Award Winning Proposal

A team of seven graduate students from Portland State University won the 3rd Annual NAIOP Challenge with their proposal for a 15 story mixed use condo tower on the Seattle waterfront. The proposed Elliott Bay Lofts, consisting of 8 retail spaces and 285 condominium units, will be targeted to young creative class workers, empty-nesters, and single baby boomers. With so many high-end condos opening in the downtown Seattle market, the development team mitigated risks by focusing on individuals of more modest means. The team created added value by rehabilitating an existing parking garage, reducing the need for costly underground parking, and proposing roof-top gardens, energy savings devices, and other means to achieve environmental sustainability.
