Ever since he was in high school, Bob Tiscareno has been designing buildings—in fact, his first design, for a transit station in Lemon Grove, CA, won a design award and actually got built. Whether it’s a transit oriented master plan, a luxury urban high-rise, multifamily housing, or a bustling transit station, he believes that no design is done until it brings value to its client, unity to its neighborhood, and pleasure to its users and community.
Evidence of his design vision for growing cities, shaping communities, and suiting projects to their environments can be found throughout the greater Seattle area. Thousands of people a day commute easily through invigorating transit-oriented developments such as Kent Station in Kent, 130th Station in Seattle, and the Redmond Square Transit Oriented Development. His master plans for sites such as Mill Creek Town Center, Redmond’s River Park Masterplan, and The Queen Anne Collection deftly integrate business, retail, and housing, a locale’s natural environs, pedestrian engagement, and a phased approach to a client’s long-term goals. Some of his high-visibility residential projects include The Danforth on First Hill, Modera Ballard, Infinity Shore Club Condos on Alki Beach, Metro 112 in Bellevue, and the Beam in the International District.
Bob’s talent for creative spatial problem-solving and his ability to deliver a broad vision at human scale has won recognition from many organizations, including NAIOP, American Institute of Architects, and Gold Nugget Awards. Most recently, The Triangle at Redmond was winner of NAIOP’s “Multi-Family Residential Suburban Development of the Year” in the 2019 Night of the Stars. He also earned the Multifamily Executive Awards 2018 Grand Award, Green Design category, for The Cove apartments, a project whose sustainable units have sold for the highest price/square feet in Seattle.
Bob holds a Master of Architecture in Urban Design from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Southern California. He has served on the Urban Land Institute’s Northwest District Multifamily Council and has been published in the Puget Sound Business Journal, Daily Journal of Commerce, Multi-family Executive Magazine, and many other real estate media. He founded Tiscareno Associates in 2002 after holding several leadership roles at LMN Architects
