NEW: Amazon’s amazing new Seattle HQ buildings

New images of Amazon’s proposed Seattle towers finally show what the three towers may look like and how they’ll change the feel of the city’s downtown.

They’re part of a land-use submission to the city, which is holding another design review of the project next Tuesday.

This submission includes realistic renderings – beyond the blocky architectural models released earlier.

Amazon and its architects, NBBJ, are also emphasizing open space and landscaping around the buildings. They’re also showing uses in the complex such as a large meeting hall.

Two structures are designated as “incubator” spaces, suggesting they’ll be used by Amazon to develop new products or perhaps be used to work with partner companies.

The “draft” stamp came with submittal. That, or they’ll also have a pub here.

Behold, the largest urban headquarters proposed for a modern tech company:
