The second building in the Terrace Station Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a six story mixed-use apartment building in Mountlake Terrace, Washington.
Referenced as Building 2 during construction, the now completed Terrace Station East features an indoor gathering space with outdoor lounge area, including covered seating, TV, kitchen and barbeques. In addition, in Terrace Station East there is a roof top deck with barbeques and fire pits, a dog exercise and relief area, and a multi-purpose sports cage. At street level, the residents have access to flexible work and conference spaces. Each building has a 24-hour fitness center plus a dedicated yoga studio, dog wash station and several walking trails nearby.
In additional to breathtaking views, the 168 residential units have an expansive list of unique features, including high vaulted ceilings with clerestory windows that bring in ample daylight and ventilation year-round into all spaces. A unique feature to Terrace Station East, are built-in pot racks located above kitchen sinks which complement the ample storage and stylish built-in shelving and cabinetry.
Tenants and the public will be able to utilize 16,000 square feet of ground floor retail, which currently includes a Zeek's Pizza.
The project approached sustainable design using the Integrated Design Process and included energy, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing consultants right from the start. STC 40 rated ECO windows were used for the project on all exterior walls that would be impacted by the noise from Light Link Rail and I-5. The building orientation, window placements and sizes were maximized for both daylight and ventilation. The number of Electric Vehicle charging stations installed set a milestone record for multi-family buildings in the Pacific Northwest and are expected to reduce carbon emissions. Tenants were provided ample bike storage rooms for both short- and long-term use. The complex has bike routes connecting to bike trails around the area and to retail shopping and the nearby transit station.
Completed in 2021, Van Ry Boulevard runs between Terrace Station East and West, complete with sidewalk and bike lanes which provide a much-needed connection from the Gateway Plaza retail area at 236th to Sound Transit’s Mountlake Terrace Light Rail Station and I-5, alleviating traffic congestion and providing an alternate route.
