Encore Belltown

Seattle, Washington

Encore Belltown, in the heart of Seattle's Belltown neighborhood, features floor-to-ceiling windows and Juliet balconies with ample natural light. This new construction provides 60 urban-style studio and one bedroom apartments with commercial space at street level. The views on all sides and proximity to the downtown business district make this property perfect for Seattleites who embrace the efficient urban living culture.

BSE worked closely with design and construction teams to bring the unique triangular building to life. Our engineers utilized three-dimensional building information modeling (BIM) and finite-element analysis to visualize and resolve the engineering challenges of this unique project footprint.

 

The top five levels are framed using sustainable and renewable engineered wood products. Below is a concrete podium with post-tensioned concrete floors to best-leverage the performance of the concrete and reduce material cost and carbon footprint.
