  • Case Studies

Maude Urban Living is a 7-story, 76-unit apartment building located in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood, built by Pavilion Construction. At an average unit size of 277 square feet, Maude offers efficient living from both an economical and resource standpoint.

The project further optimizes resources by utilizing Energy Star appliances, a common laundry facility, low-flow water fixtures, high-efficiency domestic hot water system, and effective unit ventilation. Other interesting features include an outdoor common space tucked behind the building for some respite from the hustle and bustle, no carpet in units, specified low-emitting building materials, and a secure bike room.

The health and transportation-oriented features of Maude extend beyond the property line through proximity to community services and a transportation options portal in the front lobby. Utilizing the “Transit Screen” service, the lobby is a transportation information hub, providing status on bus, light rail, share car, traffic, and weather. This is fitting for this active area near daily needs and with access to a King County Metro bus hub, I-5, and the soon-to-be-open Roosevelt Station, servicing Sound Transit light rail, all within one to two blocks of Maude.
