Project Objectives

The Broadstone project at Terry and Boren is a proposed 8 story mixed-use building with residential units and commercial space that will infil l a vacant site in the First Hill neighborhood. As more properties in First Hill are developed for Seattle residents seeking housing with convenient access to Downtown, this project is designed to serve the increasing population with pedestrian amenity space and to mark the entrance to the neighborhood.

The project site area is one city block. The building is comprised of 5 wood frame levels over a 3 story, semi below grade, concrete podium. The main entrance, a multi-level glass space, located at the intersection of Terry and James will tie into the City of Seattle’s development plans for a green-street expansion. The project will have approximately 350 apartment units with approximately 300 parking stalls accessed from grade on Terry Street.

Through its scale, modulation and material selection, the proposed building will reflect the characteristics of the area’s historic residential and civic projects and offer an asset to the community.

First Hill Neighborhood

First Hill is located on a steep hill which climbs directly up from downtown. On the north it is bound by the Pike/Pine Corridor, the south by Yestler Terrace and on the east it stretches past Seattle University to 12th Avenue. It is crisscrossed by three major arterials: E Madison Street, Broadway and Boren Avenue.

Also known as “Pill Hill” the neighborhood is home to three large hospitals, Swedish, Virginia Mason and Harborview, and a number of medical clinics and offices. This is perhaps the single most defining characteristic of the neighborhood.

Early on in Seattle’s history First Hill was an upscale residential neighborhood. There are stil l a handful of grand historic houses which have been preserved.

First Hill is one of the downtown neighborhoods with a priveledged location adjacent to the central business district as well as Pike/Pine and Capitol Hill which together form one of Seattle’s cultural centers. As such, it is a popular residential neighborhood because of the many work and cultural amenities nearby. Additionally, the area houses students attending Seattle University on the East side of the neighborhood.

The main shopping opportunities are along Madison where there are a number of restaurants, coffee shops as well as a grocery store and drug stores. There is a new Whole Foods under construction at Broadway and Madison which will provide another anchor for the neighborhood.

Some of the hill’s nearby amenities are Freeway Park, the Frye Art Museum and Cal Anderson Park.

Project Site:

The site comprises a square shaped city block and is zoned HR (Multi-Family High-rise). There is a 251’-6” frontage on James and Jefferson Streets and a 235’ frontage on Terry and Boren Avenues. The northeast corner is chamfered at a 45 degree angle.

The site has a significant slope from 322’ at the northwest cor-ner up to 342’ at the southeast corner which represents a 20’ total difference. The steepest slopes are along James (~14’ drop) and along Jefferson Street (~16’ drop). Terry Avenue is relatively flat (~4’ drop) and Boren somewhat less so (~8’ drop)

There is an existing three story apartment building on Terry Avenue. On Jefferson there is an existing concrete slab on grade with no structure on it. Off of Boren and Jefferson there is a surface level parking lot with two separate curb cuts for the entry and exit both off of Terry Avenue. There is an addi-tional existing entry to the parking lot off of Jefferson Street.

The quieter and less steep Terry Avenue provides a good op-portunity for pedestrian access. In addition the slower mov-ing traffic, lower grade and existing curb cuts on Terry provide a natural location for vehicular access. The adjacent Harbor-view Ninth and Jefferson Building also has its vehicular access from Terry Ave.

CS2 - URBAN PATTERN AND FORM

CS2.A1 - Location in the City and Neighborhood | Sense of Place “Emphasize attributes that give the neighborhood its distinctive sense of place. Design the building and open spaces to enhance areas where a strong identity already exists, and create a sense of place where the physical context is less established. Examples of features that contributed to a sense of place include patterns of streets or blocks, slopes, sites with prominent visibility, relationships to bodies of water or significant trees, natural areas, openspaces, iconic buildings or transportation junctions, and land seen as a gateway to the community.”

