Ascending the grand steps to the entry lobby leads to the amenity plaza, where residents can gather around a fire pit on a raised plaza. The art wall adjacent to the leasing office in the lobby evokes a welcome feeling, steps beyond are the community lounge and fitness center.
The City’s space requirements – public, private, building separation – was achieved by designing semi-private courtyards along the street to break-up the building façade giving the building the appearance of three structures, instead of one. Connecting courtyards to the sidewalks provides greater visual depth. Balconies, interior courtyards, and patio spaces offer retreats for solitude or social gatherings.
Appealing to a younger demographic who appreciate contemporary and industrial design, the residential units feature big windows, stainless steel appliances, polished concrete, wood or modern carpet floor coverings, and generous walk-in closets. A one-of-a-kind corner loft unit features 25’ ceilings with oversized floor to ceiling windows, providing an abundance of natural light. Plenty of bike storage is available to residents in this pet-friendly community.
This project is easily accessible to freeways, buses and the Seattle/Bellevue metropolis. It is also conveniently located within walking distance to downtown, is blocks from the University of Washington-Bothell and Cascadia Community College, and, for recreation enthusiasts, is steps away from the Burke-Gilman Trail.
