Lakefront Blocks

Perched above Google’s new urban campus in South Lake Union, the luxury apartments in the Helm and Mera towers of the Lakefront Blocks have sweeping views over Lake Union, Seattle Center, and the downtown skyline. Designed as a retreat from the hustle and bustle below, the residences are inspired by qualities of a quintessential lake house retreat, embracing a sense of calm with gracious views over the water, soft and natural material palettes in the interiors, and comfortably sized residential flats and penthouse units. The uppermost story of each tower features a large amenity suite and common area roof deck, allowing residents to expand their living space and provide a gathering area designed to enhance the exclusive community.
