The newly constructed Greenfire campus in Ballard includes a five-story apartment building with 18 homes and a four-story, 18,000-sf office building with retail on the ground floor. Where other recent projects in Ballard have maximized the amount of square footage, this developer has built just what was desired and provided large amounts of open space in the form of wetlands and P-patches.
Seattle Greendrinks has announced a tour of the campus on Wednesday, June 5, from 7:00pm-8:30pm
This talk, by architect Ray Johnston, will cover some of the project’s many green features, including ground-source heat pumps, solar panels, rainwater collection, grey water reuse, green roof with edible and native plants, locally sourced recyclable materials, extensive daylighting, hydronic heating and cooling, exterior solar shades, and community recreation spaces.
Don’t miss the chance to tour this cutting-edge, LEED Platinum building. Questions encouraged!
