MODERN MEETS TRADITIONAL
PURA® NFC BY TRESPA HELPS MODERN MEET TRADITIONAL IN MULTIFAMILY RESIDENCE
In Seattle’s sought-after Eastlake neighborhood, housing is becoming scarce. The community is sandwiched between the city’s beautiful Lake Union and main freeway, creating a popular destination with limited real estate. Recognizing the need for improved housing in this landstrapped space, Shilshole Development, LLC, undertook construction of a new multifamily residence, the Shelton Eastlake Apartment Complex.
Right away the development team realized the success of their project hinged on creating an apartment complex that added both housing and character to the Eastlake community. Multifamily developments have a reputation for focusing on function, rather than form, to maximize profits. An eyesore at the expense of increased housing was not what Seattle wanted in one of its longstanding communities—especially one known for its mix of traditional, European style homes and idyllic houseboats.
