Vancouver firm developing Seattle apartment projects



Seattle — A record number of apartments — more than 7,000 — are under construction in Seattle this summer, according to The Seattle Times. And at least a portion of those new units are being developed by Vancouver-based Holland Partner Group (not affiliated with Holland Inc., Burgerville chain owner).

Focused on building for the urban apartment market, Holland Partner Group plans to open Union Apartments at 901 Dexter Ave. N. next month near the South Lake Union Trolley Line. The company also is planning a second project in Seattle.

The $25 million, 100-unit 717 Dexter development will incorporate townhouse units, studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments in an urban-hip design. Apartment developments by other companies are going up in Seattle’s Capitol Hill, Lower Queen Anne, Columbia City and West Seattle sectors.

More projects are in the planning pipeline in the Roosevelt, Denny Triangle, University District and Ballard neighborhoods.
