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.
