VIBRANT CITIES: NIWA
The Niwa Apartment building is located on 1st Ave, a
few blocks away from the Roystone site. The brand and concept for this project is derived from the Japanese word for garden. Part of articulating that concept has been the development of a mid-block pass-through. The project will bring gardens, pedestrians and retail activity to the block and create a pass, connecting the Seattle center and Key Arena with Dick’s restaurant and other pedestrian attractions along Queen Anne Avenue. Roof top gardens and Green wall elements further articulate this concept.
This project will pursue LEED Gold Certification.
