Address: 1330 N 90th Street, Seattle
The seven existing Wilson-Pacific buildings will be torn down and replaced with a new elementary school building and a new middle school building. The middle school building will also house a K-8 program.
Replace the current facility with a new elementary school building and a new middle school building. The existing 110,000-square-foot, 1950’s buildings for Wilson-Pacific School will be demolished to make way for the new schools. The existing Native American murals by artist Andrew Morrison will be detached, stored and reinstalled onto both the new middle school and elementary school buildings.
The new Cascadia Elementary School will accommodate up to 660 students for Seattle Public School’s Highly Capable Cohort (formerly known as APP), currently located at the former Lincoln High School. The school will be approximately 91,000 square feet and will front on North 90th Street and Wallingford Avenue North.
The new Robert Eagle Staff Middle School will accommodate up to 850 middle school students, most of whom will be drawn from surrounding north Seattle neighborhoods, as well as some middle-school age APP students. The Licton Springs K-8 program, which is also temporarily located at the former Lincoln High School, will be co-located within the middle school building and include up to 150 students. The combined total building area for both programs is approximately 140,000 square feet. The middle school will front on North 90th Street and Stone Way North. The current playfields will be relocated as a shared resource between the two schools and will also continue to provide community access.
Both school buildings will be constructed using precast concrete panels with fiber cement board walls, glazing and membrane roofing on the exterior enclosures supported by steel framing.
Energy efficiency will be achieved through optimum daylighting, thermally efficient fiberglass windows, LED lighting fixtures, and low maintenance mechanical and plumbing systems.
