Seattle gets a peak at Amazon’s latest plans for its downtown complex has shown plans to the City of Seattle for the next phase of its downtown high-rise campus.

The Puget Sound Business Journal reports that Amazon already has two 38-story buildings on two blocks of that campus under construction, and has asked the city to sell an alleyway to make way for a 38-story building within the third block of the proposed complex.

Amazon has also updated some of its design, in request for changes from the city that include more open space and deeper setbacks. Amazon is proposing to eliminate a retail pavilion on one block to allow for more open area, and will pull back office buildings by 10 feet from another intersection.

The online retail giant is proposing 23-story and eight-story buildings for what would be the fourth block of this campus that, when completed, would have a total of nearly 4.2 million sf of office space and parking for 4,200 cars. The fourth phase alone would have 835,200 sf of office space, 35,000 sf of retail, and underground parking for 835 cars.
