Project DescriptionPremiere on Pine soars 40 stories above Seattle’s theater district and Convention Center joining Fifteen Twenty-One Second Avenue as one of Seattle's tallest residential towers. We inherited this project and re-tooled it to meet the new owner's vision, increasing the number of units, removing all the private decks and designing spaces to accommodate a generous amenity program and a dramatic hotel-inspired roof-top Sky Lounge.
The project is marked by a bold design with a playful curtainwall façade composed of high-performance glass broken by a staccato rhythm of metal columns with a fragmented, stepping verticality that reaches for the sky. Rich, earthy rust, gray and bronze tones complement the vintage masonry of the adjacent 1929 Paramount Theatre.
To celebrate its location in the theater district, the base of the structure features two massive LED backlit glass art walls that will cycle through the color spectrum. This conceals the above grade parking and contributes to the liveliness of the areas. Serving all those theater goers, a premier restaurant retail location is located at the corner of 8th & Pine and runs the entire length of the Pine Street façade.
Premiere on Pine is LEED Silver certified. A host of sustainable features are incorporated into the building including a highly efficient boiler and chiller system that will supply hot and cold water to a water source heat pump in each individual apartment for heating and cooling. The Premiere on Pine will also use recycled content and locally harvested and manufactured building materials.
