SEATTLE—A local developer is leasing apartments in a new 118-unit property described as the first residential building in the city to completely mitigate its construction and ongoing carbon footprint.
The development, named Stream Uptown, is in the Uptown section of the lower Queen Anne neighborhood. It features apartments ranging in size from 541 to 855 square feet, with rents starting at $1,132, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
“We are excited to offer residents a community that emphasizes sustainable living,” Marc Angelillo, of developer Stream Real Estate LLC, stated in a news release. “Our focus as a company and developer is to create market rate units that push the envelope on sustainability while remaining economically viable.”
Green features include rooftop solar panels, a reverse-cycle chiller, use of efficient green materials and fixtures, bicycle storage, and a location within walking distance of shopping, dining, jobs and public transportation. The developers are also offsetting the carbon impact by planting 600 trees in Magnuson Park, through a partnership with the new Seattle-based Forterra C3 Program. Amenities include a fitness center, yoga studio, rooftop lounge and terrace with a barbeque. Some apartments have plank flooring and balconies. The building was designed by NK Architects, Seattle.
