Security Properties developed the mixed-use building between South Angeline and Edmunds Streets, just off Rainier Avenue South. The site is at the edge of the Columbia City historic district, on what was once a surface parking lot.
The 193 units sit above a 25,000-square-foot PCC grocery store that opened in July, and another 5,000 square feet of retail.
The design is intended to extend the style of the historic district’s buildings and streets to Columbia City Park. The southeast side reflects the older buildings’ brick facades. The exterior has a more modern look to the north, facing the park.
Two new streets — Park Drive South and South Angeline Street — are designed to function as woonerfs, and give pedestrians priority over cars.
The Angeline has 223 parking stalls on two below-grade levels.
Residents can use a bike club, fitness room, theater, sixth-floor lounge, dog-wash facilities and a roof-top terrace with P-patches.
On the second floor will be an urban farm, providing fresh produce for the deli.
Other members of the design team include: RDH, building envelop and energy consultant; KPFF, civil engineer; SSA Acoustics, acoustical engineer; SSF, structural engineer; GGLO, landscape design; LightWire, exterior lighting; and GeoEngineers, geotechnical advisor.
Artwork was done by Kim Hall, Anna Sher and Chris Daly.
