Located near Seattle’s historical Gas Works Park and directly adjacent to the Burke-Gilman Trail, this 3-story, 57,000 GSF commercial office building will enhance the neighborhood with a contextually appropriate design and pedestrian and cyclist-friendly features.
Electrochromatic glass on the south façade of the building will offer an efficient solution to solar gain and glare, a challenge due to the long and narrow, east-west orientation of the site which creates a long, south-facing façade. The benefit, however, is that the site provides excellent daylighting opportunities, resulting in a work environment flooded with natural daylight for much of the work day. Operable windows will offer the ability for tenants to easily maintain control of their working environment during warmer months. Additionally, a rooftop patio will offer sprawling views of Lake Union.
Outside the building, pedestrians will experience the full scope of the prime, waterfront site by using a pass through that connects the north and south sides of the building joining N Northlake Way to the Burke-Gilman Trail. The angled walls of this pass through splay open to views of the city and create a landscaped gathering area with twinkling overhead lighting elements and al-fresco dining opportunities. Retail tenants occupying 7,000 sf of the ground floor will have the ability o expand to the pass through and during summer months, taking full advantage of Seattle’s temperate climate.
