YAF: Construction Tour - 121 Stewart Street
Adjacent to the Pike Place Market and on the edge between downtown and Belltown, The Emerald is a new high-rise condominium project.
The small, 7,350 sf, irregular shaped site at the southwest corner of 2nd Ave. and Stewart Street lends itself to a distinctive design solution. As the 439 ft, 40-story structure increases in height, the floor plates expand to over 9,100 sf by cantilevering over its neighbor, the Broadacres Building, to the south. The shape of the. The Emerald’s expanded floors take on the shape of the shifting street grid pattern between downtown Seattle and Belltown. This expression strengthens a relationship between the site and architectural form.
