Vulcan Real Estate's Stack House and Supply Laundry complex won the 2015 Sustainable Development Award from NAIOP.
Stack House opened in 2013 with 278 apartments in two seven-story buildings at 1280 Harrison St. in South Lake Union. The Supply Laundry Building is a 109-year-old structure that was converted to 34,000 square feet of office and restaurant space.
Amazon.com leased the office portion. Retail tenants include Osteria Rigoletto, and Metropolitan Cafe and Deli.
Vulcan sold it in February to J.P. Morgan Asset Management for $150.5 million.
Runberg Architecture designed the complex, and Exxel Pacific built it. Also on the team: The Berger Partnership, Two 9 Design, Coughlin Porter Lundeen, KPFF Consulting Engineers, Ecotope, Rushing Co., O'Brien & Co., Riley Group, JRS Engineering and Farallon Consulting.
NAIOP praised Vulcan for preserving the Supply Laundry and constructing “the swale on Yale.” The swale was a collaboration between Vulcan and Seattle Public Utilities that gathers and cleans stormwater runoff from Capitol Hill before it enters Lake Union.
Native plants and soil in the swale remove approximately 92 percent of contaminants in runoff from about 190 million gallons of stormwater every year, according to a NAIOP press release.
The two apartment buildings earned LEED platinum certification. The Supply Laundry Building is targeting LEED gold.
