Phase 2 of the AMLI South Lake Union Apartments is a new 118 unit market rate, 147,000 square foot, multi-family building in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. The building includes 112,000 square feet of high end market-rate apartments above two levels of underground parking.

A distinctive feature of this building is the solarium room which boasts sweeping views of Lake Union and the Seattle skyline, a large green wall, seating for 15, business area, and a full kitchen that adds functionality to the amenity space. Other amenity areas include a state-of-the-art fitness room, projection theatre room, large commercial kitchen cooking area, bicycle repair room, home-brewing area, maker lab for woodworking, lush courtyards with an open fireplace feature, and car charging stations.

In honor of the Columbian mammoth tusk unearthed during structural excavation, this apartment building holds a unique name - LuLu. Rafn and AMLI recognized the value of preserving this piece of iconic local history and partnered with the Burke Museum to ensure the legacy of this great animal continues. The project was not delayed at all with construction carrying on while the tusk was successfully unearthed, preserved, and ultimately removed. Apartments include studio, open-one, one-, and two bedroom configurations. High-end finishes throughout including interior design finish packages, stainless steel appliances, solid-surface countertops, oversized bathtubs, and energy-efficient operable windows.

The building’s environmentally friendly design and construction earned LEED Silver certification.
