TRACE NORTH APARTMENTS
The Trace North building is designed to fit within the urban character of Seattle’s energetic Pike/Pine Corridor. Architectural references to the commercial and manufacturing character of the neighborhood help this structure to be a welcomed addition to the local community. The ground floor retail spaces, the residential lobby and forecourt have been designed to create and enhance the active street life in this neighborhood. The careful design of the parking access, utility services and shoring allowed a very efficient and cost-effective pairing with the rehabilitated and expanded Trace Lofts, an adjacent project success by Johnson Oaklief Architecture and Planning.
