4th & Columbia

Located in the heart of Seattle’s Financial District on Fourth Avenue between Columbia and Cherry Streets, 4th & Columbia is a sustainably designed, transit-oriented vertical village that represents a transformative opportunity to respectfully complement the downtown Seattle skyline.

Preserving and paying homage to the civic character of the surrounding buildings, 4th & Columbia will transform a couple of parking lots in a 9-to-5 business district into a vibrant 24/7 community. Creating a welcoming hub for civic and cultural life, the project features new public gathering spaces enriched with beautiful landscaping, lush greenery and comfortable seating areas.

4th & Columbia will be home to a creative mix of stores uniquely tailored to fit the needs and identity of the local community, with room for both an open food market and an anchor tenant, ideally a restaurant or bar & lounge. Ground level design features an expansive double-height space complete with a mezzanine for residents' and patrons' enjoyment, as well as multiple areas for respite with indoor/outdoor seating.

Designed to be sustainable for generations to come, 4th & Columbia embraces a transit-oriented lifestyle and leading-edge technologies that minimize environmental impact and reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint. Employing urban water recycling, renewable energy use, and locally-sourced construction materials, the project proposes an extensive amount of bicycle storage, car and bike-sharing options, electric car-charging stations, and access to various forms of alternate public transportation.
