This 207-unit building is a part of Seattle’s Living Building Pilot Program promoting sustainable projects. Some requirements are landscaping and maintenance that demonstrate no fertilizers or pesticides will be used, a rooftop bee apiary, a greywater recycling system for irrigation and solar panels to meet the net positive energy goal of 105% provided by renewable sources.
LIZA is approximately 210,000 gross SF and consists of four levels of Type IA construction with three of those levels either fully or partially below-grade. These levels contain a mix of parking (96 vehicles and 181 bicycle), MEP spaces, apartments, common/amenity spaces and commercial space. The entrances from Eastlake Avenue East to the building lobby, townhome/live/work units and commercial space are on Level 2. The concrete transfer slab is at Level 3 with six levels of Type IIIA wood construction above. This project is also slated for LEED for Homes v4.0 Gold Level certification and is a Living Building Challenge project.
