Great location/price/quality balance
Very clean and has lots of amenities such as a bike maintenance shed and shared locked bike storage shed. Location is great for bicycle commuters who can hop on the Burke Gilman. Gym is small and can get crowded at any time (especially before/after work times). Ambient noise is about average for the city - walls are not thick and you’ll hear your neighbors walking around during the day (and possibly night). Security of the parking garage is a concern as we share the lot with retail parking and the gate is open during business hours. Management is rarely responsive to residents over email but reasonably easy to find in the office when needed. Amazon package lockers are great.
Great Place to Live
I have lived in this apartment complex for a semester and it has been great! The staff are super friendly and very accommodating to individual needs and requests. Although it is a little pricey, there is secure underground parking in a garage with cameras, a two level gym, and free coffee and tea at all hours. Plus there are free breakfasts on Saturdays and hot tubs and party rooks on the roof. There is also free printing in the business center which is great for graduate students! The apartment complex is within walking distance of Dogtown and Forest Park and the Science Center. It is only a short drive from the Loop and I can be at WashU in under 15 minutes without ever having to be on the highway.
Slate Apartment in Interbay
Nestled between Queen Anne and Magnolia, Slate Apartments in Interbay is located in the thoroughfare between the University District, Ballard and downtown with bus lines running frequently.
There are great community spaces available for all, but that doesn't seem to make the neighbors buddy-buddy, we're a pretty quiet group of co-habitators.
There have been a few issues with security (bikes being stolen, the security guards slacking off), but the management has been very good about dealing with those problems quickly.
I believe all units (including our 500sq ft studio) have W&Ds, and are available to paint (have to paint back to white at the end of your lease), which makes it feel like much more of a home.
Pets are allowed (only a deposit, no pet rent), and almost everyone takes advantage of it...there is also a downside to this - it frequently smells like a pet shop and there is hair everywhere.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this spot!
