Kinects

Project Size: 550,000 square feet

Architect: Bumgardner, Seattle, Washington

Structural Engineer: Cary Kopczynski & Company, Bellevue, Washington

Contractor: Andersen Construction, Seattle, Washington

Kinects is a state-of-the-art tower located in one of Seattle's fastest growing neighborhoods. Three sides of this 41-story apartment tower tapers gently outward as the building rises. As a result, the floor plate of Level 39 is approximately 50% larger than the floor plate of Level 8, creating a larger footprint at the top of the building where rents are highest. The project won LEED Silver certification for its sustainable materials and advanced design.

Located in the Denny Triangle, the project includes 356 apartments, retail, and 4 levels of parking above grade, with 4 levels below. The top floor has a swimming pool and outdoor terrace.

The structure consists of cast-in-place concrete with two-way flat plate post-tensioned floor slabs. Through a peer review process, CKC used non-linear analysis and Performance-Based Design to develop a seismic system consisting of a single core extending from the foundation to the roof. This proved ultra-efficient, both in terms of material usage and spatial requirements.
