The StoneCrest research and Development Park was a master-planned, long-range project scheduled to produce 4 units on terraced, hillside sites. The New York firm of Edward Larrabee Barnes and Associates completed the master plan in 1990, designed to be completed over 20 years. John Lee was the Partner in Charge. Sadler and Associates collaborated as Associated Architects on the plan. Michael Timchula, Associate in Charge, and Michael Barratt as the Project Architect also were heavily involved the master plan. (Barratt was also the Project Architect for Barnes's Allen Library at the University of Washington completed in 1990.) The first terraced unit was finished in 1991, with David Wallance supervising work as the Project Architect.

The StoneCrest development would create 4 million square feet of hotel, retail and office space on a 300-acre parcel. New light-rail and highway interchanges would be constructed to serve the sprawling complex. The architects described the entire conception: "Four bold, eye-shaped terraces step down the hill. The first terrace, with green-glass circular office towers, has been completed and rented." (See Edward Larrabee Barnes Architect, [New York: Rizzoli, 1994], p.250.)
