Paul Allen's Vulcan Real Estate has filed preliminary paperwork with city planners for a four-story, 50,000-square-foot office building near Seattle Center.

Vulcan is considering several possibilities for the proposed building, at Sixth Avenue North and John Street, spokeswoman Lori Mason Curran said — including relocating the administrative offices of Allen's nearby Experience Music Project there.

Those offices now are in a building two blocks to the north that's in the path of the north portal to the planned Highway 99 tunnel, she said.

To build its proposed building, Vulcan would have to tear down a 59-year-old office building that has been the Seattle Housing Authority's headquarters for years. The Authority sold the property to Vulcan this summer for $7.5 million, according to county records.

Spokeswoman Virginia Felton said the Authority has leased 60,000 square feet at developer Martin Selig's 190 Queen Anne Ave. N. building, and will move there in March.

Money from sale of its former headquarters went to pay down debt, she said, and the Housing Authority plans to use proceeds from an office building in Ballard that also is for sale for the same purpose.

The city's Queen Anne/Magnolia Design Review Board, an advisory group, is scheduled to consider Vulcan's proposed building Dec. 7.
