I recently got an email from the Eleven Eleven’s PR agency. I’ll do my own review after I’ve had a chance to take an on-site look personally. In the meantime, here’s what the project representative has to say. One thing I will say is it’s a refreshingly styled building from the artist’s rendition.
I recently took a hard hat tour of Eleven Eleven East Pike, and I thought you might be interested in a construction update. As you can see from the photos below, Eleven Eleven East Pike is really taking shape in its Pike/Pine triangle neighborhood of Capitol Hill. From the beginning, I have been excited about this building and to have the opportunity to walk through it and experience it in its entirety made me even more excited. Eleven Eleven East Pike will be beautiful and comfortable, and will truly be at home in Capitol Hill.
I was impressed with the large open spaces of the 27 dwellings that you can make your own, with the help of Kundig’s moveable puzzle wall. And the dramatic height of the nine-foot ceilings and the oversized doors and windows lend an overall feeling of spaciousness. Each unit will be flooded with natural light from a wide expanse of north or south facing windows. And beyond are fantastic views of the Pike/Pine streetscape, as well as the Space Needle, downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay and the Olympic mountain range.
As you probably recall, Eleven Eleven East Pike is the brainchild of Tom Kundig, award-winning architect and principal at Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, and Anne Michelson, long-time Capitol Hill resident, business owner, property manager, building owner and developer. It will be completed this fall. I have attached a project fact sheet here as well, to refresh your memory on some of the specifics.
