Located in the heart of West Seattle, Mural Apartments was designed to be a tribute to the 11 historical murals celebrating West Seattle’s heritage. The seven-story, wood-framed residential structure with a concrete podium has 136 units with ground floor retail space and two levels of underground parking. Located adjacent to several retail centers and on major bus routes, Mural was designed as a walking community. The building steps back at the street level to create an expansive pedestrian plaza with planters and landscaped terraces along the building’s face that add to the pedestrian experience. The large planters assist with stormwater management by naturally cleansing runoff prior to infiltrating and recharging the underlying soils. The pedestrian experience is further enhanced by a through-block connection helping to unite and revitalize the neighborhood.
