What a difference a year makes. JTM Construction a year ago was struggling to get concrete to The Jack office building project as the countywide concrete strike by Teamsters Local 174 dragged on. Fast forward to last weekend and crews were removing the tower crane that had stood at the site since late October of 2021.

The 145,500-square-foot building at 74 S. Jackson St. in Seattle will be finished this summer. The eight-story building will have floor plates of about 22,000 square feet and a 16,000-square-foot landscaped rooftop terrace and amenity space. About 9,500 square feet of retail is planned for the ground level.

The project will have a large, canted light well that will bring natural light into the space. Its side core design will result in open floor plates with enhanced views of the waterfront across Alaskan Way. A below-grade garage will have 42 parking stalls. Secure bike storage and locker rooms will be on the first level.

Seattle architect Olson Kundig designed the building to meet LEED Gold certification standards. Coughlin Porter Lundeen is the structural engineer. JLL is brokering the space.
