Balancing client objectives with community interest, MG2's design team created a modern high-rise that represents a gateway to downtown Seattle.


Stanford Hotels worked with MG2 to design a 54-story mixed-use hotel and residential tower on a prominent corner in downtown Seattle. Surrounded by an eclectic mix of buildings, varying greatly in age and architectural styles, the unique site location forced MG2 to thoroughly examine and validate design decisions from multiple perspectives. The MG2 team introduced horizontal and vertical rhythms to the façade, helping weave the luxurious building into the contextual fabric of the neighborhood.

In addition to the 209 hotel rooms and 236 residential units, the high-rise offers over 10,000 SF of hotel amenities and restaurants, including a lively rooftop bar overlooking the Puget Sound. To activate the pedestrian experience, 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. The tower is designed to achieve a minimum LEED Silver certified.
