Fremont North Shore is a commercial building that takes advantage of its assets. Jaw dropping views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle are maximized with floor to ceiling glass and a large rooftop terrace. A dramatic two story mews connects the building and shoreline beyond with the adjacent Burke-Gilman Trail, providing walkers and bikers direct access, along with extensive in-building bicycle parking and showers.
Built on what was a previously underdeveloped link between Gas Works Park and the Fremont neighborhood, this three story, minimalist building strengthens those geographic connections and improves the pedestrian experience on both sides of the building through landscape and safety improvements to the bike trail, and by adding sidewalks, angled parking and landscaping to Northlake Way North streetscape.
Sustainable strategies are found throughout the building, with quality daylighting, and operable windows offering tenants fresh air. An extensive storm water mitigation strategy is found top to bottom, from a full coverage green roof to lushly planted biofiltration planters along the sidewalk.
