Amazon wants to build a new headquarters in downtown Seattle and it could change the city's skyline.
Tuesday evening, Amazon will present plans to Seattle's Design Review Board that propose six new buildings clustered around 7th Avenue, Westlake and Lenora Street.
The plans would more than double Amazon's footprint in Seattle, with it's current home in South Lake Union about 10 blocks north of the proposed site. Included in the buildings would be three towers, as high as 37 stories, visible when looking at the waterfront from across Elliott Bay.
The campus would be large enough for about 12,000 employees, with underground parking for about 3,000, and a meeting space that could hold 2,000.
One of the city's major concerns is traffic. Amazon would be required to conduct a traffic study before anything is built.
Amazon executives hope to have permits in place by the end of the year.
