he re:Invent building, formerly known as Block 20, is the third high-rise office tower completed by Sellen at Amazon’s Rufus 2.0 campus in the Denny Regrade area. Sized at just over 1.5 million square feet, re:Invent and its two, 37-story siblings — Doppler and Day One — have reshaped the Seattle skyline and its downtown office landscape. After three years of hard work, planning and dedication to ensure the success of the project, the team completed re:Invent in October 2019. Similar to Day One and Doppler, the re:Invent tower was designed by NBBJ and stands 37 stories tall, with six stories of underground parking, as well as more than 1 million square feet of office, retail and meeting space and an adjacent mid-rise tower. Levels two through four are dedicated to the Center of Energy, which contains multiple meeting rooms, coffee bars, interactive breakout spaces and two roof decks for employees. At the ground level, the plaza includes several unique art installations and an intricate water feature. The remaining lower level spaces are filled with retail tenants, food services, a coffee shop and a child care center.
