Located in downtown Seattle, this 15-story, 112-unit residential project is more than just Seattle's greenest apartment building and the world's first net zero apartment high-rise (as certified by the International Future Living Institute) -- 303 Battery (aka Third & Battery) also represents the innovative and tenacious spirit of its design team.
