Case Study: Urban Mixed-Use

Expo Apartments

The new 'front door' of Seattle Center

Expo Apartments is located in a prime pedestrian neighborhood east of Seattle Center and directly north of Key Arena. Ground-level retail spaces will engage the heavy foot traffic along 1st Avenue North and Republican Street, while ground-level live/work units will interact with the slower paced activity along Warren Avenue. The design focuses on the relationship of private, semi-private and public open spaces throughout to further enhance the pedestrian environment.
