The Seattle Downtown Design Review Board unanimously approved the design of a project located at 1516 Second Ave. in the heart of downtown Seattle. Rushing is providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering for the project as well as lighting design and energy services.

The project is a two-building design with a larger tower and nested, smaller tower atop a shared podium. The 46-story site will include 518 apartment units, amenity space, retail space and 270 below-grade parking spots.

In addition to approving the design, the board recommended the project move forward with submitting a master use plan (MUP) application.
