2 hotels, Aloft and Element, share one Redmond building

CSM Corp., a hotel and commercial real estate developer based in Minneapolis, has opened two hotels — Aloft and Element— in one seven-story building in Redmond.

The duel-branded development at 5220 N.E. Shen St. includes the 150-room Aloft Seattle Redmond, and the 131-room Element Seattle Redmond. Located close to Microsoft’s campus, the hotels were designed to be stylish and technically advanced, and attract both business and personal travelers.

CSM says this is the firm’s first dual-branded Aloft/Element property.

The hotels share 7,600 square feet of event space, seven meeting rooms, a saline pool and large fitness center. There is also a courtyard and patio, and guest laundry.

Aloft is a Starwood-brand hotel that is designed to offer a tech-forward, modern experience. The Element Hotels brand is aimed at extended-stay travelers, with a focus on sustainable materials, bright design and natural light.

Ankrom Moisan Architects is the architect of record and interior designer. It was built by Absher Construction.

Other members of the project team include Emerald City Engineers, MEP engineer; Allana Buick & Bers, building envelope and energy consultant; Swenson Say Faget, structural engineer; Coughlin Porter Lundeen, civil engineer; Lighting Designs Inc., lighting design; Brumbaugh and Assoc., landscape design; and Aon Fire Protection, fire protection engineer.
