Seattle — The 20-story building marks the first “ground-up” project since 1921 for the 100-year-old Seattle arts college.
Cornish Commons, the new residence hall and academic building being developed for Cornish College of the Arts, is on schedule for a fall 2015 opening. Construction topped out with the pouring of the roof slab in January. The next milestone for the project will be completion of the building enclosure, which will occur in March.
The 20-story building marks the first “ground-up” project since 1921 for the 100-year-old Seattle arts college. Located on Cornish’s campus in downtown Seattle, the building will serve as Cornish’s “living room” as well as a residence hall, with studio spaces, a fireside lounge, and Student Life offices on the first two floors. The project is being developed by Capstone Development Partners with Ankrom Moisan Architects and Howard S Wright as design builder. Capstone and Cornish broke ground on the project in March 2014. Cornish Commons will open its doors to students in September 2015.
