Callison Architects complete the Westlake/Terry Building in Seattle 

Callison announces the completion of the Westlake/Terry Building, one of Seattle’s first commercial projects expected to receive LEED-Gold certification. Developed by Vulcan Real Estate, the 317,000 square-foot project comprised of two buildings on a full-block will serve as new office space for Microsoft and new corporate headquarters for Group Health. The building also includes an array of retail and restaurant offerings. Situated in the heart of Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, Westlake/Terry is designed to seamlessly blend into the fabric of the city’s growing downtown community. A mid-block pedestrian walkway between the two buildings and sculptures by Seattle artist Claudia Fitch enliven the project’s street level experience. Westlake/Terry combines eco-friendly materials with amenities such as showers, bicycle storage and a nearby transit stop to encourage emission-free commutes. The building is designed to achieve additional energy savings by implementing an energy model that combines the resources of Seattle City Light and Puget Sound Energy to provide cost incentives for the building owners and tenants. The key sustainable features include: Unparalleled proximity to public transportation – bordered along three sides by the upcoming Seattle Streetcar line, shower facilities and bike storage rooms to encourage alternative transit, recycled building materials such as insulation, gypsum, concrete and steel, more natural daylight than traditional office buildings, non-ozone-depleting HVAC system to protect local eco-system, water system designed to reduce potable water use by up to 25 percent, native, drought-resistant landscaping, reflective roofing material to decrease “urban heat” output, high performance building envelope and building systems expected to reduce energy costs by at least 30 percent and use of local building reduced energy consumption and pollution associated with transportation.
