The 2202 8th Avenue, Seattle Washington project is a new 40 floor (400 foot tall) residential tower consisting of approx. 435 units. It is located at the convergence of the Denny Triangle and South Lake Union neighborhoods. The project is designed by Graphite Design and also counts with 1 level of retail mixed-use and the balance of the tower as residential. All this with a 7 below grade parking levels (approx. 389 residential parking stalls). This project features residential amenity decks with outdoor living rooms, kitchens, a dog run, spa, and garden spaces. It is a dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass and an iconic elliptical shape building that captures the sun and creates stunning panoramic views. The building’s characteristic shape has been thought to create uniform view access for all the residents while also responding to the curved forms of neighboring properties. As of the construction phases, the excavation of the 2202 8th Ave Project was completed in the summer of 2016, the building utilities were installed in the summer of 2017 and the site work has been finished up in June 2018.
CorbisStudio supported Graphite Design in the Design Development and Construction Drawings stages with the production of BIM Models for Architecture Shell & Core only (all interior spaces including unit plans were not included in this proposal) with approximately 79 sheets for DDs and approximately 130 sheets for CDs for the 2202 8th Ave project. We produced the models based on the Schematic Design CAD drawings received from our client to set up the base models to progress from DD and CD. CorbisStudio supported the client with the production of the documentation for the architectural drawings, including annotating, dimensions, tagging, sheet view setups, and schedule generation.
