PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
Targeting LEED-H SILVER

Located in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, Olive Way Apartments provides additional housing near a new light rail station slated to open in 2016. Addressing concerns of local residents, the design conserves the SEPA view corridors, and relates to the quiet nature of the residential street with a set-in courtyard and refined landscaping details. Embracing its urban locale by offering street level retail and restaurant space adjacent to the arterial, the design incorporates modern building materials and finishes including a brick façade reminiscent of historic residential buildings in the area. By optimizing the floor area ratio and allowable height limit this project maximizes the development potential of the site, while including a common rooftop amenity deck and green space.
