Located where Belltown and Uptown Seattle merge, just steps from the iconic Space Needle, Seattle Center, and Olympic Sculpture Park, Gallery is an innovative high-rise. At 233 units and 13 stories, the design team reallocated the typical zoning areas to allow more development area to be pushed higher in the building while creating a more pleasant pedestrian experience at the street level with wider sidewalks and a more generous landscape palette. This accomplished a goal of higher revenues while creating a better contributing member of the neighborhood. The design concept emulates masonry buildings of Belltown and the Waterfront while introducing a modern palette that stitches the two brick masses together. The southern brick mass was pushed northward to open views to the Space Needle while an occupiable bay-window room allows spectacular views of Elliot Bay and Mount Rainier.
