Manhattan energy and Seattle sensibility converge in this sleek, modern hotel/condo tower. Working with two disparate uses, the design demonstrates that they can be combined into a harmonious, expressive composition that celebrates urban living.
The tower is set back from the street above the podium, responding to the light rail tunnel below and providing open space for a lush garden terrace. This setback creates a scale element to provide visual relief from the density of a newly emerging and very densely packed neighborhood. A generously landscaped entry plaza creates a powerful sense of arrival and defines the gateway corner.
Separate and distinct entries are provided for the hotel and residences, with easy access to all of the amenities associated with a four star hotel. The residences feature ceiling heights ranging from 9.5 ft to more than 12 ft, a generous balcony or solarium and flexible floor plans.
