The Post apartment project will bring hundreds of new residents to the Pioneer Square neighborhood when it is fully leased.
The first residents will begin moving into the new Post apartments in downtown Seattle this weekend. The 208-unit, 16-story apartment project at Post Street and Western Avenue was developed by Seattle-based Goodman Real Estate.
It’s one of several housing developments that are expected to bring new vigor to the city’s historic Pioneer Square as the new residents support local restaurants and shops.
The apartment building is approximately 25 percent leased, according to Don Fosseen, Goodman Real Estate’s chief investment officer.
“The tenants are all across the board — tech workers, attorneys, doctors,” Fosseen said. Some tenants renting the smaller units live outside Seattle, he said, and are leasing the units for nights when they work late or for weekends when they like to come into the city for entertainment.
