ZGF designed the 38-story, 1,200,000 SF commercial office building with retail and below grade parking. The tower maximizes the size and efficiency of the individual floor plates and creates an architectural expression distinguishable from its taller neighbors in Seattle’s financial district cantilevering over the adjacent historic YMCA. The design is sensitive to appropriate scaling and massing, introducing design features that improve the quality of the project from a civic and marketplace perspective, with minimal impact on the surrounding buildings. The building plan takes advantage of the site’s steep slope by providing through-block connections in both north-south and east-west directions featuring a variety of retail options and amenities, with major building lobbies located on each street bordering the site. The building is LEED Platinum®.
