Case Studies

We highlight three projects that faced unique challenges to illustrate West77 Partners’ commitment to successful outcomes for our contracting partners, lenders and investors. ​

Ultimately each case study is a testament to the culture of West77 Partners, the commitment to hands-on leadership of our executive team and an appreciation for our responsibility to be ardent stewards of our investor’s capital.

Team Experience

West77 professionals bring a host of experience and backgrounds that bolster our perspective as we approach new projects. With a robust history in high-rise, urban infill projects, we have developed a skill set that anticipates problems within even the most complex projects. This has enabled us to navigate different market and project related challenges proficiently over the years.​

We must emphasize that West77 Partners cannot take credit as an organization for any of the following projects. However, our professionals were involved in their development or construction such that we feel it is instructive of the quality and complexity of projects that the West77 Partners team is capable of pursuing. While West77 Partners has no immediate intention to develop the next Amazon Campus or high-rise condominium, our professionals’ involvement in their creation demonstrates the level of expertise carried on our team – especially when considering the type and nature of developments typically undertaken by West77 Partners.

We are strong believers that “the only source of knowledge is experience” – Albert Einstein. We underscore the following projects to highlight our professional’s experience. ​

Washinton Square Condos

Washington Square Condos Bellevue, WA

The project was completed in 2008 and is comprised of 353 high rise condominiums across two separate towers, 26 urban townhomes, 10,000 square feet of retail and an underground parking garage consisting of over 750 stalls. Mr. Nielson served as the Managing Director of this project managing acquisition of the land, entitlements, design, construction, and the ultimate sale of all 379 units.

Amazon Campus

Amazon Campus Seattle, WA

The creation of Amazon’s new campus began in 2012 and produced millions of square feet of office and meeting spaces. The multi-tower developments changed Seattle’s skyline and became the home for one of our Worlds most recognizable and utilized brands. Their campus offers office space, eateries, and unique employee amenities like the Spheres – an iconic getaway for employees that features terrariums of rare plants and multiple water features. The challenges this project presented were significant, yet its realization marked an amazing testament to the benefits of team collaboration, creativity and world-class engineering.​

The project sits on a 12-acre parcel that includes office space, meeting and convening areas, a visitor center, large atrium, and a data center. Further, the ownership, design and construction team understood the important opportunity this campus had to embrace sustainable building practices and was able to achieve a LEED Platinum certification through thoughtful design, procurement and management strategies.​
