New construction of a 55,575 SF, 6-story structure situated at a prominent corner on 12th Avenue at the south entry to Seattle University’s business district, just blocks from the burgeoning Pike/Pine neighborhood. The Jefferson is a 55,575 SF, 6-story structure intended for workers and families at 60% or less of the median income. The building features 40 affordable one- and two-bedroom apartments spanning five floors, vibrant street level retail/commercial space, and one level of underground parking.

The project is built to the Washington State Evergreen Sustainable Development Standard and has many green features, including heat recovery ventilation units, high performing windows, a low energy elevator and an ultra-high efficiency gas system. Located within a quarter mile of seven bus lines and less than a mile from downtown Seattle, the apartments are designed to promote walking, bicycling, and transit use.

The zero lot line site provided little to no space for staging of materials, and combined with the building’s proximity to the existing power lines on the south and west elevations, required a very creative and precise approach to safe material deliveries and performance of work.