CS2.A1 - RESPONSE:The proposed project will infil l a prominent block in the First Hill neighborhood providing a variety of housing types and retail space. First Hill is too often identified as the location of hospitals instead of the opportunistically located community between Capitol Hill and Downtown. The project will present a neighborhood marker and contribute to an increased sense of community identity by providing necessary residential unit density and amenities on what is currently a ground level parking lot.The project site is situated in a highly visible location at the intersection of principle arterials at Boren Avenue and James Street. Jefferson Street, bordering the property on the South is a designated collector arterial. The presence of the building will act as a gateway to First Hill especially for vehicles along Boren Ave and pedestrians on James Street. The project will enhance the neighborhood residential pattern, providing a varied streetscape on all sides.

CS2.B2 - Adjacent Sites | Connection to the Street “Identify opportunities for the project to make a strong connection to the street and carefully consider how the building will interact with the public realm. Consider the qualities and character of the streetscape— its physical features (sidewalk, parking, landscape strip, street trees, travel lanes, and other amenities) and its function (major retail street or quieter residential street)—in siting and designing the building.”

CS2.B2 - RESPONSE:The project fronts on four streets, each with a distinct character. The design will take cues from the existing neighborhood pattern, responding to the characteristics of each street. James, a major vehicular connection to downtown, is not a major pedestrian street because of the extreme change in grade. Boren is a major North-South arterial with very heavy vehicular traffic and little pedestrian activity or amenities. Many of the buildings in the vicinity are built up to the property line. Jefferson is a quieter pedestrian street with no through traffic to downtown. Jefferson forms the southern edge of Seattle University to the East, and ends at the Harborview Park to the West. Existing mature street trees, southern exposure and less vehicular traffic provide an opportunity for a softer street edge on Jefferson. Terry is a designated green street with slower neighborhood vehicular traffic. The main vehicular entry to the adjacent Harborview Ninth and Jefferson Building is located on Terry.

KEY DESIGN GUIDELINES responses

CS2 - URBAN PATTERN AND FORM (CONT’D)

CS2.C1 - Relationship to the Block | Corners“Corner sites can serve as gateways or focal points; both require careful detailing at the first three floors due to their high visibility from two or more streets and long distances. Consider using a corner to provide extra space for pedestrians and a generous entry, or build out to the corner to provide a strong urban edge to the block.”

CS2.C1 - RESPONSE:The project will have corners at 4 locations that will respond to the unique elements of the context. Entrances, amenity spaces, and retail spaces will occupy these most prominent areas.

CS2.D4 - Height, Bulk, and Scale | Massing Choices“Strive for a successful transition between zones where a project abuts a less intense zone. In some areas, the best approach may be to lower the building height, break up the mass of the building, and/or match the scale of adjacent properties in building detailing. It may be appropriate in other areas to differ from the scale of adjacent buildings but preserve natural systems or existing features, enable better solar exposure or site orientation, and/or make for interesting urban form.”

CS2.D4 - RESPONSE:Although the site is zoned for High Rise development the proposed project seeks to fit within the existing architectural massing and provide a transitional scale between the 14 story, 200’ tall Ninth and Jefferson building to the West and the 5 story First Hill Medical building to the East.

CS3 - ARCHITECTURAL CONTEXT AND CHARACTERCS3.A4 - Emphasizing Positive Attributes | Evolving Neighborhoods“In neighborhoods where architectural character is evolving or otherwise in transition, explore ways for new development to establish a positive and desirable context for others to build upon in the future.”

CS3.A4 - RESPONSE:More people are seeking high quality residential units within walking distance from Downtown and Capital Hill. The building expression will be based on a continued study of the context to inform a distil led modern architectural language that util izes high quality materials. The facade will be textural to add visual interest and inspire other developers to match.

RED sites are currently under development. The proposed project is central to First Hill’s evolving residential community.

PL1 - CONNECTIVITY

PL1.B3 - Walkways and Connections: Pedestrian Amenities“Opportunities for creating lively, pedestrian oriented open spaces to enliven the area and attract interest and interaction with the site and building should be considered. Visible access to the building’s entry should be provided. Examples of pedestrian amenities include seating, other street furniture, lighting, year-round landscaping, seasonal plantings, pedestrian scale signage, site furniture, art work, awnings, large storefront windows, and engaging retail displays and/or kiosks.”

PL1.B3 - RESPONSE:While following neighborhood patterns, opportunities for pedestrian interest will be created by providing a landscaped buffer on Boren and a landscaped plaza on Terry.

