Construction is complete on AMLI Arc, a 393-unit apartment tower at 1800 Boren Avenue,. The 41-story tower, designed by ZGF Architects, is similar to many apartment buildings that cater to the north downtown and South Lake Union tech core, with an emphasis on social interaction and common areas—although clearly it’s taller than many of them.
The luxury tower has several apartment shapes, including penthouses, ranging from 520-square-foot studios to 1300-square-foot three-bedrooms. These are organized into three different “stacks”: the lower units have exposed building elements. Up a little higher, the units have a more finished look. The top three levels have higher-end finishes and higher ceilings.
AMLI tells us the interior design was inspired by an “industrial warehouse,” theme, which led to many raw details, like concrete columns and metal window frames, being exposed.
In a luxury market full of apartment amenities—a dog run and pet spa for everyone—AMLI adds a few functional spaces, like a workshop or maker space, a media room, and lockers specific to outdoor gear.
Speaking of dog runs and pet spas, Arc has both, plus the other parts of the luxury standard package: a gym, a community kitchen and lounge, and a roof deck.
A bike workshop area doubles as an additional lounge.
509 parking stalls are shared with the second structure in the development, 11-story office building Tilt 49, next door. That building was leased by Amazon.
Rent ranges from $2,000 to more than $6,000, depending on unit size and location.
