On June 25, 2015, Wood Partners’ Dimension Seattle high-rise was selected as a finalist for the Gold Nugget Awards — which are the oldest and most prestigious design awards in the nation and a centerpiece of PCBC. Recognizing those who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development, Gold Nugget Awards are open to builders, developers, architects, and land planners with communities and projects in the United States and all international countries.
The PCBC Gold Nugget Awards’ honorees all share one common denominator: excellence and innovation in addressing complex design/build issues, and recognizes only those projects that hit the mark in a number of ways. To learn more about this distinct project, please visit DimensionSeattle.com
8th + Hope, a 22-story, 290-unit ultra-modern luxury glass high-rise in downtown Los Angeles, received an Award of Merit in the category of Best Mixed-Use Project during the 2015 Gold Nugget Awards, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious design awards, during a ceremony at PCBC, the largest homebuilding trade show representing the Western United States, on Thursday, June 25.
An integral and award-winning part of downtown revitalization in Los Angeles– which has seen a surge of commercial and residential development as well as entertainment venues in recent years—8th + Hope is one of the first post-recession high-rise apartment buildings to be built and listed for sale in the area. The .7-acre complex commanded more money per square foot than any previous sales for multifamily projects in downtown Los Angeles when Wood Partners sold it to Essex Property Trust for $200 million in 2015. The Los Angeles Business Journal and Los Angeles Downtown News have recognized 8th + Hope as an important part of downtown L.A. revitalization.
