The mixed-use development totalling nearly 950,000 square feet is located in the Denny Triangle Neighborhood, between the established downtown Seattle core and the rapidly evolving waterside neighborhood of South Lake Union.
Two towers, 440-feet tall, with roughly 400 residential units each, are set atop a mixed-use podium including retail, co-working, residential and shared amenity spaces.
As the towers rise, the facades rotate and adjust to the ever-changing city context, while 30-foot cantilevers allow both buildings to provide unique, open air, amenity decks and authentic views of the city for residents.
Retail and restaurants open to the streets while roof terraces provide covered, green spaces throughout the vertical community, connecting the user experience with the surrounding city.
The towers introduce height into a predominantly low-rise environment, with vertical community space and viewing platforms creating new, elevated experiences within the city.
The design is environmentally and energy-conscious, using a high-performance triple-glazed wall and heat exchanger. Source by WATG.
