The 13-story Walton Lofts in Belltown is a 136-unit complex at Western Avenue and Vine Street.
The project is part of Growing Vine Street, a community effort that started in the 1990s to create a street park.
Walton Lofts uses a system of runnels and weirs that capture rainwater, filter it through a green roof, and move it through runnels on the exterior of the building to Vine Street. Water pours from a sculpture into the weir system where it is filtered before going into Puget Sound.
The building has a library, private guest suite for visitors, bicycle workshop and storage, rooftop pet walk and deck with views of Elliott Bay.
The project received Three Globes certification from Green Building Initiative's Green Globes program, which is equivalent to LEED gold.
