"As we continue to experience strong demand in the high-end rental market in Seattle, particularly in the budding neighborhood of South Lake Union, we are thrilled to officially open the doors at Ascent South Lake Union and welcome our first residents to this distinguished building," said Aaron Keeler, Director of Development at Greystar. "We developed Ascent in response to the overwhelming market demand for condo-quality living in a high-rise apartment setting. With service and convenience as our key pillars, we have already received a strong response from prospective residents and anticipate a greater influx on the heels of opening our doors."

Ascent South Lake Union features common areas styled by award-winning Seattle-based interior design firm Susan Marinello Interiors, whose notable work in Washington includes The Private Residences at The Four Seasons Seattle, Hotel Theodore and Woodmark Hotel. The communal spaces were conceived to act as an extension of nearby Lake Union through the use of wood, stone and natural elements that are authentic to Seattle. Nautical elements throughout the building, including custom imagery of seaplanes, polished chrome light fixtures, navy color accents and camel leather, marry the lake lifestyle in a contemporary and hospitality-inspired fashion. A modern reflection of Lake Union's mirroring lake, the exterior of the high-rise was intentionally designed to resemble rain cascading down the building.
