Station at Othello Park opens near rail station


Othello Partners recently opened the Station at Othello Park, a 351-unit mixed-use apartment building across from the Othello Link light-rail station, at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Othello Street.

Tenants began moving into the building last month. The apartments are 15 percent leased, and include studios and one- and two-bedroom floorplans.

The 420,000-square-foot project houses 20,000 square feet of retail space and below-grade parking for 307 vehicles. The retail has 12 storefronts, which have not been leased.

For residents, the building has community areas such as a fitness center, a common room, an “amenity room” with a covered patio, and a 7,500-square-foot rooftop deck. The project was designed to receive a LEED silver rating.

East of the apartments is the 7.6-acre Othello Park and Playground.

Hinthorne Mott Architects designed the project, and Exxel Pacific was the general contractor. Lair Design was the interior designer, and Karen Kiest Landscape Architecture was the landscape architect.

Commercial Development and Consulting is handling retail leasing, and Pinnacle is in charge of residential leasing. USAA Real Estate Services Co. is the financial partner for the developer, Othello Partners.
