Welcome to Seattle

Find your home in the Emerald City today. Home to big name companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Boeing, Seattle has become a major hub in the technology industry. Here, aerospace and software engineers live side by side my musicians, artists, and freelancers.

From high-rise downtown towers to waterfront views in Westlake, Holland Residential is proud to offer luxury apartment rentals all over Seattle. Moving from out of town? Check out our Seattle Moving Guide!


Studio apartments are one of the most affordable options for luxury city living at an affordable cost. Modern studio apartments shouldn’t be confused with micro apartments, which are typically much smaller and may not partition space in the same way. Studio apartments are great options for renters who like efficiency and economy in a home. Who enjoys living in a studio apartment, and what are some of the biggest benefits?

  • Lower heating and cooling costs.
  • Lower price to rent.
  • Easier to maintain and clean.
  • Cheaper to furnish.
  • Great for a Marie-Kondo lifestyle.
Good for:
  • People without a lot of stuff.
  • Anyone who likes being out more than in.
  • Those who like smaller spaces.
  • Storage gurus.
  • Residents who like multi-use rooms.

One-Bedroom Apartments

These are one of the most common apartment types. They’re rented most frequently by individuals and people who cohabitate and share a bedroom. The extra space an additional room affords can open living possibilities, especially for individuals who work from home, craft, or engage in other activities that need an independent area a studio unit can’t provide. Who likes 1-bedroom apartments best, and what are the benefits?

  • Room for a desk, vanity or other large furniture piece.
  • A separate sleeping area which can help with circadian rhythm regulation.
  • The ability to separate from a roommate.
  • Additional storage and more closet space.
  • More natural light in the entire apartment.
Good for:
  • People who don’t want single-room living.
  • Anyone with hobbies that require storage.
  • Resident that like a traditional apartment layout.
  • Those with noise or clutter-related sleeping difficulties.

Two-Bedroom Apartments

2-Bedroom apartments can provide a malleability you won’t find in other apartment types. They allow for multi-person apartment living or for those who choose to rent a two bedroom on their own, a variety of layout options that can incorporate a home office, gym, music studio, media room, game room, or guest room. So why do people choose a 2-bedroom unit, and how do they benefit?

  • More configurable than other apartment styles.
  • The choice of a bedroom and additional room.
  • The greatest amount of storage space.
  • Typically have larger living rooms.
  • Master bedrooms may have master bathrooms.
Good for:
  • Roommates or people who may look for one.
  • 3 or 4-person households living in the city.
  • People who like to entertain.
  • Those who frequently host family and friends.
  • City-dwellers that work from home.

What are the most requested Seattle apartment features?

Apartment Dog Parks and Pet Runs

People want pet-friendly apartments, and who can blame them? Pets make life more enjoyable, providing companionship and friendship. That's why many of the Holland Residential properties in Seattle incorporate these features in the most unlikely places.

Our Chroma SLU property features two rooftop dog parks. It's an unorthodox place for a dog to play, but one of our core concepts is to utilize all available space. Dimension is home to a rooftop dog run that makes it easy to exercise your pet, even when you don’t want to take them on a walk.

Those aren’t the only Holland options with dog amenities, and all of our buildings are pet-friendly.

Apartments with Gyms and Fitness Centers

There’s no reason to go off-site to get your workout. Apartment buildings were originally intended to act as communities, and part of that means creating space for the hobbies and routines that residents’ value most.

That value doesn’t stop at 24-hour fitness centers like you’ll find at Coppins Well. It means creating new opportunities for exercise like Coppins Well’s Bocce Ball Court. Our True North property includes a bouldering wall for climbers from amateur to advanced skill levels. Bowlers will enjoy their own personal lane in our Westlake Steps bowling alley.

A Seattle apartment with fitness options saves you money and time. When working out is convenient, you’ll also do it more often because once you’re finished its just a short walk and elevator ride back home.

Apartments with Rooftop Decks and Patios

Space is at a premium in the city and using all of it means integrating some of our best features into the roofs of our Seattle apartment buildings. Many of our properties have a rooftop deck with uncovered and covered areas, dining tables, a variety of seating options including loungers, as well as BBQ’s and firepits.

Rooftop decks offer multiple life enhancements. We work hard to integrate landscaping into our roofs when we have the opportunity, creating a rooftop oasis of green space for residents to relax in. Having a semi-natural refuge close at hand is priceless for a quiet reading session after a long work day, or a weekend game, cup of tea, or lounge session with someone you want to spend time with.

The 5 biggest private employers in Seattle

Jobs are one of the biggest influencing factors when people make a move. Suburb to city moves are common when the right job comes up, and with a global workforce for many major Seattle employers, there are always people moving into Seattle to work at one of its largest employers. Employees courted away from other large cities, or those looking for a cheaper city to live in are also typically apartment hunting. So, who are the largest private employers in Seattle?

Boeing – 69,830 Employees in Seattle

According to Boeing’s own employment data page, they have just under 70K employees in Washington State as of January 1st, 2019. With three primary campuses in the greater Seattle area, the majority of those employees are working in and around Seattle, WA.

Offering a high pay scale and exceptional benefits makes Boeing a behemoth, even with the frequent ups and downs the aerospace industry seems to go through. Though current employee numbers more closely match 2005’s than the companies last hiring boom in 2012, it’s still a reliable source of NW job growth.

Microsoft – 47,000 Employees in Seattle

As one of the areas largest and oldest mega-employers, Microsoft started the tech boom that changed Seattle for better or worse. The company is currently overhauling their gigantic 500-acre campus in Redmond, which accounts for most of their workforce. The new campus will support 47,000 employees with room for 8,000 more.

