2017 Vision Award for Leadership - Union Stables, Lease Crutcher Lewis


The Union Stables project is being recognized as a major renovation of a historic building. Located in Belltown and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Union Stables originally housed 300 horses used to pull streetcars and fire engines. 

Sustainability and historic preservation were core concerns of this project. The building has achieved a 70% reduction in energy use below the national baseline and through a combination of low-flow fixtures and a green roof is managing a combined 52% in potable water and stormwater. It has also achieved a measurable reduction in transportation emissions. Lease Crutcher Lewis is also a Salmon-Safe accredited construction company.
