The Conco Companies is providing concrete services for a 40-story apartment building at 970 Denny Way located in the South Lake Union neighborhood in Seattle, Washington. The redevelopment project is from the Holland Partner Group and is a blend of both modern and classic styles. Holland Construction is serving as the general contractor and the Seattle-based architectural firm of Weber Thompson designed the contemporary style building.
Conco successfully completed part of our concrete services when our crews poured 4,900 cubic yards of concrete last month to form the 15,300 square foot mat foundation. In addition to the concrete, the foundation required 1.3 million pounds of rebar. The pour was done over approximately 15 hours and the concrete was supplied by CalPortland.
The core of the mixed-use tower will be constructed of 386 steel fiber-reinforced concrete coupling beams. Once it is completed, the project will consist of 468 apartments in a choice of unit sizes and configurations as well as 15,580 square feet of retail and 4 levels of sub-grade parking to accommodate 359 vehicles. The retail space along with a six-story podium will face Denny and features a brick exterior with steel canopies designed to represent the area’s industrial past. The tower’s curtain wall is designed almost entirely of tinted glass in tones of blue, grey and silver-white.
The project expects to receive LEED Silver certification. Amenities include a terrace and pavilion on top of the podium located on the Denny side of the building that will be covered on three sides to provide a temperature-controlled space. A lush, rooftop garden will offer views of Lake Union, the Space Needle, and Elliot Bay and serve as a gathering space for residents to dine and relax. The location of the building is within walking distance to the downtown Seattle area and transportation hubs. The building is expected to be ready for the first occupants by the summer of 2018.
