The Kinects Tower Project
The Conco Companies bring vast concrete services experience to the Kinects Tower, a new mixed-use 41-story high-rise under construction in the Denny Triangle area of Seattle, WA. The project is designed by Bumgardner, a Seattle based architectural firm and developed by Security Properties. Once complete, the 500,000 sq. ft. high-rise tower will consist of 356 multi-family units varying from studios to luxury penthouse suites located on the top two floors as well as 4,658 sq. ft. of retail space on the ground level. The completion is scheduled for 2017.
Conco will be constructing four levels of below grade parking and five levels above to provide the building with 316 parking stalls. Working 16 hours straight, we recently completed the 6,000 cubic yard concrete mat pour. Due to our detailed pre-planning and highly experienced management, the pour was a very routine event, which was exactly the result we wanted.
Furthermore, we are proud to report that we received positive feedback from the City of Seattle’s DOT. They have told us this was the best-coordinated and smoothest run mat pour that they can remember. During the course of the project, Conco will place 30,470 cubic yards of concrete, 3,106 tons of rebar and 671,500 ft. of PT cable.
Bumgardner explains that the 440 ft. tall tower was designed to serve as a “highly visible gateway to downtown Seattle, and will reconnect the Capitol Hill neighborhood to downtown with a strong street level presence.” The building’s unique shape of three sides sloping outward means it will have more square footage on the upper levels than below. In addition the Tower will feature a rooftop swimming pool, lounge and observation deck.
