NEW: More views of Amazon’s Seattle tower plans

New renderings of Amazon.com’s huge headquarters campus plan were made available today — without the big “DRAFT” labels on the batch that appeared last week.

The project was reviewed last night by Seattle’s design commission, which is reviewing how the three towers will fit into the cityscape.

The renderings show additional views of the public spaces that will dramatically transform what’s now mostly a collection of parking lots and a car dealer.

The buildings would be the first headquarters buildings owned by Amazon, which now leases space developed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in South Lake Union.

Amazon’s own buildings would be on the north edge of downtown between Westlake Avenue and Blanchard Street and Sixth and Eighth avenues.

In their quest to receive city approval for the project, Amazon and architects NBBJ included plenty of bicycles and green spaces in the images, plus a public dog park shown below.

A sample of the new renderings, the first of which I believe is looking from 8th Avenue, between Blanchard and Lenora:

The proposed public dog park on the site is shown here:

Here’s another from the proposal, identifying the buildings and uses; the names on the buildings are intended to describe the feel NBBJ is trying to create with the open space:
