The exterior of the building has been painted and they are currently redoing the decks. The Yacht Club which is west facing has the most efficient layout and comes with double closets in the bedroom.  Even though it is 17 square feet smaller than the Dockside floor plan, it appears bigger. The dockside facing Lake Union gets a peek-a-boo view of the lake, and partial city view. The first level unit comes with a patio. The topsider has a patio and a huge balcony.


– Proximity to the Lake Union
– Wood burning fireplace, something that is not commonly found in a condo
– Reasonably priced


– Not much going on around that neighborhood
