624 Yale Apartments

Designed to Connect Two Neighborhoods, Mere Steps From Everything

Located within blocks of Amazon’s Seattle Campus, and steps away from outdoor recreation and everything the city and neighborhood have to offer, 624 Yale Apartments consists of two nine-story apartments featuring 10-foot floor-to-ceiling heights. The two buildings combined consist of 206 apartment units, each with rooftop amenity spaces that take advantage of the spectacular views of Lake Union.

Each tower features post-tensioned decks with concrete cores and shear walls. The south building has three levels of underground parking, and the north tower includes tenant storage in the basement. The exterior features two-tone masonry with window wall construction. The project was built using ‘Green’ construction practices promoting thoughtful use of materials, energy, and water, with each rooftop featuring solar panels and sustainable rooftop landscaping.

An Obstructive I-5 On-Ramp and Tight Urban Neighborhood

Interstate-5 separates the Seattle neighborhoods of Capitol Hill and South Lake Union. Proximity to the highway system, along with the tight urban neighborhood, and a dead-end street, all combined to create construction challenges with existing neighbors and material deliveries. Communication and logistics coordination was key.
