A Principal at Weber Thompson, Dan Foltz leads the design and planning of complex urban projects with an emphasis on high rises. He is the designer of the award winning Fifteen Twenty-One Second Avenue, the first of a generation of downtown high rises under Seattle’s new zoning code. He has since worked on projects such as 815 Pine, The Post, Viktoria, AVA, 6th and Wall, 1800 Terry, Axis and the two-building development on Capitol Hill, Pike Motorworks.

Dan is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and has over 25 years of comprehensive professional experience, both domestic and international, with an intensive design background in a wide range of project types and markets. In addition to residential, commercial and mixed-use projects, Dan has extensive experience in hospitality, science and technology related facilities, as well as master planning and urban design.

Before joining Weber Thompson in 2005, Dan worked for other notable architectural firms in the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest, including MulvannyG2 Architecture, Sienna Architecture Company, and Hansen Lind Meyer in Chicago. He also developed and maintained a successful private practice.

Outside of the office, when not listening to his eclectic range of music, Dan is highly engaged in the shaping of our city. He worked closely with the City of Seattle on their new high rise code, and continues his services through his engagement on the Downtown Seattle Association’s Smart Growth Committee, as a board member with the South Lake Union Community Council and as a member of the Seattle Central Community College Citizen’s Advisory Committee. Dan is a former member and chairman emeritus of the Queen Anne / Magnolia / South Lake Union Seattle Design Review Board, and a former member of both the Monorail Review Panel of the Seattle Design Commission and the Capitol Hill Neighborhood Planning Committee.
