A Seattle block bounded by Boren and Minor Avenues is receiving a significant density upgrade. Projects like the Kinects Tower on Stewart Street are extending the city core to the north, creating new neighbourhoods for people looking for an urban lifestyle. On the lot just beside the Kinects Tower, a mixed-use development now under construction promises to modernize the area.

Tilt 49 — a name referring to the alignment of the Denny Triangle neighbourhood relative to true north — will ultimately contain two distinct building uses. Mortenson Development and AMLI are developing a 37-storey residential tower with 410 apartments.

Touchstone is building the project's office component, which will assume the form of an 11-storey building. Containing nearly 300,000 square feet of Class A office space, Tilt 49's 1,600 square feet of retail looks to enhance the public realm. Designed by ZGF Architects, the tower offers blocks of uninterrupted vision glass to provide copious amounts of natural daylight.

A spacious outdoor deck on the ninth floor hosts abundant seating, landscaping, and a shelter for events and food facilities. Three enclosed pop-up spaces on the first floor, each measuring 200 square feet, provide impromptu places for meetings, exhibits, and other activities. For tenants seeking something larger and more permanent in nature, a 2,500-square-foot multipurpose room with operable partitions will also be provided.
