We are pleased to announce that on June 30th, 2020, we closed on the purchase of a corner development site in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle. We have been working on development for more than a year so construction permits are not far behind!
Planned for the site is the five-story, 122,700 s.f. Living Stone office building which will be part of the Living Building Challenge. The project is enrolled in the LBC 4.0 Petal Certification and will include features that focus on sustainable use of Water, Energy, and Materials. The Living Building Challenge is no simple accomplishment and our pre-construction team has been working alongside the designers to create a unique project that will create a smaller footprint than a typical building. Some of the sustainable elements include mass timber construction, self-tinting view glass, rooftop solar panels, beehives, water recycling for non-potable uses, salvaged and locally sourced building materials, FSC certified wood products, sustainable landscaping and open stairs to promote office workers to stay active! The office building will also include 149 parking stalls, 139 bike stalls with commuter lounge and 7,700 of retail/commercial space.
SRM Development is co-developer on this project with Schwartz Co.
