  • Construction began on August 22, 1997.
  • The roofing system consists of ballasted and fully-adhered single ply roofing.
  • The stepped-back base and the multi-planar design were partially planned to avoid shadows falling over the whole Pioneer Square; Pioneer Square is located to the northeast of the building.
