The Emerald

The Emerald

in design

At the Pike Place Market, this new addition to the Seattle skyline marks a point of convergence between water, land, and sky and between the dynamism of urban life and the tranquility of home.

The building takes its needle-shaped form from the convergence of the streets below. The power of the design lies in its immediacy and adjacency to one of Seattle’s most active, urban districts. Residents and visitors can transition seamlessly from the extraordinary activity of the Market and waterfront into a home environment that encourages regeneration.

The small, irregular site at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Stewart Street lends itself to a distinctive design solution. The 400-foot tower form articulates the shifted geometries of the street grid to form the roof-level amenity spaces and terraces that will command unobscured views to Puget Sound and the Olympics.
