Built into a steep slope whose grade loses 65 feet from west to east, this high-rise office building is conceived as a series of buttresses which support Aurora Avenue. The terracing matches that of the adjacent hillside, affording opportunities for intensive roof gardens providing stunning views of Lake Union. John Hayduk, of JTM Construction, was an engaged and invaluable design critic throughout the process.
