CityLine II Apartments
The CityLine II project is a transit-oriented development located just 500 feet from the Columbia City Link Light Rail station in southeast Seattle. Consisting of two four-story buildings located over a common 126-car underground parking garage, the project has 155 apartments along 32nd Avenue South, providing a more pedestrian friendly scale that complements the existing neighborhood street. VIA, with our client The Wolff Company, worked diligently with stakeholders and the design review board to find this solution that significantly improves the streetscape and creates a welcoming and civically engaged frontage. Cityline II is LEED Silver.
An increased building setback along both street frontages provides space for enhanced landscaping and better pedestrian engagement, with an integrated through-block pedestrian passage and a separation from the vehicle access which is provided through a shared easement on the backside of the building. In addition to a club room and fitness area, one of the unique indoor amenities included is a 2-lane bowling alley.
