On our whirlwind trip to Seattle a few weekends ago we saw about 9 apartments all over downtown in about 8 hours. It was exhausting to say the least. After the first 4 all the gyms looked the same and the kitchen’s all melded into one. By the end of the day, we had narrowed it down to 2 spots. It was a tough call, one was better in location, and the other was hipper and newer. We finally picked one based on size and location. It was a whopping 800 sq ft. and only $1700! I could walk to Pike’s Place, and Capitol Hill, and the Hubs could walk to work. It was fate.
Until, they contacted us after we gave our deposit and they said the current tenants wanted to extend their lease. Our number 2 choice was now our number 1. And I’m actually excited about it. It’s a brand new building, with a coffee shop/juice bar/trendy restaurant/market downstairs. ( As well as beautiful amenities like the sun deck.) Here we come!
