Eleanor, the new apartment complex at 800 NE 67th in Roosevelt, officially opened it's doors today. The name, which makes so much sense its amazing it hasn't been used already, is obviously a reference to former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. It works on multiple levels!
Developed by Mack Urban, the two-building, seven story, 267-unit complex includes studios as small as 519 square-feet and 3-BRs as big as 1,006 with multiple options in between. It also includes 59 workforce housing units as part of the city’s MFTE program and the company’s commitment to equitable development.
Units all include one unique feature: A wall mounted gear rack or gear closet in the laundry room. Every unit also has floor to ceiling windows, open floor plan, stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops.
Downstairs, the property boasts a soaring two-story, 1,782 square foot lobby to welcome residents and guests. There's also a gear lounge with racks for recumbent bikes and an automated door for easy access as well as a dog washing station with a large groomer quality bathtub, handheld water sprayer, and a dryer in a separate room for multiple use. An indoor/outdoor fitness center leads to a courtyard for yoga and a patio area for stretching before or after a run.
One thing you won't find is retail or commercial space on the ground floor. According to Dayna Dealy, Development Manager for Mack Urban, "We want residents to support the existing local business along Roosevelt."
Up top, the west building includes a two-story penthouse with kitchen and dining room, two living room spaces with surround sound, foosball, vintage pool table, and a studio work area with views of Greenlake and the mountains. The penthouse outdoor terrace includes a foosball table, barbecues, outdoor fireplace, lounge seating and a floor tile scrabble board for entertainment. The east building penthouse is more lowkey with lounge seating and a gas fireplace.
Eco-friendly features were includes as well. Fifty-five visible 240-watt photovoltaic solar panels provide enough energy to power all the amenity areas. Roof rainwater is collected and reused to irrigate flower planters and feed a stream. Other LEED/green design items include sun shades, photovoltaics, and high efficiency plumbing fixtures and appliances.
