2701 EASTLAKE

Client: 2701 Eastlake, LLC
Architect: Graphite
Location: Seattle, WA

Description: Three levels of office/retail/restaurants totaling 42,670 sq. ft. and two levels of parking with 82 stalls totaling 29,400 sq. ft. The third floor has a rooftop terrace facing west towards Lake Union. The street level at Edgar has an outdoor dining area on the south side that also has views of Lake Union. The structure is post-tensioned concrete. The design review process required extensive articulation and different cladding systems including curtain wall, storefront, architectural precast and site cast concrete, architectural metal panels, and chiseled stone panels. Significant challenges include contaminated soils, groundwater, shoring, working hour restrictions, and extensive traffic control for cars, bikes and pedestrians.
"2701 Eastlake required a high level of construction expertise and collaboration to execute the complex detailing and coordination inherent in this iconic Class A office building. Foushée worked effectively to navigate multiple owner change requests throughout construction, managed vendors and trades in challenging market conditions, and kept an eye on quality while offering options for cost effectiveness. Foushée's open communication style allowed for successful resolutions to several challenges and their commitment to owner satisfaction was key to the success of this project."
