7th Avenue NE Studios
CLIENT: Triad Capital Partners
UNITS: 75 Studio Apartments
CONSTRUCTION VALUE: $4.1 million
EXPECTED COMPLETION: Summer 2013
The 7th Avenue NE Studios will provide affordable studio living for University of Washington students and young professionals in the University District. The project meets Built Green 4 Star requirements enabling it to take advantage of Floor Area Ratio bonuses permitted in the LR3 Zone.
The architecture is defined by the semi-industrial urban design that faces 7th Avenue NE. The façade is made up of a combination of simple projecting elements and contemporary custom-colored metal siding. The saw-tooth roof form, typical of industrial architecture, ties in with the rhythm of the studios and the use of modular construction.
