9TH & LENORA
Seattle, Wa / In Progress
9th & Lenora is a 45-story, 396-unit residential tower located across from Amazon’s main campus. This project follows on the heels of the recently completed 2030 8th Ave project, part of the initiative to meet the demand for additional housing in the rapidly expanding SLU/Denny Triangle neighborhood.
On April 8th, 2017, months of planning, coordination, and shop fabrication culminated in a series of flawlessly executed crane picks at 9th & Lenora. The tight project schedule, as well as the fact that the main mechanical room was not located on the highest floor, necessitated that major mechanical room equipment be set in place before the slab above could be formed and poured. MacMiller seized this opportunity to create seismically engineered, prefabricated skids for our large hydronic pumps and boilers, as well as set domestic water boilers and a hot water storage tank directly into place. In the following weeks, the remaining equipment and pre-fabricated piping were lifted into place. The pre-fabricated skids and piping allowed us to accelerate the mechanical room build-out to keep up with an aggressive project schedule.
