Schnitzer West Constructs Its Third Large-Scale Office Tower Featuring View Smart Windows


BELLEVUE, Wash. and MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — View, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) (“View”), the leader in smart building technologies, today announced its smart windows will be installed at The Artise, a 605,000-square-foot Class-A office building in Bellevue, Washington. The building has been entirely preleased to Amazon as part of the company’s plan to bring 25,000 jobs to Bellevue.

The Artise is Schnitzer West’s third project with View, following Denver’s The Current, River North and Civica Cherry Creek, the latter of which recently sold at a record-breaking price. View Smart Windows will be installed throughout the building to help Schnitzer West deliver an exceptional tenant experience and achieve its sustainability goals. The Artise is designed to meet LEED Gold standards.

View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to the sun to minimize heat and glare and eliminate the need for blinds, maximizing natural light and views of the outdoors.

“View is an integral part of our strategy to deliver a best-in-class experience for our tenants,” said Zeb Keck, Director of Construction & Development of Schnitzer West, LLC. “Following positive tenant feedback on the features in our recent Denver developments, we are excited to once again team with View — this time to create a vibrant environment for Amazon employees here in the Puget Sound.”

View Smart Windows have been shown to generate significant health benefits for building occupants. In a recent study, employees working next to View Smart Windows improved their sleep by 37 minutes per night, experienced half as many headaches, and were 14% more productive than those working next to standard windows with blinds. Additionally, buildings with View Smart Windows consume up to 20% less energy for lighting and HVAC.

“Buildings of the future will be focused on people and the planet, with every aspect designed to optimize occupant health and sustainability,” said Sri Venkat, Vice President at View. “We’re thrilled to once again partner with Schnitzer West to accelerate the digital transformation of the workplace and deliver a state-of-the-art office where Amazon employees will thrive.”
