Green Space
Sometimes, the best part of a home is not inside the walls—it’s outside. To foster a connection to nature, we included…
  • a landscaped central courtyard dotted with industrial shipping accents
  • a rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the river and four mountains on clear days
  • two mature linden trees signalling the entrance to the St. Johns Bridge. These were protected and saved during construction
  • new trees planted all around the building, selected from the City’s official Urban Forestry street tree list
  • northwest native plants, such as vine maple trees, western spiraea, wood violets and deer fern. Native plantings are non-invasive and have less need for fertilizers or pesticides
  • an efficient irrigation system to reduce water usage
  • flow-through planter boxes to filter roof water runoff before it enters the City’s storm water system. Storm water runoff can pick up and carry pollutants into our local streams and rivers
