Three Rushing projects are honorees of Seattle Business magazine’s 2019 Skyline Awards: Ascent South Lake Union, The State Hotel, and Sitka apartments. The Skyline Awards recognize top commercial real estate projects in the Puget Sound region. According to Seattle Business magazine, honorees are chosen “based on their economic impact and design aesthetic.”

The awards were announced at inaugural awards ceremony on August 22, 2019. Emily Carrasco, Rushing’s lead lighting designer whose team provided architectural lighting design services for all three projects, attended the event. “It was exciting to look around the room and see how many different talented developers and people we get to work with on our projects” said Emily.

Ascent, gold winner in the Multi-Family High Rise Development of the Year category, is a 25-story apartment building located in South Lake Union. Rushing provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services as well as lighting design, energy services, and sustainability management for the project.

Rushing’s State Hotel project, a historic downtown Seattle restoration of an eight-story hotel, earned another gold award in the Preservation Development of the Year category. Rushing provided lighting design and electrical engineering services for the hotel and Ben Paris restaurant.

Sitka, which earned silver in the Multi-Family Low-Mid Rise Development of the Year category, is a mid-rise apartment complex in South Lake Union with a design inspired by the San Juan Islands. Rushing’s lighting design and electrical engineering teams serviced this project.

The full list of 2019 Skyline Awards winners is published in the September 2019 issue of Seattle Business magazine.
