Art Deco Meets Modern Sustainability At The Belroy


Point32 is a real estate developer that cares about lasting quality, construction and value. They're also driven by creating and revising buildings with sustainability in mind. All of that converged in The Belroy, a 1931 Art Deco building located at 703 Bellevue Ave E that they refurbished and reopened earlier this year.

Considered one of Seattle's early architectural marvels, the Belroy caught the eye of Point32, who renovated the interior, added on a new structure, incorporated street-level retail and brought the old-world style of the original building into the 21st century.

The result is 113 apartments (62 renovated with a classic feel, 51 new with a modern feel) that feature long, linear floorplans, wood floors and massive windows with tremendous, western views of the city, Olympic Mountains & South Lake Union. Floorplans range from 460 sq. ft. (studio) to 1,160 sq. ft. (2-BR town home) and tenants share a courtyard in the middle of the complex.

For many years, the Belroy was a place that Seattle's brightest architects called home. The forward-thinking spirit of their designs lives on even as the complex is updated for modern times. Leasing for the Belroy is currently underway and units are approximately 27% occupied at the moment. Find out more about the Belroy here.
