Harvard & Highland

Harvard & Highland is a unique group of 38 condominium homes in five buildings; (97,000 square feet) nestled in the historic Harvard-Belmont District on Seattle’s North Capitol Hill.  The project features concrete, steel and masonry construction for added durability and beauty.   Each unit features nine foot high “coffered ceilings”. The main structural challenge was to accommodate a unique load path configuration that would not interfere with the architect’s vision of an early 20th century style masonry building.

The common below grade structural system for the buildings at Harvard & Highland consist of a cast in place concrete parking structure that utilizes high strength steel; reinforced in the slabs, columns, beams and walls.  The above grade residential floor system consists of 7.5 inch slabs of steel and reinforced post tensioned concrete.
