Greenlake Micro-Apartments


Building: 4-Stories,  76 units – a mix of one bedroom units & efficiency dwelling units, basement bike storage & maintenance, dog run, courtyard and rooftop garden.

Lot size: 15,375 SF

The site is located on the south side of Aurora-Licton Neighborhood within the Urban Village Boundary. The neighborhood has an eclectic mix of architecture from various time periods, with no focus on one architectural typology. The location provides easy access to downtown Seattle, University of Washington, Green Lake, The Woodland Park Zoo, and Shoreline Community College.

Micro-housing is a new trend developing to accommodate growth. Small-scale living within a community atmosphere provides students, recent graduates, commuters, young professionals, and seniors the opportunity to live affordably in urban areas.

The proposal includes a mix of single bedroom and efficiency dwelling units. To complement the culture of outdoor enthusiasts living in the area, bicycle storage and repair facilities will be located on the basement level. Each unit has a private bathroom, personal kitchenette, and an over-sized bay window. Shared residential amenity areas will enhance and foster a social atmosphere within the complex and neighborhood.
