Four-story, 9,290-m² (100,000-ft²), 260-stall garage built into a steep hillside below Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, with two three-story retail and low-income and senior residential structures atop the garage and a main-level terrace for public circulation and civil site design for one-half city block. Structural challenges include bridging the garage basement over the northern terminus of a main Burlington Northern Santa Fe train tunnel located directly below, with less than 3 m (10 ft) of clearance. The project’s phasing maximizes available space following removal of an adjacent highway viaduct, and the public terrace will serve as a main public entry point to Seattle’s renovated waterfront.
