especially if there are plenty of bike racks.

The images, starting with a rendering of how the towers (shown in green) will change Seattle’s skyline (you can click to enlarge the images):

Just for fun, here’s a phonecam shot of the latest tower in Amazon’s current, leased campus in South Lake Union – rising on a former Seattle Times parking lot:
