Conco Helps Bring THE CONFIDENTIAL To Belltown
Conco is currently working on THE CONFIDENTIAL: a 29 story, cast in place tower in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. Partnering with Exxel Pacific as the General Contractor, Conco is helping to bring this mixed-use building to completion by providing concrete pumping and placing, shotcrete and reinforcing. With over 22,000 CY of concrete planned to be poured, we anticipate topping out the tower in November of 2023. This project will demand over 4 million pounds of rebar that we will fabricate at our state-of-the-art rebar facility in Rochester, WA. In the end, THE CONFIDENTIAL will contain 375,000 square feet of deck and we are thankful to RPM for their support on the rebar installation and Cadman for their readymix supply.
As noted by Superintendent Bill Lessard, “This crew came off of what could be called a mega project at Building X (a Facebook project) so it’s kind of nice to get back to the basics of a rinse and repeat tower while they’re still firing on all cylinders. It’s a great crew, the core of which have been together 8 years. It’s always a privilege and a pleasure to be charged with such a competent crew who work so well together”. This is the third tower project for Bill with Conco, and the whole team benefits from his expertise.

THE CONFIDENTIAL, inspired by the work-from-home impacts of the pandemic, will feature larger units that have dedicated workspaces. Most units will also have a balcony for outside space. This unique approach will result in less occupants of the building and the hope is that it will encourage a sense of community amongst the residents. Developed by Security Properties, this project will contain four levels of below-grade parking in addition to the 29 levels of mixed use above; including commercial/retail, additional parking, office, residential and amenity levels. This building is sure to be a fantastic addition to the Belltown neighborhood and Conco looks forward to this next project with Exxel Pacific!
