The Conco Companies, providing a range of concrete services, has poured out the three, 9-story LEED Silver mixed-use buildings at the Southport on Lake Washington Office Campus located in Renton, Washington. The Southport on Lake Washington is a major project for Renton, covering 17.1 acres of waterfront property and will include 712,752 Sq. Ft. of Class “A” office space with a total project cost of $590 million.
Designed from the beginning to support the demanding needs of leading tech companies, the energy-efficient property supports high burst networking speeds and heavy data transfer requirements. Southport’s beautiful office space boasts large, efficient floor plans that range from 18,000 to 36,900 rentable Sq. Ft. with 12’ 4” ceiling and feature 9’ window heights.
The offices are paired with a parking garage, a 4-star hotel and adjacent apartments built in 2008. The parking garage includes 695,159 gross Sq. Ft. of parking space with 2,121 structured parking spaces and the ability to expand parking to an adjacent site to meet tenants needs. The open 12-story, $180 million, 347-room 4-star Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle’s Southport provides premium accommodations for business travelers to Southport.
This project has been a monumental achievement for the Conco Northwest Division. Under the direction of Conco’s Project Superintendent Gerrit Johnson, and Project Manager Alex Gateman, the structural duration of the project lasted over 2.5 years. Southport sets the high-water mark for the longest–and largest– contract the Conco Northwest Division has completed.
Over 2.5 years, Conco NW has:
- Placed 77,400 Cu. Yds. of concrete (readymix supplied by Stoneway)
- Shipped and placed 13,700,00 lbs. of rebar (installed by RPM)
- Shipped and placed 1,450,000 lbs of post-tension cables (installed by RPM) – that’s more than 450 miles of cable.
With stunning views of Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier from multiple outdoor spaces, as well as rooftop deck, tenants can enjoy the benefits and beauty of Southport with the comfort of 20% – 30% lower lease rates than in comparable alternatives in Seattle or Bellevue, with a short commute to downtown Seattle and Eastside with quick access to I-405 and I-5 Freeways.
