Ballard Blocks I

Project details

With the construction of this new retail project at the intersection of NW 46th Street and NW 14th Avenue in Seattle, the neighborhood began its transformation into a community retail area with strong pedestrian connections.

Clark Design Group’s design consists of two adjacent buildings: a multi-level parking garage with 140,000 square foot retail use and a health club in the west building connected by a pedestrian bridge to a two-story retail building to the east. The open space between the two buildings acts as a pedestrian alley. Construction was completed in 2009.

This project achieved LEED-CS Silver Certification. Sustainable design elements include a high-efficiency HVAC system, low-VOC construction products for a cleaner interior environment, preferred parking stalls for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles, and native and drought-tolerant plant species which enable the project to avoid installation of a costly permanent irrigation system. Additionally, Tenant Improvement Sustainability Guidelines are provided to all tenants identifying opportunities for them to align their build-outs with this green building.
