Altamira helped to revitalize the West Seattle Junction neighborhood with big box retail and market-rate housing. With a series of setbacks along SW Alaska Street, the building takes advantage of Puget Sound views. It is contemporary and rich in contrast and creates a sense of accommodation and grace. Unit floor plans are simple and open with efficient use of space that accommodates revisions by tenants.
Situated on a sloping site, the landscape design features a large public open space and pedestrian plaza. Tenants share a central landscaped courtyard and roof terrace.
