For the last decade, South Lake Union has led Seattle’s transformation and growth. With it came thousands of new workers eager for an urban live/work lifestyle. This month with the arrival of Cirrus, SLU’s newest and much needed high-rise collection of apartment homes along 8th Avenue, they’ll get the lifestyle they deserve in the heart of it all.
Designed to give residents the feeling of living in the clouds, Cirrus homes feature architecture that provides more usable space than most downtown dwellings, including open floor plans and outdoor balconies. Chef-inspired kitchens with gourmet appliances and a choice of four color palettes are perfect for entertaining. And all of this comes with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.

“It’s exciting to see residents’ reactions when they tour Cirrus,” says Geoff L’Abbe’, Cirrus’ leasing executive. “They look as though they’re already home the first time they step in the building. From the space planning, home features and unparalleled top-floor amenities, residents feel understood.”
Among those home features are:
- Unmatched views of Elliott Bay, Lake Union and the Cascades
- Chef kitchen islands & quartz countertops
- Five-piece spa bathrooms in some homes
- Spacious balconies for more than 70 percent of homes at Cirrus
Not to mention every imaginable extra. Cirrus offers a sophisticated collection of amenities, including a 41st floor fitness center and private yoga room, a Sky Lounge with expansive city views, and a Sky Club with table tennis and foosball. The rooftop terrace is loaded with grilling stations and myriad seating areas for summertime soirees. Washing stations for cars, bikes and four-legged friends confirm that Cirrus has thought through all of the details. Family in town and forgot to make reservations? Residents can simply buzz the concierge and consider their table booked.

Connected to Capitol Hill, Downtown, Belltown and Lower Queen Anne, Cirrus puts Seattle’s most sophisticated sights, eats and drinks within striking distance. Its location just off of Westlake Avenue near Whole Foods and Amazon’s new office development will offer residents a perfectly located and beautifully designed live/work option. “Residents will start moving in this month,” L’Abbe says. Homes at Cirrus are still available. But schedule a tour quickly. “We’re having a hard time keeping pace with all of the tour requests. Don’t get me wrong though. It’s a nice problem to have.”
