Building Square Footage
35,000 sf multi-family
Designed by architect Ed Weinstein, Canton Lofts is a multifamily Opportunity Zone LEED Silver development that will include 80 units of workforce housing and a ground floor retail space in the heart of Pioneer Square. London Plane trees will be planted along its front and sides. Canton Lofts’ smart design emphasizes affordability and livability, two critical components in providing socially responsible rental housing. The 35,000 square foot project will produce desirable studio loft apartments which provide direct access to the vibrant Pioneer Square neighborhood and are within easy walking distance to the central business district.
The building will feature superior build quality, premium finishes and appealing amenities including a community co-working lounge, secured bike storage, a rooftop terrace with barbecues, a fire pit, dog run and expansive views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. Canton Lofts’ location features a 98 Walk Score, an 80 Bike Score and a 100 Transit Score.
The building’s loft-style apartments are thoughtfully designed with flexible floor plans to accommodate singles as well as couples. Each apartment will feature large windows and 14-foot ceilings. Layouts include built-in cabinetry, elevated sleeping lofts, a high-quality en suite bath with large walk-in tiled showers and modern kitchens with ranges, microwaves, refrigerators, quartz countertops, sinks and garbage disposals.
Canton Lofts’ residents will be able to access most points in Seattle without owning a car. If parking is needed, there is an adjacent parking lot with stalls for rent on a monthly basis. The project’s affordability and rich amenities will have an immediate positive social impact on the neighborhood, further supporting Pioneer Square’s ongoing revitalization into a healthy and vibrant place to live, work and visit. Nitze-Stagen has a long history of investing in Pioneer Square through Merrill Place, The Cadillac Hotel, Union Station and the Union Station Garage.
The Canton Lofts’ apartments will be ready for occupancy in Spring of 2021.
