To demonstrate that high density residential projects can be built without undermining the scale or character of the neighborhood.

We took advantage of a new zoning designation designed to limit urban sprawl by allowing higher density projects in Seattle's residential neighborhoods. After successfully completing the stringent review process, we built nine condominiums, an average of 1,000 square feet each.

Private capital, Wells Fargo Bank

Selected by the Urban Land Institute as one of 9 case studies for 2005 Residential Development Handbook

Approximately $2.5 million
