Description: GCH is working with Miller Hull Architects and Rhodes Architecture + Light on the new Youngone Design Center with executive apartments. This site is located along the waterfront adjacent to Elliott Bay, the Seacrest Ferry Dock and Alki trail. GCH’s role includes landscape design for a pedestrian breezeway, an arrival water feature integrated with the architecture, Harbor Avenue and a rooftop terrace with amazing views towards the Seattle skyline. The pedestrian breezeway provides a direct connection from upper West Seattle to the pedestrian trail system along Alki. The design incorporates an existing foundation built in 1927 that will be landscaped with nurse logs saved from the site and native plants.
