  • Seattle, Washington

Completed: 2021

The award-winning Orenda at Othello Square boasts affordable apartments with a unique amenity, Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic. The clinic is located on the first two floors of the building and addresses the medical needs of the nearby residents in the Othello neighborhood.

A new mixed-use development located in the Othello neighborhood of Seattle.  The seven-story building includes five levels of residential units above a 50,000 SF pediatric health clinic with one level of below-grade parking for the clinic’s use. The building also includes a waterproofed and landscaped podium deck and an occupied roof deck with a dog run.

4EA worked as the building enclosure consultant working with the architect and design team. Our focus was on the building enclosure assemblies which consisted of below-grade waterproofing, exterior insulated walls, storefront glazing, and low-slope roofing with decking and plantings, and lightweight cladding. 4EA collaborated with the design and construction team in creating an efficient and durable enclosure that will reduce operational energy costs. This has resulted in Orenda attaining LEED Gold Certification.