Before the new campus is completed in 2023, Microsoft has already started working on their new Toronto campus as well. When construction is complete, their Canadian workforce is expected to increase by 20x its current level, and Seattle employees may be pulled away to work at the new building.

Amazon – 40,000 Employees in Seattle

While the Seattle Times cites 40,000 Amazon employees as of the end of 2017, this number is set to change fairly soon. Amazon recently rallied hard against a new business tax and is planning on moving their entire logistics team to a new campus in Bellevue WA by the end of 2025.

Though this may negatively impact the number of Amazon employees in Seattle, the company continues to grow and hire year over year. Amazon’s employee pool swelled to 541,900 people at the end of 2017 from 306,800 just a year before. With growth like that, even a major employee shift to another city may not make an impact in overall Seattle numbers.

University of Washington – 26,100 Employees in Seattle

Universities typically rank as one of an area’s largest employers wherever they are. This is even true for a city as large as Seattle, and according to LinkedIn there are currently 26,100 people listed as UW employees. Universities offer diverse job opportunities because educators are just a small piece of the puzzle.

Campuses operate like small towns. They have housing facilities, kitchens, stores, libraries, and require continual maintenance and groundskeeping to keep running. Entire employment branches are dedicated to operations, sales, and promotions. Universities create jobs and propel growth outside of their campus as graduates are often hired locally after their education is finished.

Providence Health and Services – 16,828 Employees in Seattle

Hospitals are major employers in every city they are in. The larger their presence in a single area, the greater those figures become. With 5 hospital campuses in the Seattle area, and 117 primary and specialty care locations across Puget Sound, Swedish Medical Group is a major local employer.

According to Swedish’s own figures, they employed 12,961 people locally as of 2018. Because hospitals work with other healthcare professionals, they also list 3,867 ancillary physicians and healthcare workers. Having first established themselves by area nuns in 1856, Providence is also one of Seattle’s oldest continual local employers as well.

Seattle Transportation Options

Seattle Light Rail

The Seattle Link Light Rail is constantly expanding north and south, making it one of the easiest ways to get around. It currently runs all the way into North Seattle and south to Sea-Tac Airport. Construction is continuing as tracks expand into Shoreline and eventually Everett. Our downtown Seattle and Lake Union apartment residents have easy access to the Link Light Rail.

Seattle Ferry

The Seattle Ferry is another mode of transportation that’s accessible from our downtown Seattle apartment buildings. You can take the ferry over to Bremerton, Bainbridge Island, or on an afternoon or weekend trip to one of the beautiful, quiet, and serene San Juan Islands.

King County Metro

As the area leader in public transportation, King County Metro has stops near every one of our Seattle apartments. Between the standard bus routes and rapid transit, you can get around the entire city with very few transfers.


For longer trips to the north and south, nothing beats Amtrak if you don’t feel like driving. The King Street Station is a short ride from any one of our Seattle apartment buildings, and runs south into California, east into Colorado, and north into British Columbia.

Seattle’s Geographic Features

Bodies of Water

Lake Union

Lake Union connects the Pacific Ocean via Salmon Bay and is one of the hottest real-estate and recreational areas in all of Seattle. The lake’s shores are laden with houseboats, and clearly visible as residents cross the I-5 bridge in and out of Seattle.

Puget Sound

The Puget Sound is the Northwest’s most famous body of water. It is an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, part of the Salish Sea, and teams with wildlife including the great Pacific Octopus.

View of the Puget Sound

Lake Washington

Lake Washington is the largest lake in the area and is commonly used for recreation including boating and fishing. With year-round fishing, it’s a paradise for hobby fishers who call Seattle home.


Greenlake has undergone a renaissance in the last few years. It used to be a swimmer no go, but Seattle has enacted some major cleanup efforts and beaches are now regularly open for swimming. Runners, walkers, and bikers can be seen making the Greenlake loop year-round.


Tectonic Features

As anyone whose grown up in Seattle knows, the big one has been just around the corner for their entire lifetime—that’s because the Seattle Fault Line runs under the southern portion of the city and west to the Cascade mountain range. The Juan de Fuca plate is the biggest earthquake producer and was responsible for the 6.8 quake in February of 2001.

Seattle Biomes

Have you heard the one about Seattle sinking? The change is gradual, but while certain areas are rising, many coastal areas by the Puget Sound that include Seattle, are sinking. Sinking is a natural phenomenon that frequently occurs in coastal areas weighed down by city construction and areas like the Seattle waterfront were built on mudflat and coastal lowlands.

One of the largest man-made impacts to the area is the little-known history behind the Pacific Ocean to Lake Washington canal. This canal was constructed in 1916 and affected the area more than any other development. Mountains were torn down and rivers were rerouted to complete the construction that would allow inland shipping of goods and materials.


Seattle is a temperate climate where it never gets too cold, hitting an average of 42 Fahrenheit in December. Summers are typically cooler than southern climates, averaging 68 Fahrenheit in August, Seattle’s hottest month.

Major geographic factors that contribute to the climate include the Pacific coast which when paired with the Cascade mountains, produce most of the the city’s rainfall. The other side of the Cascades are a rain shadow, causing the dry and dusty desert environments that Eastern Washington is known for. Rainfall isn’t as much as outsiders think given Seattle’s reputation. The yearly average is rainfall in Seattle only 37.59 inches per year, less than New York City and Atlanta, GA.
