Mixed-use Seattle high-rise earns LEED Gold
Seattle’s 2201 Westlake development became the city’s first mixed-use and high-rise residential project to earn LEED Gold. Located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, the newly completed 450,000-sf complex includes 300,000 sf of Class A office space, 135 luxury condominiums (known as Enso), and 25,000 sf of retail space. The project’s green features include underfloor HVAC delivery, high-performance central energy plant, water-efficient fixtures and fittings, drought-tolerant landscaping, and extensive material/construction waste recycling and salvaging. The project was developed by Vulcan Real Estate, designed by Callison, and constructed by Sellen Construction with Glumac as MEP.
