By taking advantage of sustainable opportunities, the design team created a hotel-residential respite at the Hyatt at Olive 8 that innovatively increased development options.

After partnering to develop the Seattle Grand Hyatt, high-end developer R.C. Hedreen Company turned again to MG2 to help create the Hyatt at Olive 8 in Seattle’s Denny Triangle neighborhood. MG2 collaborated with Gluckman Mayner to create the sophisticated 39-story high-rise that capitalizes on the demand for sustainable, urban mixed-use living.

The design team took inventive measures to create Seattle’s first LEED Silver certified green hotel, from constructing an expansive green roof to incorporating 33 additional condominium units over three floors to take advantage of sustainability incentives related to building height. With high-end amenities and other features for hotel guests and condominium residents, the Hyatt at Olive 8 created a new standard for eco-luxury in Seattle.
