Rollin Street Flats hosted their agent open house and new construction preview yesterday, and they were kind enough to invest a $25 gift card to Whole Foods for all those who attended. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take any photos, so there’s not much to show you to form an opinion of your own. But, if you’re looking for a high-end (expensive) loft with exposed concrete and ductwork in a booming location, Rollin Street may be a place to check out. At the same time, this may not be the place for you if a view is a necessity.
Here’s a quick look at all the construction and activity happening in the neighborhood which was once fast asleep.

Rollin Street Flats is one of three projects by Vulcan located on the corner of Westlake and Denny. These loft homes have nearly no interior walls and most units have up to 10′ high ceilings.* Interior finishes include German Eggersmann cabinetry, stone surfaces, crushed quartz kitchen counter tops, high-grade hardwoods, Bosch appliances, Kohler fixtures, air-conditioning, and decks. A unique amenity at Rollin Street Flats is the integration of a multi-use sport court for basketball, volleyball, or badminton. The 4th floor deck has a grilling area, party seating and fireplace. Built by Howard S. Wright Construction Co. and designed by loft experts Ankrom Moisan, the 11-story building has been built to achieve LEED Silver certification with key features being water conserving fixtures, dual-flash toilets, and drought resistant landscaping.

It seems as though the South Lake Union neighborhood has dominated the public’s interest in newspaper headlines. In just the last week alone, there were four updates featured in the Seattle Times and Post Intelligencer regarding economic and ecological progress. Here’s a peek at what’s the beginning of the S.L.U. boom.
- The new streetcar began operating at 12:12pm on 12-12-07. It was automobiles that were originally the death of the streetcar in the 1940’s. With the expectation of 12,000 new jobs and 6,000 new homes to be built in the neighborhood, the streetcar will help cut back on fuel usage and congestion.
- Speaking of fuel usage, another recent announcement was made stating that Propel Biofuels will open it’s flagship gas station on the corner of Westlake Avenue and Valley Street. The station will not have attendants, convenience store or even pumps. Customers will serve themselves and the landscaping will include canola, camilina, switch grass and soybeans. All of which ingredients to make biodiesel fuel.
- The media also announced the recent approval given to Vulcan, Paul Allen’s development company, to construct three 160′ buildings for the new (presumed) Amazon.com headquarters. Not only will the new location for Amazon drive a speculated 4,000 new jobs to the neighborhood, the City Counsel Panel also insured money would be allocated to affordable housing.
- On Friday, the new footbridge was installed at South Lake Union Park which connects people to the new streetcar station. The 12-acre park is planned to include parking, boardwalk, model boat pond and lush landscaping.
