Located in downtown Seattle, 100 Stewart Hotel & Apartments is a mixed-use development with hospitality, residential, retail and publicly accessible courtyard space. The development enhances the pedestrian-oriented richness of the neighboring historic Pike Place Market District with an interior courtyard that connects to existing pedestrian pathways to offer a sheltered space of respite.

The site’s position at a major axial grid shift – where First Avenue bends to align with the city’s topography – also presented a unique opportunity to mark this significant intersection and act as a gateway between neighborhoods. The building serves as a contemporary landmark that visually and physically responds to the surrounding urban context. The eleven-story hotel, which faces the intersection, both commands and honors the site, transforming from a semitransparent crystal box by day to an illuminated sanctuary by night.
