Featuring stunning views of downtown, the Cascades and Puget Sound, 815 Pine will be a 42-story residential tower with street level retail, four levels of parking above grade, and five levels below. Currently in design, this 440 foot structure will be located near the Convention Center in Seattle’s urban core. 815 Pine will feature an amenity area at the roof with a garden, social area, and lap pool. The building is targeting LEED Silver.
The project presented a number of engineering challenges for CKC, one of the most significant of which was the small site and floor plate. CKC designed a core-wall seismic system using a performance based design to maximize structural efficiency and provide a high ratio of net to gross floor area.
