Rushing was the electrical engineer and full lighting designer for the Block 10 project which is made up of two new seven-story buildings with 278 residential units, 8,300 SF of retail space, and below grade parking for 305 vehicles. It also includes Core and Shell renovations to the historic 36,000 SF Supply Laundry Building for retail, restaurant and office use. A north-south alley and east-west pedestrian throughway will divide the block, providing public access to the project’s interior courtyard. 

The project is part of the 2030 District, participating in DPD’s Priority Green permitting incentive program and is striving to achieve a Platinum rating in the LEED for Homes Midrise Pilot program. The historic component is targeting LEED Platinum Core+Shell, and it is a candidate pilot project for Preservation Green Lab’s Outcome Based Energy Code review program with the City of Seattle.  

*note* Although Rafn provided preconstruction services, Exxel Pacific is the current contractor for this project.
