The 1st & Stewart hotel and apartment building is located in downtown Seattle. The design responds to the built urban context while serving as an iconic landmark for the neighborhood.
By creating a strong visual terminus at the grid shift on First Avenue, the development will anchor the North-South prospect between Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market. The building will embrace the streetscape, creating visual interest through the texture and pattern of surface treatments and window fenestration. With planned use of courtyard and alley space, the development will enhance and extend the pedestrian oriented richness of the market district, characterized by pedestrian courtyards such as Pike Street Hillclimb Court and Post Alley. The development’s protected urban space will extend the flow of activity to the east side of First Avenue.
Thompson Seattle is the flagship tenant for the project.
