Mixed-Use Complex Opens in Seattle’s Beacon Hill Neighborhood
The Colina, a mixed-use, mixed-income apartment complex has opened in Seattle, adjacent to the Beacon Hill light rail station. The property consists of two buildings: the 40-unit Colina West and the 99-unit Colina East. The project also includes 4,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor.
Pacific Housing NW developed the project and also owns it along with Colina LLC and HAL Real Estate. The Colina has micro-, one- and two-bedroom units, some with private balconies and 20% that are affordable. Amenities include a fitness center, a community room and roof decks with gardens.
The retail space, which has been incorporated into the light rail plaza, has already attracted two local restaurants, Baja Bistro and Chebogz while Loxsmith Bagels is set to move in later this spring. The apartments are also LEED Gold certified with a solar-assisted heat pump, solar panels, green roofs and bioswales.
