The team behind Greenfire Campus has launched a website for the mixed-use project in Ballard.
The site is between Northwest 56th and 57th streets and 20th and 22nd avenues, next to the Ballard Library. The complex will have a 5-story apartment building with 18 units and a 4-story, 18,000-square-foot office building with ground floor retail or restaurant space.
An unnamed office tenant is taking the top two floors. Laura Ford of Jones Lang LaSalle is marketing the office space, and Anne Marie Koehler of CBRE is handling leasing for the retail and restaurant space.
The website greenfirecampus.com doesn't list the individuals in Greenfire Group Limited Liability Co., but says it is a team of “like-minded individuals interested in implementing and promoting a vision of sustainability for the next century.”
The goal of the project is to balance green construction and cost effectiveness, and build on the vibrancy of the neighborhood. This will create a community that “demonstrates both sensible and social sustainability,” the website states. A small example is using a simple system to transfer used water from sinks to toilet tanks. This will increase water reuse without the expense of a standalone graywater system.
In addition to CBRE and Jones Lang LaSalle, project team members are Seneca Group, development manager; Johnston Architects; Robin Chell Design, interiors; Walsh Construction; The Watershed Co., landscape architecture; WSP Flack + Kurtz, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering; 2020 Engineering, civil; and DCI Engineers, structural; and Blanton Turner, property management.
“We break ground in the spring, so stay tuned for updates,” architect Ray Johnston said.
