Experience a life of luxury in one of Seattle's most desirable neighborhoods

They say that “home is where the anchor drops.” The Danforth apartments, named after a type of popular anchor, tie three covetable Seattle neighborhoods together, making for the perfect location to call home.

Discover the contemporary energy of Capitol Hill, the classic, timeless stylings of First Hill, and the intelligent design of Seattle University in this one-of-a-kind neighborhood. The Danforth is the only true luxury high-rise in Capitol Hill, and believe us when we say it boasts an insane amount of amenities.

A private getaway in the center of it all.

While most area apartments have little noise-blocking systems, every home at The Danforth is unbelievably quiet, offering you total privacy and peaceful ambiance (go ahead and drop a pin—we dare you!). Expansive windows provide sweeping views of Lake Union and Mount Baker, across the Cascade Range, to Mount Rainer.

The sophisticated design of each home was made with you in mind. The interiors are well-appointed with a clean, contemporary aesthetic.

Take your pick from studio to three-bedroom apartments or a two-story penthouse (don’t worry, all have air conditioning), and choose from four distinct color palette options: two varieties of warm wood and two cool gray options.

The Danforth kitchens really highlight the home’s color palette—with perfect complements of Carrera style quartz countertops and backsplash. The kitchens were designed for the modern chef—providing ample preparation space, pantries for storage, and demonstration-worthy stainless appliances.

You’ll find plenty of these smart, functional finishes, like energy-efficient appliances, full-size in-suite washers and dryers, durable wood-grain plank flooring, and even USB charging outlets.

Did we mention the amenities *cough, Whole Foods, cough*?

Let’s see, where do we even begin? On the ground floor is a brand-new Whole Foods Market, opening on October 30, which means you don’t even have to leave the tower to buy groceries.

And upon entry to the building, residents and guests are greeted by one of The Danforth’s four dedicated concierge team members. Let them take care of your packages, help track down a last-minute birthday gift, or simply offer a warm greeting after a long day at the office.

Amenity spaces throughout the building include The Collection, a 7,500 square-foot social zone featuring a library, lounge, demonstration kitchen, and an outdoor patio with weather-protected grills for year-round barbecues.

Oh, and there’s no need to buy a gym membership, because Studio Fit is the tower’s one-stop-fitness zone, featuring the latest assortment of cardio and weight training equipment (like the insanely cool Freedom Wall Climber, a rock climbing-meets-running machine), in addition to a set of functional training tools.

But, the top floors are where living in a high-rise really attracts. The Viewpoint offers a unique eastern view across Capitol Hill to Bellevue and the Cascade Range, all while entertaining guests with a dinner party or movie on the big screen. The Viewpoint is set up for intimate gatherings or simply a quiet night out of your own apartment overlooking our beautiful Pacific Northwest landscape.

Add all of that to the rooftop Broadway Terrace, which features a food-producing greenhouse with a variety of vegetable and herb plantings (as if the Whole Foods wasn’t enough?!), a host of outdoor lounge areas, and a dog run.

A do-good, neighborhood advocate.

The tower was developed by local real estate investment company Columbia Pacific Advisors. Through extensive collaboration with neighbors, businesses and area stakeholders, they understood the impact (good and bad) that new development can have on this area. Their number one mission was to ensure The Danforth was an active contributor, doing what it can to support the success of everyone nearby.

Forging relationships with three respected non-profit organizations in the area, Artist Trust, Country Doctors, and Seattle Humane, The Danforth hosted events and outreach that raised $15,000 for these organizations. The collaboration with Artist Trust is also evident in the dozens of amazing, locally-sourced art throughout the building.
