The George F. Russell Jr. Hall is a six-story 64,000 square foot mixed use project that houses office, retail, apartments and parking. This project also has a LEED Silver designation.
Russell Hall is a top-tier building with some excellent green, sustainable features. Designed to fit the University District character and community, Russell Hall has an incredibly beautiful brick, precast and ground face façade. With over 90,000 pieces of brick, the unique combination of these three materials makes this building even more awe inspiring. The construction of this building had its difficulties with keeping adjacent businesses open during construction.
