Studio216 is thrilled to be featured on the front page of the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce today. Our team worked closely with Skanska and Lisa Pickard to achieve this image.
From the Daily Journal of Commerce - Skanska USA Commercial Development is breaking ground this morning on its first project in Seattle: Stone34, which will house the new headquarters for Brooks Sports.
The 129,000-square-foot building slated for 3400 Stone Way will cost $51 million and be self-financed by Skanska. When finished in spring 2014, it will have 19,000 square feet of ground-level retail topped by four levels of office.
Brooks will occupy all of the building’s 106,000 square feet of office space. Brooks also will operate its first retail concept store in 9,000 square feet on the ground level, leaving about 10,000 square feet of retail available adjacent to the Burke-Gilman Trail.
Stone34 is pre-certified LEED platinum and part of the city’s Living Building Pilot Program. It will use 75 percent less energy and water than typical buildings through hydronic heating and cooling systems, stormwater capture and reuse, and a layout that increases day light and reduces summer heat loads.
Tenants will be encouraged to reduce their energy impacts through real-time monitoring and displays of their energy use.
A 216-stall underground garage will have plug-in stations for electric cars. There will be more than 8,500 square feet of outdoor pedestrian area above that includes edible landscaping.
Skanska USA Building is the general contractor. The design team is LMN, architect; Swift & Co., landscape architect; WSP Flack + Kurtz, MEP engineer; KPFF Consulting Engineers, civil engineer; and DCI Engineers, structural engineer. Anne Marie Koehler at CBRE is handling retail leasing.
