Located at the corner of 17th Avenue and 8th Street SW, a gateway intersection in the heart of Uptown 17th, Hanson Square offers a contemporary complement to the architecture of the surrounding community. On the exterior, the tiered design aims to minimize the visual massing and maintain the pedestrian scale along 17th Avenue. 

The use of traditional materials synthesizes with the existing streetscape, while the sleek glazing panels add a punch of contemporary style. The building lobby and other public interior spaces are designed as an urban compliment to the architecture.
