One of the pioneering multi-family residential projects in the emerging Cascade neighborhood of Seattle’s South Lake Union area, the Lakeview apartments, with its corner turret element stands out on its prominent corner site in the neighborhood, diagonally across the street from Cascade Park. The 3 and 5-story wood-frame portions of the building are a combination of ground-related street-facing units and upper-floor apartments arranged around a south-facing, hardscaped, urban courtyard. The street-facing exterior is broken into distinct small-scaled parts, accentuated by lower-level unit entries at the street, to maintain the original pedestrian-scaled streetscape of the neighborhood. Under-structure parking is located in the back off the alley.
