Belltown high-rise offers 344 residences and 142-room hotel with downtown Seattle views.

Seattle, Washington (February 12, 2019) – PCL Construction Services, Inc., The Molasky Group and Binjiang Tower Corp., along with the rest of the project team, will celebrate the grand opening of the Arrivé mixed-use tower on February 26th, 2019. This new 43-story tower features 344 residential units, The Sound Hotel, a lounge, and bar.  

Located at 2116 4th Avenue next to the landmark Cinerama theater in Belltown, the 569,000-square-foot tower was designed by Weber Thompson, the architect of record, with interior design by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), and built by general contractor PCL Construction. This cast-in-placeconcrete tower includes seven levels of below-grade parking, six elevators, and multiple levels of amenities that serve either the hotel pa trons, building residents, or both. The structure was designed with energy efficient lighting and is targeting a LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. 

“We are extremely proud to offer Arrivé to the Seattle residential market,” said Mike Doran, vice president of development and construction for The Molasky Group of Companies. “Arrivé offers exceptional living in the heart of the city where it’s within walking distance to great restaurants, Belltown nightlife, and iconic Seattle attractions.” 

The residential floors of the tower on levels 11 through 41 feature amenities such as keyless entry, air conditioning, quartz surfaces, and modern kitchens with professional appliances. The units are designed to maximize city and water views with large windows. Select residences include private terraces, walk-in closets, and smartphone-controlled lighting, thermostats, and window treatments. The units are managed by Blanton Turner and are currently available for lease.  

Residents have access to the amenity space that offers a full kitchen, media room, indoor lounge, and an outdoor entertaining and barbecue area on the roof top. There is also a dog walking and grooming area, lobby coffee bar, gym, yoga studio, as well as the hotel lounge, bar, and conference room spaces. 

Located on levels 2 through 10 is The Sound Hotel, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton, is a 142-room hotel managed by The Hotel Group. Its “sound” theme pays homage to the musical history of the Seattle area. Views from the hotel levels of the building that face the Cinerama property will see the commissioned painting by a local graffiti artist also celebrating the musical heritage of the area. The Sound Hotel opened for reservations beginning February 12th. Its amenities include meeting spaces, business services, a 24-hour fitness center, the Currant Bistro, and The Sound Bite. 

“I’m extremely proud of the entire team working together to overcome challenging obstacles and deliver this project with an aggressive schedule,” said Aaron Wiehe, vice president and district manager of PCL. “It was this team partnership that produced a beautiful building that brings vitality to the Belltown neighborhood and Seattle.” 

This project, formerly known as Potala Tower, broke ground in 2015 under previous ownership and was subsequently halted. In 2016, a new development partnership was formed by The Molasky Group and Binjiang Tower Corp. to restart the project. With some changes to the original plans, PCL resumed construction and has worked with the project partners to deliver the structure successfully.

The project team included: Weber Thompson Architecture, HBA Architecture, PCL Construction, Cary Kopczynski & Co., The Rushing Co., Holmberg Company, PSF Mechanical, Bergelectric, and Mehrer Drywall.
