A fresh new Shea Properties development in North Seattle incorporates natural elements

Waypoint was very pleased to continue our work with Shea Properties on their newest Pacific Northwest development, Edgepoint Apartments, a 203-unit mixed-used development in the Greenwood neighborhood of North Seattle. The building, which will complete in the late summer of 2021, is targeting LEED Homes Silver certification and includes features such as bioretention planters, a green roof and solar panels. The building’s natural views of the Olympic and Cascade mountains add to its sustainable character and embrace a Pacific Northwest ethos. To support the project’s fresh and modern vibe, Waypoint designed signage featuring natural maple wood. Waypoint provided wayfinding (including ADA and code signage), exterior/project ID and marketing signage for this beautiful project. In addition, Waypoint provided retail signage guidelines to ensure that tenant signage is consistent with the exterior building design intent. Runberg Architecture Group was the building architect and Rush Construction was the general contractor.

Code signage can be interesting!

Signage for amenity spaces included extra thick raised lettering to highlight these areas.

Unit IDs are simple yet stunning, including a natural maple wood and a painted acrylic all mounted on a clear acrylic panel. Raised numbers add to the impact of the signs.

While materials remained consistent across the signage palette, varied geometry added to the visual interest.

Wayfinding kept simple, but elegant.
