Fifth and Stewart Hotel & Residences

A lesson in perspectives

Stanford Hotels partnered with MG2 to design a 54-story mixed-use hotel and residential tower located on a prominent corner in downtown Seattle. Surrounded by an array of building types and uses, the challenging site forced MG2 to thoroughly examine and validate design decisions from multiple perspectives. The MG2 team introduced horizontal and vertical rhythms to the facade, helping weave the luxury tower into the neighborhood’s contextual fabric.

In addition to the 257 room hotel and 233 residential units, the tower offers more than 18,000 SF of hotel amenities and restaurants, including a rooftop bar overlooking the Puget Sound. To activate the street front, the main floor features 3,000 SF of retail space anchored by a sidewalk café. Directly above, four levels of artist lofts overlook the streetscape.
