Location: Seattle, WA Size: 515,000 sf office / 25,000 sf retail / 2 towers Projected Completion: 2020
Located at 700 Dexter Ave. N. and scheduled for completion in late 2020, Dexter Yard will offer approximately 515,000 square feet of tech office or life sciences laboratory and office space, and approximately 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. One of two primary goals for this project is to provide an elegant building design that responds to the neighborhood and provides efficiency and flexibility for future office tenants; the second is to provide an active outdoor space that connects to the surrounding neighborhood.
The design and inspiration for the 15-story Dexter Yard project respects the history and character of South Lake Union’s industrial past. With 360-degree views of Lake Union, downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay, the project creates a strong sense of place by enhancing the pedestrian experience at this transitional location between residential areas to the north and commercial developments to the south.
The Dexter Yard name reflects the project’s open, community-centric design and unique amenity space — the Pitch. Situated at the southwest corner of the property, at 8th Ave. N. and Roy St., the Pitch is a full-sized open athletic field that invites tenants and neighbors alike to play on-site. The campus’ through-block connections and field house amenity space are designed to invite on-going activity and community engagement.
