This is a better work day

We believe workplaces should be connective, comfortable and promote health and wellness.

Don’t just learn, experience.
Don’t just read, absorb.
Don’t just change, transform.
Don’t just relate, advocate.
Don’t just promise, prove.
Don’t just criticize, encourage.
Don’t just think, ponder.
Don’t just take, give.
Don’t just see, feel.
Don’t just dream, do.
Don’t just hear, listen.
Don’t just talk, act.
Don’t just tell, show.
Don’t just exist, live.

2-tower office project aims to write new chapter for Seattle's U-District

Marc Stiles, Puget Sound Business Journal

"The companies have named the project the Chapter Buildings. That's a nod to the influence of academia on the neighborhood as well as the district, which is starting a new chapter as a high-rise neighborhood resulting from the landmark zoning changes the city approved three years ago... The Chapter Buildings project will be the first opportunity for major employers to locate near the University of Washington in 'world-class' office space."
