Area: 180,000 sf

Project Details

Located on Western Avenue and Blanchard Street, just two blocks from Pike Place Market, Elara fuses location with enduring architecture that embraces Belltown’s character, scale and historical context. The building’s façade at grade provides transparency and safety for pedestrians, which will be further enhanced by future development to surrounding public realm.

The project features 150 residential apartments, including five live-work units, with remarkable amenities and a grand lobby including a fireplace, living room, and bar. A wine room allows residents to store their collection and host dinner parties, while a rooftop with cooking spaces, lounge, lawn, dog run, and fire pit has breathtaking views of the Space Needle, Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

Elara’s design is sustainable, with LEED Gold certification and locally sourced materials that mirror neighboring buildings to address the surrounding urban context. The interior design, by Robin Chell Design, blends a modern aesthetic with Belltown’s charm, and focuses on occupant wellbeing and livability.
