SEATTLE — Walton Lofts is located at the corner of Western Avenue and Vine Street in downtown Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood and includes city and water views in a park-like setting.

The 136-unit building, which opened in July, is situated on Seattle’s original “green street” and is adjacent to the half-block Belltown Cottage Park.

The location has a history of community involvement and advocacy. In the mid-1990s, a group of community members worked with the city to form what has become known as the Growing Vine Street initiative. The Schuster Group, developer of Walton Lofts, is participating in this community plan that encourages park-like landscaping and community art features. As a result, the area includes native landscaping and meandering stairs that encourage pedestrians to enjoy a stroll toward the nearby Puget Sound waterfront.

They can watch as rainwater collected from the rooftop runs down a series of open-faced runnels within the building and is poured from sculpted hands into a connecting weir system. As the water trickles through the weirs, it is naturally filtered and cleansed before eventually ending in the Sound.

The building is also part of the Green Globes environmental-certification program.

Amenities at Walton Lofts include a library, guest suite, bicycle workshop and storage, rooftop pet area, fitness center, underground parking and rooftop deck.

Homes feature 10- to 13-foot loft ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, air conditioning and views of Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle and the Olympic Mountains.
