Journey to the Center of the Universe with Tableau, Weber Thompson & The Masonry
Fri, Jul 20 from 4pm - 6pm
Located in the so-called ‘Center of the Universe,’ DATA 1 is a new commercial office building that’s home to Tableau’s offices and a host of local retailers. On Friday, July 20th attendees will go behind the scenes with the design team of this new, highly-sustainable office building and enjoy drinks and appetizers at The Masonry following the tour.
A LEED Gold for Core and Shell project, the building features operable windows, castellated beams for air flow and daylight, exterior window shades, an enclosed courtyard, and ambitious water-scrubbing landscaping. Tour-goers will get to see inside Tableau’s LEED Gold offices, check out the courtyard, and soak in views from the roof deck. Outside the building, attendees will learn about the bioswales along the east edge of the site that retain and treat rainwater runoff from Troll Avenue and the Aurora Bridge. This on-site treatment cleans water prior to discharge in Lake Union, and has spurred a larger stormwater cleanup effort around the lake.
