BB6, also known as 2326 6th Avenue Towers, is a mixed- use development comprising two 480-foot towers atop a seven-level podium and seven levels of below-grade parking. Located in the heart of Denny Triangle neighbrohood near Amazon's global headquarters, the project will include residential apartments, extended-stay lodging, office, retail and parking. Residential amenities will include exterior rooftop gardens at the podium, and the top floor of each high-rise will include social gathering areas. 

The structure is cast-in-place cocnrete with long span two-way post-tensioned slabs. The lateral system consists of efficient eccentric shear wall core with drophead on two sides of the core, which resulted in increased spans and eliminiated interior columns. CKC incorporated stepped columns for column transitions, eliminating all transfer beams. Performance-Based Design was used for seismic design.
