Modera South Lake Union


Modera South Lake Union is Mill Creek’s first development community in Seattle.  The one-acre site on the former Hostess Twinkie factory – less than one mile to Pike Place – is located in the burgeoning South Lake Union neighborhood. Two blocks south of the community is Denny Park (Seattle’s first park) and Lake Union Park, with the Museum of History and Industry just four blocks northeast.

The community includes 294 apartment homes in a seven story building (five floors of Type V wood framing over a two story concrete podium level) over at-grade and subterranean parking. A wide variety of floor plan types are available, including studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes with live-work and loft layouts available. Square footage ranges from 494 square feet to 1,144 square feet.

Modera South Lake Union has a highly programmed leasing office accessed through a lobby oriented toward pedestrian and bicycle-friendly Dexter Avenue. A large fitness center, conference and business center, and club room and media lounge are placed at the north property line facing Republican Street, activating that façade. We included a large roof top deck, with multiple program spaces including a separate pet area, to capitalize on views of Lake Union and the nearby Space Needle.
