Vibrant Cities Wins 2020 GRAND PRIX Award
Cove, Vibrant Cities' building in Capitol Hill, wins the 2020 Grand Prix of Real Estate Award.
This mixed-use residential project realized developer Vibrant Cities’ vision of sustainable living in Seattle’s dense urban core. Designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, The Cove saves up to 30% in energy costs. Sustainable features include renewable bamboo siding, an energy-efficient mechanical systems, ENERGY star appliances, LED light fixtures, triple-pane tilt-turn windows, and a 3,000-square-foot “eco-roof” which provides both aesthetic appeals to the outdoor common area and optimal storm-water management. Solar panels contribute both to the energy production and the practical design of the project. While typically located on the roof, they hang from the south side of the building at The Cove, freeing up space on the roof for common area amenities. Clad in a bold pattern, accented with metal fins undulating in and out of a smooth crisp cement-panel facade, The Cove’s dynamic, innovative design pays homage to the Pacific Northwest’s lush natural surroundings and maritime environment.
