Weber Thompson, HBA design mixed-use Arrivé tower in Seattle

The Arrivé tower has opened as a newest mixed-use property in Seattle. In addition to 344 apartment units, Arrivé also includes The Sound Hotel, part of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. Its 142 guestrooms occupy the first 10 floors of the 43-story building. The hotel has the ground level restaurant Currant Bistro and the Caffe Umbria coffee bar.

For meetings, the hotel's 7th floor offers the Lupine Room, which has 770 square feet of divisible meeting space for groups of up to 35, as well as Sound Bite Lounge, post-meeting gathering spot with outdoor seating and views of the Space Needle.

The Sound Hotel is the first Tapestry Collection by Hilton on the West Coas and will be managed by The Hotel Group.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

The 43-story Arrivé was developed by Hangzhou, China-based Binjiang Real Estate Group and Las Vegas, Nevada-based The Molasky Group of Companies. The general contractor was Denver, Colo.-based PCL, while the architect was Weber Thompson from Seattle. The Los Angeles office of Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) created the décor at Arrivé. 

According to David Watkins, GM of The Sound Hotel, the hotel's design drew directly from the Belltown neighborhood's roots in the arts and local music scene, mixed in with the natural beauty of the Puget Sound region.

Energy efficient lighting is used throughout the building, which is targeting LEED Silver certification.
