Walton Lofts is a Green Globe certified residential high-rise in downtown Seattle. This loft-style, 12 story tower features 136 apartment units closely integrated into a neighborhood that celebrates its green streets, a unique urban watershed and a city park dedicated to community gardening. The project’s resident amenities include an expansive roof deck and a library-themed common area that overlook the park and Elliott Bay beyond.
Executed in direct response to its environment, all roof water runoff is channeled through expressive open runnels to a system of exposed weirs in the lushly-planted edge of Vine Street, forming a critical link in the neighborhood fabric. Artist-made building parts combined with creative detailing of standard building components contribute to the “sense of place” created at Walton Lofts.
Walton Lofts was designed and produced in an integrated collaborative effort with Shoesmith Cox Architects.
The Walton Lofts was the 2016 Daily Journal of Commerce Building of the Year runner up.
