Joseph Arnold Lofts
Sophisticated Green Living with a View: Engineering apartment living on Seattle’s waterfront
DCI Engineers provided structural design services for this 164,000-sf, 12-story high-end apartment building located in Seattle, Washington. With sweeping views of The Olympics, Elliot Bay, and downtown Seattle, Joseph Arnold Lofts was designed for green living. This project has obtained a Green Globe Certification and includes a vegetated green roof, water-conserving irrigation system, and electric vehicle charging stations. DCI Engineers used post-tensioned concrete stabs to maximize space and economize the structure. Building amenities include; parking garage, fitness center, board room, and outdoor lounge.
- The entire basement is designed to keep groundwater out of the building instead of requiring a constant dewatering system.
- An additional thirteenth floor provides common gathering space with views of the Seattle pier and waterfront.
- Three stories of underground parking with basic and temperature controlled storage units.
