Via6 is a distinctive mixed-use project on the edge of South Lake Union, Belltown and Downtown. The two-tower development rises above a seven-story base with frontage along the full length of the block. Street level uses include restaurants, an urban grocer, retail, and a bicycle shop. These uses open to the streetscape and connect to an interior “market street” to create a unique third place that blends the concepts of residential and commercial, public and private.
The landscape architecture provides a distinct amenity for these residential towers. A private rooftop garden and pavilion sits between the two towers on the seven-story podium offering a series of outdoor spaces. The pavilion has an expansive green roof visible from the twin residential towers. The planting selection includes drought-tolerant vegetation and a rainwater collection system that reduces the need for potable water for irrigation.
