The Rush Companies and Pastakia + Associates have finished Bogtown Flats at 9039 Greenwood Ave. N. in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood.

Rush's website lists the project value at $29.5 million.

The 85-unit project originally was named Woodland. It consists of six floors of apartments over two levels of concrete parking garage with 56 stalls, 23 of them with a storage space. Apartments range from about 600 to 1,100 square feet and consist of open one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom loft configurations. Included are six live/work lofts. Some units have views of the Olympic Mountains.

Amenities include a bourbon lounge, pet spa, rooftop deck, fitness loft, and repair station and storage room for 23 bikes.

Rents range from $1,655 to $2,600 a month — except for 20% of the units that fall under the city's multifamily property tax exemption program. To be eligible for reduced rent, household income must be below 75% area median income for one-bedroom units and 85% for two-bedroom units.

Rush Commercial Construction, a division of the Rush Companies, built the 106,300-square-foot project using panelized wood framing and cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned concrete decks.

Encore Architects is the designer.

Here is the design team: Vida Design, interiors; Weisman Design Group, landscape architect; Bykonen Carter Quinn, structural engineer; KPFF Consulting Engineers, civil engineer; BEE Consulting, envelope; PanGeo, geotechnical engineer; GB Systems, mechanical; Eco Electric, electrical; and Aloisio Plumbing & Heating, plumbing.

Major subcontractors were Lawson & Sons Excavating, Kulchin Drilling Foundation Co., Carmona Construction, Aloisio, Eco Electric, HCK Construction (framing), First Defense Fire Protection, GB Systems and Pacific One.

The building is named after the neighborhood's boggy beginnings, according to Edison47, the property's manager. The DJC reported in 2002 that some buildings and roads in the neighborhood were sinking because they were built without pilings on peat bogs.

A Rush spokeswoman wrote in an email that the building has a 3-foot-thick mat slab foundation and is founded on firm, undisturbed glacial outwash soils well upland of any peat areas.
