Seattle Convention Center Summit Building, Washington
“The project represents a significant shift in the events industry model. The vertical convention center organization produces a seamless and engaging atmosphere for different event types. From one single large event or conference to multiple smaller simultaneous meetings, the variety of meeting, event and public spaces feel connected and integrated, offering diverse environments – formal and informal, quiet and animated, planned and spontaneous. The project also includes two mixed-use co-development towers, a 540,000 sf office tower under construction, an approximately 400-unit residential tower (in future plans), 36,000 sf of retail spaces distributed around the street frontages, and 16,000 sf of public open space. Both towers rise over podiums with street-level retail and public-facing uses located above the convention center’s below-grade loading docks.”
