Northlake Commons, Seattle’s first mass timber life-science building, is rising quickly at 3800 Latona Ave. N.E. near the shores of Lake Union.
The four-story, 196,000-square-foot project consists of two majority mass timber buildings, which will house a mix of life-science and tech office space, above a concrete podium/plaza level.
Floors one and two are slated for life-science tenants and three and four for tech clients, with around 167,000 square feet of total rentable space. The ground/plaza level has 4,000 square feet of retail and 4,000 square feet of restaurant space. No tenants have been confirmed.
General contractor Swinerton Builders broke ground on the project last February. The larger building, the east building, is topped out. The west building is slated to top out in mid to late May. All construction is on schedule to be completed this fall.
