BestOn the BoardsMultifamilyCommunity - 50du/Acre ormore

Judges Statement:

This 7-story, 384-unit mixed-use project in Seattle’s burgeoning South Lake Union neighborhood. The project’s design responds to varied

contextual conditions while evoking continuity with simple expressions and proportions. Three angled “cabin-like” buildings create a concave backdrop to the adjacent

historic Cascade Park. The south wing’s sloped green roof allows natural light into the courtyard. Northwest Modernism and the landscapes of the nearby San Juan

Islands inspire the project’s regional identity. The large green roof, urban agriculture, and a dense tree-filled courtyard – accessible to both residents and the community

– support the concept of environmental retreat. Block 11 eliminates the typical mid-rise podium, which allows individual structures to touch the ground, providing

pedestrian courtyard access and connecting adjacent developments. Block 11 will be one of the most sustainable buildings of its type in the country. The innovative

Wastewater Heat Recovery (WWHR) system – the first of its kind in the U.S. – captures the heat from outgoing wastewater from dishwashers, showers, and washing

machines through a heat exchanger and preheats the incoming water for the same uses. Ductless heat pumps and energy recovery ventilators in some areas are

projected to result in more than 50% energy use reduction over the established national ASRAE baseline. The Judges agree that this “On the Boards” winner will be a

great living environment for those future urban apartment dwellers.
