The condominium project planned at 1516 Second Avenue in downtown Seattle received a determination of non-significance under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). This favorable finding means site plans do not present a significant negative impact on the environment and enables the project to continue to progress toward possible groundbreaking this year. Rushing is providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering as well as energy services and lighting design for the 46- and 17-story towers.

Featuring a unique nested tower design, the yet-to-be-named site will offer 531 condominium units, six levels of below-grad parking, and ground floor commercial space in a unique nested tower design. Designed by Hewitt, the site is being developed by Pinnacle Fame Development and Plus Capital Partners.

Rushing is on the project teams of several other downtown Seattle condominium towers in progress, including Spire, The Emerald, Graystone, and Third and Cherry, as well as the recently completed NEXUS condominiums.
