Go Behind the Scenes on Two Fascinating Tours
South Lake Union Development
Monday, June 25, 2:30 - 5:00 pm
This is your chance to visit one of the country's fastest growing and most environmentally innovative urban neighborhoods. Situated in the geographic center of Seattle, South Lake Union is home to Amazon.com's new corporate headquarters and is a major hub for several prominent bio-tech and global health organizations, including Seattle BioMed, PATH, and The University of Washington School of Medicine Research Campus. To create a sustainable and vibrant urban neighborhood, Vulcan Real Estate developed a rich blend of LEED-certified commercial and multi-family properties and rehabilitated historic structures while working with numerous partners to enhance public transportation, parks and public space, and public art.
Shuttle bus transportation is provided. Participants will be taken to the South Lake Union Discovery Center for an overview of the neighborhood and Vulcan's various development projects. Participants will then be split into groups for tours of Amazon.com's new campus, The University of Washington School of Medicine Research Campus, and the mixed-use residential projects Alley24 and Stack House, both of which blend environmentally savvy design with historic restoration and rehabilitation.
U.S. Bank Centre
Tuesday, June 26, 2:30 - 5:00 pm
U.S. Bank Centre, managed by Bentall Kennedy, is an impressive mixed-use development which combines both historical and contemporary architectural elements while providing a blend of public, retail and office space. It is the eighth tallest building in Seattle and was designed by Callison Architecture. The U.S. Bank Centre is strategically located at the peak of Seattle's central business district, adjacent to the city's retail core and financial district. The building includes a three-level retail atrium with a connecting arcade. There are 18 corner-style offices per floor. The building was awarded an Energy Star label in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 for its operating efficiency. In 2011, the building was awarded LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
