The 27-story tower in the heart of the University District encourages connectivity with two cut-outs, common outdoor areas – social greenways – in the vertically stacked building. The design plays off the rational and romantic cues of the neighborhood, where the rational street grid intersects with romantic topography and natural vistas.
The University District is a neighborhood in flux. Exploring the pre-development topography of the area revealed unchanging natural aspects that became design influences.

These indelible, timeless markers served as a guide for the organization and inspiration for the concepts.
