The massive Via6 Apartments between Belltown and South Lake Union are still under construction but you can now pre-lease for move in on March 1st.
We stopped by the sales office at 6th and Lenora today to get more details. The leasing consultant told us the model units are not ready for tours until next week, but that didn’t stop two people from putting money down on a unit, sight unseen.
Don’t worry, there are plenty of apartments left, 652 to be exact. Here are some price points…
Studio: 465 – 598 sq ft – $1175 to $2120/mo
“Urban one bedroom”: 523 – 783 sq ft – $1275 to $2195/mo
Conventional one bedroom: 644 – 983 sq ft — $1600 to $3500/mo
Two bedroom, one bath: 825 – 876 sq ft — $2050 to $3930/mo
Two bedroom, two bath: 856 to 1094 sq ft — $2175 to $3735/mo
The units are in two separate towers and you can choose from more than 50 floor plans. Here are a few options…
Now, the price points above are only for floors one to 22. Apartments on the 23rd and 24th floors are considered “penthouse” units because they come with higher-grade materials and finishes. The rent on those units go all the way up to $4985 a month. Parking spots in the three-level underground garage are available for an additional $150 per month.
The leasing consultant says the building will be LEED Gold certified. Common amenities include a movie and game room; a fitness center; dog relief and wash areas; concierge; and an outdoor pavilion on the 7th floor (no rooftop deck).
As part of what it calls a “vertical neighborhood”, Via6 will also be home to a new Tom Douglas restaurant, a cafe, a grocery, a bakery and even a bike shop. The idea is you would never have to leave the building. And if you work for Amazon.com, you may only have to walk a few steps to get to work when one of the online retailer’s new office towers is completed across the street, though that’s still a few years away.
We are going back next week to tour the model units. We’ll post photos and videos here. Let us know if there’s anything you want us to ask about.
