This study for a 490,000 sf tower in a prominent location in Seattle, Washington, is intended as an iconic intervention into a part of the city where development of this type has not occurred in many years. As a project for an established NYC developer, it represents a new segue into the market with residential, hospitality and retail programming to help anchor an important urban corner and create a new “place” in the city for upscale urban living and a destination for the sophisticated traveler.

Establishing an architectural theme for each respective element, residential, hospitality and retail was important in establishing a dialogue to create hierarchy and an understanding of the project’s individual elements as discrete entities, juxtaposed with its complex urban context and dizzying scales.
