The Alcyone apartments are located in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood. Built as a joint venture between Vulcan Real Estate and Harbor Properties, the Alcyone apartments were Seattle's first LEED-certified residential project. They are very urban and designed for the young and hip who prefer walking to driving. The Alcyone features energy efficient windows, a central gas-fired domestic hot water system, steel framing (instead of wood) for increased durability, low-VOC paints, electric vehicle charging stations, bike storage stations and a rooftop garden that recycles rainwater. In building the structure, 80% of the construction waste was recycled. All of this results in lower utility bills, cleaner air, more natural light, increased sustainability and healthier indoor living environments. Heads up from Urban Ashley.
