The 40-story Premiere on Pine apartment tower required 493,000 pounds of light-gauge metal framing and nearly 2 million square feet of drywall.

Location: Seattle

Contractor: Anning-Johnson

Architect: Weber Thompson

Team: Ames Taping Tools, Award Metals, BASF Wall Systems, Cemco, Drywall Distributors, Georgia-Pacific, Hamilton Drywall Products, Hilti, R-Factor/Service Partners, USG Building Systems

Premiere on Pine is a 40-story apartment tower soaring 420 feet above Seattle’s theater district and the Washington State Convention Center, making it one of Seattle’s tallest residential towers.

It is marked by a bold design with a playful curtain wall facade in rich rust, gray and bronze tones. Two massive LED backlit glass walls light up at night.

The building contains 386 one- to three-bedroom apartments, including 42 spacious penthouse units. There are five levels of below-grade parking, with an additional five levels of parking above the first-level amenities.

Anning-Johnson joined with the Holland Partner Group team unusually early in the design development phase to help control the budget, provide value-added constructability review, and ensure the scope received the resources needed for bringing this unique building to market.

Anning-­Johnson’s scope included interior and exterior metal-stud framing; drywall; finishes; spray-applied, fire-resistive materials and intumescent fire-resistive materials; liquid-applied air barrier; sound and fire sealants; slab-edge fire containment; and thermal and sound insulation. It also included various types of hardware, including door frames, access panels, fire extinguisher cabinets, as well as some all-thread and unistrut support systems. The project required 493,000 pounds of light-gauge metal framing and nearly 2 million square feet of drywall.

The project’s location and aggressive schedule were challenging aspects of the project. Due to the small footprint and vertical nature of the tower, there was minimal laydown area. As a result, material was bundled into five-day custom packages and delivery times had to be coordinated with the Paramount Theatre across the street. Just-in-time deliveries were critical to the success of this project.

Judge’s comment: “The clean lines of the Premiere on Pine project give it a beautiful contemporary appearance. Combined with the wonderful amenities, urban location and striking views, this residence is bound to become one of the premier locations to live in downtown Seattle.”
