Designed by Mithun, the 12-story Mosler Lofts were the first LEED Silver certified condos in Seattle. An example of how to create value through innovative, sustainable design beyond an initial development vision, this development was 90% sold within the first 6 months on the market due to its highly sustainable features and contemporary design. Mosler Lofts features natural ventilation and daylighting strategies, low VOC finishes, and a green roof that filters rainwater while creating a gathering place for residents. Two-story townhouses on the street level integrate the Lofts with the culture and activity of the Belltown neighborhood, bringing city life into the naturally lit spaces. Extensive glazing maximizes passive heating. Operable Energy Star windows, patio doors, shading from balconies, and interior sunshades temper summer heat gain. Every residence has individual control of its heating and cooling. CO2 sensors control ventilation in the units and parking garage. The roof is super-insulated (R-45) and contains extensive planting areas. Ten-foot-tall windows allow maximum daylight. Occupancy sensors control lighting. Compact fluorescent fixtures are used throughout the public corridors. LED lights are used for exterior lighting. The building incorporates high efficiency boilers and a reduced energy elevator, and purchases renewable green power. View more View full description
