    This building is in one of the best locations in Seattle. Walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops. The building itself is nice and simple, with a very convenient door system. The building manager is a little bit lazy, as when we moved in there were a handful of things we needed to address and have fixed. But otherwise, great spot.
