Living in a South Lake Union Apartment

Whether you’re from Seattle or considering moving to the area, Lake Union is one of the most beautiful, active places you can call home. South Lake Union, known locally as SLU, has rapidly become one of Seattle’s trendiest neighborhoods. Between the growing Amazon campus, Lake Union Park, museums, shops, and amazing restaurants it isn’t just growing, it’s a place for growth.

Apartment living in South Lake Union and Westlake offer some amazing benefits . like a close waterfront view, easy lake access, and small neighborhood charm just minutes from downtown Seattle.

What’s the SLU neighborhood like?

Westlake and South Lake Union encompass the southernmost shore of the lake, and the entire area is changing rapidly. With Amazon’s new SLU campuses redefining the urban landscape, many transplants have moved in, and the number of residents the area supports is expected to double in the next few years.

South Lake Union extends from the bottom of Denny Park on Denny way east to I-5, west to Broad Street, and north to Aloha St at its northwest most point then follows the lakeshore east and upwards to E. Blaine St.

This area encapsulates most of SLU’s southernmost shore including the majority of Lake Union Park and the Fairview Marina. Easy lake access is one of the best reasons to move to the area and draws in new residents from all around Seattle.

Neighborhood Events in South Lake Union

You don’t have to be rich to live near the waterfront. A studio apartment puts you in the heart of South Lake Union’s neighborhood, with access to everything that makes it unique. With a near constant stream of events occurring monthly, you’ll never run out of things to do whether you enjoy the arts, food, water activities, or those special local events that moving to South Lake Union brings with it. Here are some favorite activities our residents love:

Toy Boats in the Lake Union Park boat pond.

Make waves in a Dragon Boat

The Seattle Dragon Boat Festival is put on yearly by Seattle’s home team, the Seattle Flying Dragons. This sport involves racing long wooden boats, and competitive teams can be found across the globe with a national federation holding championships every year. You can try out for the team, but it might help to hedge your bets if you bring a roommate. The Seattle festival is held at Lake Union and offers a chance to experience racing as local teams compete for bragging rights.

Experience local neighborhood food, wares, and people

The South Lake Union Market is a multi-tiered neighborhood event. It combines a daytime market, a night market, and additional activities like free outdoor movie screenings at SLU’s Discovery Center. You could literally spend all Saturday in and around Lake Union Park, never doing or seeing the same thing twice. The community factor, where local events bring together area tradespeople and residents from all over SLU are a large part of what make it such a compelling place to call home.

Taste a new country in every glass of cider

What’s one of the best reasons to live in SLU? When you live next to the Cider Summit, you never have to take a cab home. SLU is home to one of the nation’s largest cider festivals. Whether you like your cider sweet, bitter, dry, green or red, you’ll find something to love from a selection of more than 200 different ciders and spirits.

Rock out at the South Lake Union Block Party

When you live in SLU you’re a part of the tribe whether you rent a 1-bedroom apartment by Denny Park or live directly on the lake. Nothing says community like a neighborhood block party, and the yearly SLU Block Party takes over Westlake Ave N. and Denny Way every single year. This year, the event hosts five bands, including headliners The Dandy Warhols. Enjoy local food, crafts, and free music from noon to 11PM. When you live in Westgate or SLU apartments, the year’s best party is just a stone’s throw from your front door!

Watch fireworks from the comfort of a rooftop patio

Where does Seattle hold its annual fireworks display every year? You guessed it, Lake Union. Every one of our Holland Residential South Lake Union apartments features one or more rooftop deck and patios. You’ll have the best seats in the house to watch fireworks on Lake Union without having to leave home.

Living near Lake Union Park
at the heart of SLU

We have several properties right next to Lake Union Park, one of the coolest parks in the entirety of Seattle. What makes it so much better than your average park?

  1. Experience a trip to the past with a visit to Seattle’s only model boat pond. The circular boat pond was originally constructed in 1941, and has hosted free sailing model boats ever since. With a revival in the practice and the Center for Wooden Boats at home in the park, you’ll love discovering what one recent visitor said felt, “just like Paris.”
  2. School yourself at the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI). With an event calendar that seems never ending, MOHAI offers classes, speakers, dinners, history tours and gatherings for participants of all ages on topics as diverse as the Seattle waterfront to the history of the Seattle’s Showbox, earthquake preparedness in native culture, and so much more. Living near Lake Union gives you easy-resident access to every event they offer.

Westlake living near the Northeast Queen Anne Greenbelt

Lake Union residents aren’t the only ones near a great park. 10 blocks north-east of Lake Union Park, you’ll find the Northeast Queen Anne Greenbelt and adjoining parks. What makes this such a great urban greenspace?

  1. Hiking is the primary activity in the greenbelt, and the park was originally suggested by the Olmsted Brothers in 1903. With exceptional views of the lake and Cascade mountains, it’s also the perfect place to watch seaplanes land and depart.
  2. Reserve your plot in the Queen Pea Community Garden. The Greenbelt connects to Trolley Hill Park, a small but beautiful little park on Queen Anne Hill. There are 32 plots spread across 4,000 square feet of land, and you can reserve one. If you fall in love with the area, reserve your plot now because it can take from 1 – 2 years before a plot opens ups.
  3. MacLean Park is connected to the north end of the Greenbelt, making this a three-in-one nature bathers paradise. In addition to more beautiful views and a meadow at its base, this park also features sports courts for baseball, soccer, volleyball, and basketball.
