Construction progress at Seattle House as of mid-March.

The twin 45-story towers that will comprise Concord Pacific and HB Management's luxury mixed-use apartment building called Seattle House have reached level 13.

Seattle House is rising at 2300 Sixth Ave. in the Denny Triangle neighborhood, a short distance from Amazon's South Lake Union headquarters.

When completed, the 1.3 million-square-foot development will have approximately 1,100 housing units. Most of those will be traditional market-rate rentals. Some are slated to be extended-stay rentals.

Seattle House’s twin residential towers are being built above a shared podium level.

The unit mix will be studios, one- and two-bedrooms.

Residents will share around 50,000 square feet of amenity spaces that are set to include rooftop gardens, a glass-bottomed pool, community workspace with individual work pods, a gaming room, library, and experimental kitchen.

Beneath the residential towers will be a podium level with around 10,000 square feet of retail space. Beneath the podium will be an eight-level subterranean parking garage.

Concord Pacific is based in Vancouver, B.C., and HB Management is based in Seattle. Arcadis IBI Group is the architect for Seattle House. Centreville Construction, Concord Pacific's construction arm, is the general contractor. LIV Design Studio is handling the interior design.

Above-ground construction began last fall. A projected completion/opening date for Seattle House is yet to be shared, but it is expected to open in phases.

Cary Kopczynski & Co., the project's structural engineer, shared the construction update on its social media platforms in mid-March. The firm also shared some of the innovations it incorporated in the building's structural design. These include steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) coupling beams that eliminated the need for shear wall diagonal bars.
