Continental Properties topped out Tower 12, its 314-unit apartment complex at Second Avenue and Virginia Street in Belltown.
The 34-story tower has two concrete cores supporting post-tensioned decks. In addition to apartments, the 492,000-square-foot tower will have three levels of amenity spaces, ground-level retail, and parking for 312 cars in five below-grade and four above-grade levels.
Most units are one bedroom, but there will be 53 two-bedrooms and 12 penthouses. The average size of standard units is 825 square feet. Penthouses will average 1,476 square feet.
On the top floor will be a lounge, library, game room, gym and outdoor terrace overlooking Puget Sound, with barbecues and seating.
The sixth floor house a media center, conference room, outdoor fireplaces and barbecues.
PCL Construction Services said the project is one month ahead of schedule and should open in May 2017.
The general contractor also said its team has logged more than 500 days of work — more than 240,000 worker hours — without a recordable incident.
Weber Thompson and MG2 are the architects, and Cary Kopczynski & Co. is the structural engineer. Rushing, Morrison Hershfield, Sechrist Design Associates, Thomas Rengstorf & Associates, PACE Engineers, Terracon and SSA Acoustics are also on the team.
The project is expected to have a LEED silver rating.
