2+U is a 686,000 SF, 38-story retail, office, and arts-and-culture project in the heart of downtown Seattle. Skanska engaged community stakeholders in the planning stages of the project to create a building that adds immediate value
to the tenants and the surrounding community. 2+U is lifted 85 feet off the ground at the highest point to create an outdoor Urban Village situated under the building featuring retail, an activated center square and public space.
