The Rush Companies and Pastakia + Associates last month broke ground on Woodland, a mixed-use development at 9039 Greenwood Ave. N. in Seattle, where a Volunteers of America office once stood.

When complete next summer, the 106,300-square-foot building will have 78 apartments and six live-work spaces on six floors over two levels of concrete parking garage with 59 stalls. There will be 35 open one-bedroom units of 646 square feet, 21 one-bedroom units of 663 square feet, and 22 two-bedroom units with two baths at 974 square feet. Live-work units will be 1,081 square feet with one bedroom and one bath. There also will be a single guest studio of 640 square feet.

Residents will have rooftop amenity space, an exercise room, community kitchen, bike storage and maintenance facilities, and a dog wash. A lobby and resident lounge will be on the ground floor. Street-level patios will be built at the entrances to the live-work units.

Rush Commercial Construction, a division of the Rush Companies, is using panelized wood framing and cast-in-place concrete with post-tensioned concrete decks for the building.
