SeaLevel Properties Break Ground on 60-Unit Union Street Apartments in Seattle’s Capitol Hill


Seattle, WA (May 24, 2019) — Local multi-family builder SeaLevel Properties (www.sealevelproperties.com) announced the start of construction at the Union Street Apartments, a new 60-unit mixed-use residential building in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Featuring a mix of one-bedroom and small efficiency dwelling units, along with more than 4,400+ sq. ft. of commercial space, the building is located at 953 E. Union Street just blocks from the Capitol Hill Light Rail Station. The project is slated for completion in summer 2020.

“This is a great site for transit-focused residential in the heart of the neighborhood,” said SeaLevel Properties Director John Shaw. “We look forward to showcasing our commitment to enhancing the community through superior quality, attention to detail and thoughtful development.”  

Focused around a ‘classic-meets-modern design,’ the Union Street Apartments will evoke an early 1900’s sophistication through its all brick-exterior, elegant lobby and rooftop deck with views of the Cascades and Space Needle.

The two commercial spaces feature lofty 13-foot ceilings and expansive windows optimizing natural light.  The corner retail unit consists of 1,993 sq. ft., an outdoor dining area and visibility from three streets (Union, 10th Ave and Broadway Court). The second space has 2,437 sq. ft., which includes both a ground level and attached lower level space. The two can also be combined for a total of 4,430 sq. ft.

Primary project team members include SeaLevel Properties (Developer), STS Construction Services (General Contractor) and Grouparchitect (Architect). Companies interested in leasing the retail spaces may contact Brokers Keenan Van Gaver or Tiffini Connell at West coast Commercial Realty. 

In addition to the Union Street Apartments, SeaLevel has numerous projects underway or completed in Seattle and the surrounding region, including the new two building, 266-unit Everett Waterfront Apartments in the Port of Everett’s 65-acre Waterfront Place Development, the 14-Unit UW 19th Townhomes, 5-Unit UW 18thTownhomes and the 64-unit U20 Apartments (University District), the 110-unit at Vale Apartments (Issaquah), and 92 units at SAMM Apartments (Sammamish).
