In the News: Sustainability in the Emerald City

This article was originally published over on Paladino & Company’s blog and you can view it here and check out their work here. A big thanks to the Paladino & Company team for including us!

In 2018 Paladino was asked to join Caron Architecture on the project team for a 30-story mixed-use development in the heart of Seattle’s University District at 4510 11th Avenue Northeast. The project is owned by PFHC Inc. and will include 123 units of housing, 168 hotel rooms, 4700 SF of retail and 183 parking stalls. It will be validated by a sustainability strategy that aligns with the eco-ethos of this market and is back-checked by a LEED certification.

We quickly found kinship with the Caron team and have enjoyed a thriving collaboration ever since.

Caron is a full-service architecture firm that provides simple, elegant designs for a variety of clients. Since 2002, their experience in design and land-use planning allows them to offer streamlined project delivery resulting in unique and marketable design solutions.

David Reddish is an Associate Principal at Caron and is fostering the sustainability program at the firm. Caron has recently strengthened its commitment to sustainable design, and we are delighted to share some highlights from a recent conversation we had with David about their green path forward.
