The Main Apartments + Lofts is a mixed-use workforce housing anchor for downtown Sumner with a small-town community feel and views of Mt. Rainier. The 94K SF residential/retail development includes 186 parking spaces, 1600 square feet of retail, a possible café space with outdoor seating along with 108 apartments in seven buildings, many of them flexibly designed for future retail conversion. It was critical to mitigate the visual impact of this large mixed-use project by providing several small-scale buildings rather than a single podium-style structure that would be out of scale with its surroundings. Slanted roofs, materials that incorporate the character of Sumner, and large amounts of open and green space were incorporated to preserve the small-town feel. The project is the first residential development in 20 years on Main Street with visibility that makes it highly important to its community.
