The design team was challenged with many goals such as achieving a LEED Gold rated status, create a contemporary design that would add to the Bellevue sky line and provide a building that could display art while be part of the art. The towers rest on a podium of amenity spaces, 19,000 square feet of retail, and parking for 875 vehicles in a total of 1.4 million square feet. The stone design would include 14,000 square feet of granite, limestone and marble in a scheme that would complement the exterior stone work, not compete with it.
The final stone design included mortar set paving, mechanically anchored cladding, firplace hearths, thresholds and base. The final selection of the stone materials took several months to complete and required consistant coordination with many suppliers, some never before used by CSI. The biggest challenge on this project was the continuious coordination with the field to ensure that the stone was installed not only on time but that it seamlessly tied in with numerous other materials that make the interior as artisctic as the exterior.
The project is proposed to reach a USGBC LEED™ Gold
