REO Flats

Seattle,WA | Architect: Johnson Architecture & Planning | Completion Date:

Quantum Consulting Engineers provided structural and temporary shoring design for this mixed-use residential apartments build­ing located on 14th Avenue.  Located in the Pike-Pine neighborhood on Capitol Hill, this project adds high quality, contemporary multi-family residential units to the bustling community. The seven-story building developed by Madrona Real Estate of Seattle contains 108 living units, in­cluding below grade parking with 79 parking spaces and 7,200 square feet of street level retail spaces.
 
REO Flats is named for Ransom E. Olds, who was a pioneer in the American auto industry.  The Oldsmobile brand was named after him, and the car company once operated on Capitol Hill’s historic auto row where the new building is now located. REO Flats includes the original masonry facade of a 1925 structure that was on the site, and the entry is lined with brick salvaged from the Supply Laundry Building in South Lake Union.  A 32-by-42-foot tall mural painted on the south side of the building depicts the REO Speed Wagon, considered to be the ancestor of the pickup truck.
