Grand Opening of Joseph Arnold Lofts

Oct 29, 2013

Today was the grand opening for Joseph Arnold Lofts, affectionately called The Joe, or JOLO.  Located just a few blocks from the waterfront and the Olympic Sculpture Park, Joseph Arnold Lofts is a 13-story multi-family apartment building with great views and even better amenities. Residential units are designed to feel like lofts, with wide open floor plans and bedroom walls that don’t quite reach the ceiling.

With 132 apartment units, JOLO is the first Green Globe certified residential high-rise in downtown Seattle – recently receiving three out of four green globes for sustainable design elements. Some of the other interesting features of the building and our work on it include:

  • Maximizes sites value and establishes its own identify within the neighborhood with pre-cast concrete on the exterior
  • Extensive green roof with amenity spaces up high to take advantage of surrounding views
  • Use of a variable refrigerant HVAC system to minimize energy use
  • Water and energy conversation measures
  • First architects to have to respond to changes in the fire code and how they apply to elevators
  • Modular approach to kitchen and bathroom design, which provides for flexibility and differentiation between unit types
  • Straight-forward industrial aesthetic of the building, which creates exposed systems and enhanced access for maintenance
  • Phase permitting to allow for early start of excavation
