Located in Seattle’s historic First Hill neighborhood, between 8th and 9th Avenues, bordered by Columbia Street to the south. It is the most densely populated neighborhood in Seattle. The area is named for the hill on which it is situated, which is the first hill encountered traveling east from downtown Seattle toward Lake Washington. It is sometimes referred to as “Pill Hill” due to the presence of three major hospitals. It is also the home of Seattle University, the largest private university in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. with an enrollment of 7,500.
The tower’s horizontal bands and warm materiality respond to First Hill’s rich building stock, which includes multi-family housing from a variety of time periods as well as architectural landmarks such as the Frye Art Museum and St. James Cathedral. The two podium levels are clad in sandy-colored masonry punctuated by metal-framed punched window openings, creating a unified, pedestrian-scale language. An entry canopy translates as an extension of the architectural detail at the base of the tower, and horizontal recesses in the façade provide relief at the ground level setback and adjacent apartment building. The transparent building lobby wraps the southwest corner from 8th Avenue to the open park space, filling the space with natural light and providing further connection to this neighborhood amenity.
