Jim O’Hanlon, a VP at Touchstone, the developer of the 28-story building in Seattle’s Denny Triangle, declined to comment. Amazon officials were not available.
Tim Foster of Kidder Mathews said he heard that Amazon is leasing West 8th’s remaining space. Other news sources, including GeekWire, a news website that first reported the rumored deal, quoted other brokers saying the same thing.
Of the 500,000 square feet in West 8th, 320,000 square feet are available for lease. Stuart Williams and David Abbott of Pacific Real Estate Partners are marketing the space. Williams said last month that he expected the building to be leased up in 12 to 18 months. Williams and Abbott were not available yesterday.
West 8th is near Amazon’s new South Lake Union headquarters and next to the 1918 Eighth Ave. tower, where Amazon leased 460,000 square feet this spring.
