ABOUT the project

This 170’ residential tower on First Hill is a joint venture with Bellwether Housing and Plymouth Housing. Located on a tight corner property, the ground level focuses on graceful lobby entries and a retail terrace. Since there are two separate sets of residents, great attention was paid to balancing different programmatic needs among 3 roof terraces.

The lower terrace incorporates tenant garden plots while using bioretention and other raised planters to ensure privacy for adjacent units. The middle terrace incorporates structured and free play space for children and families. The upper terrace provides flexible gathering space, both covered and open-sky, to allow for expanded use of the adjoining amenity space and access to the sensational open views.