PL3 - STREET LEVEL INTERACTION

PL3.A1 - Entries | Design Objectives“Design primary entries to be obvious, identifiable, and distinctive with clear lines of sight and lobbies visually connected to the street. Scale and detail them to function well for their anticipated use and also to fit with the building of which they are a part, differentiating residential and commercial entries with design features and amenities specific to each.”

PL3.A1c - “Common entries to multi-story residential buildings need to provide privacy and security for residents but also be welcoming and identifiable to visitors. Design features emphasizing the entry as a semi-private space are recommended and may be accomplished through signage, low walls and/or landscaping, a recessed entry area, and other detailing that signals a break from the public sidewalk.”

PL3.A1c - RESPONSE:A corner main entry will be located on the quieter intersection at James Street and Terry Street. The double height scale of the lobby, expansive glazing, and prominent canopies will allow it to stand as a beacon in the evening. At this location, the building allows for more direct relation to the area’s developing center. A second entrance on Boren and Jefferson will provide connection to the South and East.

PL3.B2 - Residential Edges | Ground-Level Residential“Privacy and security issues are particularly important in buildings with ground-level housing, both at entries and where windows are located overlooking the street and sidewalk. Consider providing a greater number of transition elements and spaces, and choose materials carefully to clearly identify the transition from public sidewalk to private residence.”

PL3.B2 - RESPONSE:In the preferred scheme, the massing of the building works to provide a comfortable setback off of Terry Street. Planters and porches at two-level units along Boren Avenue will provide a physical buffer as well as opportunities for landscaping to visually obscure direct views into the units. The slope of the site on James Street will allow units to be above eye level and have a finely articulated facade design that will help to differentiate the residential area from the more public corner entry.

KEY DESIGN GUIDELINES responses

DC2 - ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPT

DC2.B1 - Architectural and Facade Composition“Design all building facades—including alleys and visible roofs—considering the composition and architectural expression of the building as a whole. Ensure that all facades are attractive and well proportioned through the placement and detailing of all elements, including bays, fenestration, and materials, and any patterns created by their arrangement.”

DC2.B1 - RESPONSE:The facade will respond to the architectural history of brick apartment buildings like Englewood and others nearby. The elegant composition will be updated to include modern accents related to window penetrations and main entrances. Furthermore, the materials will be util ized in a variety of orientations that will subtly create a compelling design when experienced at close proximity.

DC4 - EXTERIOR ELEMENTS AND FINISHES

DC4.A1 - Exterior Finish Materials“Building exteriors should be constructed of durable and maintainable materials that are attractive even when viewed up close. Materials that have texture, pattern, or lend themselves to a high quality of detailing are encouraged.”

DC4.A1 - RESPONSE:Our vision for the project is to incorporate material elements historically used in First Hill and Capitol around 1900 to 1920 alongside modern materials and design elements. A few of these buildings remain because of their quality construction and pleasing aesthetic. The proposed project would take design cues from these buildings while incorporating modern materials to create visual interest.

Code Compliant Scheme:

Pros:- Highlights all 4 corners by recessing and strong glazing patterns.

Cons:-Required sebacks create greater separation from the street than the surrounding neighborhood pattern. Setback areas are difficult to landscape with impact, are difficult to maintain in a heavy traffic area. Northern side will be heavily shaded and restricts planting opportunities.-Required setbacks reduce the amount of interior courtyard area that can be provided.

Pros:- Reducing setbacks on James St and Boren Ave follows neighborhood pattern on heavily trafficked streets.- Corners are emphasized by extending beyond adjacent planes.- Increased setbacks at Terry and Boren Avenues creates visual interest for pedestrians. The setback area on Terry will provide an enhanced pedestrian zone along the Green Street, while the setback area on Boren will provide room for a landscaped buffer for units while providing much needed relief for pedestrians.- Placing entries at corners provides convenient access from all directions and creates greater prominence at the corners.- Maintaining setback on Jefferson provides space for landscape with southern exposure, while preserving existing street trees.- Proposed modulation mimics scale of historic apartments and alley pattern.
