Festival registration is open! Design Week 2020 runs virtually from August 3-7.
ABOUT THE TOUR: Join us for a walking tour of the newly constructed B76 commercial building. Come gain insight to our design process, learn about the new CLT structural system and innovative construction methods used to bring this building to life.
ABOUT THE BUILDING: B76 was designed as a working class building aimed at public transportation connectivity, pedestrian openness, and bicycle priority access. It is positioned centrally in the new eastside community envisioned by the Burnside Bridgehead Framework plan. The ground floor will be activated by storefront along third avenue and work space above. This new building program will also reintegrate a pedestrian stair down from the Burnside Bridge level to third avenue akin to the original stairs that previously existed.
This wedge shaped 20,000 sq ft building will feature a new CLT structural system with open ground level commuter oriented retail environments for daily guests and tenants. The workspace above will be wrapped in brick masonry with the building acting as an anchor for the Burnside Bridge and a gateway to the eastside community.
WHO IS THE TOUR FOR? Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this uniquely constructed building. Professionals, students, design enthusiasts... all are welcomed!
