Seattle has long been the largest city in the state of Washington, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Andersen Construction is now at work on Kinects, a project that will connect the city’s South Lake Union neighborhood with the downtown area, Project Manager Yates Osborn says.

“[Kinects will fill] a gap in the Seattle landscape,” he says, noting that the project consists of a 41-story apartment tower. Andersen Construction serves as the general contractor on the $110 million project for developer Security Properties.

When finished, Kinects will feature 357 high-end living units that range from studio apartments to two-bedroom penthouses that span approximately 1,700 square feet. “That’s what people seem to want these days,” Osborn observes.

Kinects also will be set apart by features such as an indoor pool on its top floor “enclosed with full-height vision glass on three sides,” he says. The tower also will have outdoor terraces on its sixth and 41st floors.
