The Lurana, located on Olympia’s beautiful waterfront, consists of 44 residential flat apartments and ground floor retail including a restaurant, a confectionery, office space, and a large waterfront plaza for outdoor dining and entertainment.
Due to the building location waterward of the adjacent street, height and lot occupancies retractions required a creative approach to ensure the development met the owner’s and community’s requirements. Close work with the City of Olympia and TAS’s design consultants realized the potential of a site full of constraints and hidden opportunities. Further site complications related to the City-owned solid waste lift station required additional cooperation with local public works departments to ensure pedestrian circulation and safety. Public art, openness, and water-dependent uses helped to ensure a successful project for the community and tenants.
