Design/build signage for a safe harbor on the shores of Lake Union

Waypoint was delighted to work with our excellent development partner, Shea Properties on their 296-unit multi-family development Leeward. Named for its east-facing view on the shores of Lake Union, Leeward is an amenity rich development that mixes cues from the neighborhood’s industrial heritage with modernity, a nod to the tech giants that surround the building. The building signage speaks to this mash-up by introducing a modern design that leverages metal with historic patina and crisp acrylic. The Waypoint team provided full design/build services for Leeward, completing the design, permitting, fabrication and installation of wayfinding, code, ADA, exterior¬† and marketing signage. Ankrom Moisan was the architect for the development and Exxel Pacific was the general contractor.
