The Jack tops out in Pioneer Square

12.14.2022 | Daily Journal of Commerce

The Jack is developed by Urban Visions and is being built by JTM Construction. Olson Kundig is the architect. JLL is brokering the project’s approximately 145,500 square feet of rentable space which includes around 136,000 square feet of office space and 9,500 square feet of ground-level restaurant/retail space.

The recent topping out marks the end of structural construction and the start of exterior finishings and interior work. When complete, in addition to the office and retail portions, The Jack will have a 16,000-square-foot rooftop deck and a 40-stall below-grade parking garage. There will also be secure bike storage and fully appointed locker rooms.

The Jack is targeting WiredScore, WELL Building, LEED, Salmon-Safe and SEAM certifications. In a recent press release, Olson Kundig said the building’s design melds inspiration from nearby historic properties with forward-thinking office amenities that aim to meet the needs of the workforce of today and beyond. “I’ve always thought of The Jack as less revolutionary and more evolutionary,” Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA, design principal at Olson Kundig, said in the release. “My hope is that at the end of the day, it will feel like a smart, sensitive new building in a great, old neighborhood.”

“We look forward to opening The Jack in 2023 along Seattle’s newly designed pedestrian-friendly waterfront,” Greg Smith, Urban Visions founder and CEO, added in the release. “Urban Visions is committed to creating iconic spaces that reflect the region’s values while providing the kind of workspaces that foster innovation, collaboration and community, and The Jack is just that.”
