Standing 26 stories above grade, it incorporates one of the deepest subsurface excavations in the history of Seattle’s high-rise developments to date, reaching a depth of eight levels, approximately 90 feet below grade. The structural frame consists of a ductile moment-resisting concrete center core, with a post-tensioned two-way concrete slab system.
