YMSA USA LLC wants to build a complex at 1307 Harbor Ave. S.W. in West Seattle that will have executive apartments, office space and a design center for a Korean manufacturer of sports gear and apparel. YMSA is an entity of Youngone Corp. of South Korea, a manufacturer and distributor of sports gear and outdoor apparel that was founded in 1974. In Korea, Youngone is the distributor for Nike, The North Face, Puma and other brands. The Korea Economic Daily says Youngone is the country’s largest outdoor gear purveyor.
The six-story complex would have north and south stacks above a podium level. The north stack would house 15 residential units, and the south stack would be office space. They both would be set back from the street, with a corner knocked off the south facade to create a large deck on the third level. Parking for 27 vehicles would be above grade.
Miller Hull is the design architect, and Rhodes Architecture + Light is the architect of record.
