Issaquah Highlands Self-Storage Building

We recently finished a new self storage building in Issaquah located at 910 NE High Street. The building stands 6-stories (68,700 S.F.) and contains a leasing office, hundreds of storage spaces of various sizes, and a separate retail space on the ground floor. The building was fitted onto a narrow site that is roughly 50ft. x 250ft. The nature of this site lead to some creative design solutions, such as a cantilever along the street side, that was necessary to fit everything into the building that was desired. To date this is the tallest building that we have designed here at Magellan Architects!

The general contractor for this project was Foushee and Associates and the architectural design for the most part was a collaborative effort from multiple people at our firm. Below is a couple of pictures showing the erection of some large concrete tilt up panels.

where have we been?

If you call the office and can’t get ahold of a Magellan Associate, its likely that we’re at a site visit. Especially with summer and the nice weather in the Pacific Northwest wrapping up, a lot of crews are working to get finished. Here are some photos from site visits this week:

Green Roof goes in at PSE Factoria

This is an exciting day for Magellan, Puget Sound Energy, and the City of Bellevue. This is the first green roof designed by Magellan and installed on a PSE facility. It is also *one of the first* green roofs in the City of Bellevue (We tried to be the first, but i believe were beat by Bellevue Towers).

More pictures to follow of the roof fully vegetated. Enjoy!
