Live Rent-Free For a Year at Via 6

As a flood of new apartments hits Seattle, we’ve been curious to see how the projects will stand out from each other. Especially since many of them seem to look exactly the same inside. Via6 has already attracted attention with its two towers, 654 units (photos from our tour back in October) and heavy-hitting ground-floor retail presence (Tom Douglas, with three new concepts, and Velo Bike Shop which we are crushed is moving from Capitol Hill.)

Today, Via6 announced a promotion that’s bound to attract attention—The Great Via6 Scavenger Hunt. It’s an online and in-person game with challenges focused on downtown Seattle. The grand prize  is pretty amazing—the winner will receive a year of free rent on a new one-bedroom, one–bathroom apartment at Via6. Plus, sixteen additional winners will score deals afrom downtown organizations that represent the experiences people would have living at Via6, including Tom Douglas Restaurants, City Kitchens, KEXP and others.

The game begins on March 13. Game registration (500 spots available) is online at

The developer of Via6, Pine Street Group L.L.C., is teaming up with The Go Game, a San Francisco-based game company, to produce the promotion.

Disclaimer: As of today Via6 is an Urbnlivn advertiser so naturally we’re excited to help them get the word out about this whacky promotion.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    I just called, and Via 6 is charging about $1800 for a 10th-floor, one-bedroom apartment, or about $1600 for a 6th-floor, one-bedroom apartment. The lack of prices on their website is disconcerting, but the building itself is attractive.

    It does drive me bonkers when apartments and condos don’t put all the information online!

    Thanks for your interest! Price ranges are provided in the floor plan section of the Via6 website here: Let us know if you’d like more detailed information. Good luck if you’re joining The Great Via6 Scavenger Hunt – and we hope you do!

    You’re right. But that’s really not easy to find; the main nav bar at the bottom of your site should have a link that says “prices.”

    And many of the prices have asterisks next to them, like the one-bedroom “Q” and “R” plans.

    The asterisks on the “Q” and “R” prices were a glitch which we’ve fixed – thanks for pointing that out.
