Picture yourself in a life of luxury at Ascent.

Presented by Ascent February 14, 2019

In the heart of perhaps Seattle’s most transformed neighborhood, there’s a new 25-story superstar. Ascent South Lake Union, Seattle’s premier urban residential building by national multifamily developer Greystar, features 251 contemporary high-rise apartment homes that offer sensational views of sparkling Lake Union, the Space Needle, and the iconic city skyline. Located in the vibrant zone of South Lake Union, the building can be found adjacent to Amazon’s headquarters as well as amid a thriving lineup of restaurants, shops, and stores. This location has it all, from your new favorite coffee shop Lassi + Spice, nearby brunch spots, and newly opened wellness studios Club Pilates or STRETCH Motion to your preferred place to unwind with a post-work cocktail.

So, aside from the coveted address, why choose this property as your future home? Think top-notch amenities, seamless resident services, and 360-degree views showcasing some of Seattle’s best assets. Designed by award-winning local architecture firm Weber Thompson, Ascent’s spaces merge modernity and nature. Choose between one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences and penthouses that span from 669 square feet to 1,831 square feet. Prices range from $2,600 to $9,355 per month.

As a resident, you’ll enjoy countless perks that enhance your own personal oasis. All homes here feature spacious California Closets, Nest thermostats, Blomberg stainless steel appliances, custom kitchens, gas ranges, and marble-inspired stone countertops. If you’re looking to elevate your experience even further, penthouses feature Alexa-controlled lighting and window shades. Need we say more? To add to the temptation, they also have hardwood floors, waterfall marble kitchen islands, a Monogram 28-bottle wine reserve, charcoal-filtered water, Brizo kitchen and bath fixtures, and secret TV screens embedded into bathroom mirrors. Everyday life has never felt so pampered. 

The building also features common areas styled by award-winning, Seattle-based interior design firm Susan Marinello Interiors, who has been at the helm of stunning projects like The Private Residences at The Four Seasons Seattle, Hotel Theodore, and Woodmark Hotel. Through the firm’s use of wood, stone, and natural elements, the communal spaces serve as an extension of nearby Lake Union—the neighborhood’s anchor. 

The building décor speaks to that coveted “lake life,” with nautical elements that include custom imagery of seaplanes, polished chrome light fixtures, navy-hued accents, and camel leather. Finally, the high-rise’s exterior was intentionally designed to give the illusion of cascading rain.

At the base of Ascent, six different retailers await. And at the tip-top? You won’t want to miss The Observatory, an expansive rooftop lounge and open-air deck. Created for all-season, outdoor-indoor living (with 360-degree views), The Observatory comes with a range of lounge areas ideal for socializing, thanks to firepits, BBQ grills, overhead heaters, an indoor entertainment kitchen, a game room with life-size Scrabble board, and a rooftop spa.

Additional amenities allow you to maintain that mind-body balance, like the movement studio with virtual fitness classes, Luxer One package lockers, and a 2,600-square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness center. There’s also a dedicated co-working space and conference room, plus a 24-hour concierge service ready to attend to your every need, from dry cleaning to Saturday night’s dinner reservation. And our pet-friendly community fits right into SLU with an industrial pet wash station and rooftop dog run. Parking is provided on-site with electric car charging stations and indoor bicycle storage; truly, we’ve thought of everything. Welcome home!
