"The acquisition of Union Bay Apartments is consistent with Champion's simple mission to own and develop in "A" locations where people want to live," states Parker Champion, Senior Vice President. "South Lake Union has transformed into a critical economic engine for the Pacific Northwest and more recently the housing, daily needs, and lifestyle retail have followed the jobs."
South Lake Union is a fast-growing technology and bioscience hub to companies like Amazon, Dropbox, Google, Facebook, WeWork, the Paul Allen Brain Institute, Fred Hutch Cancer Research, and Zymogenetics. With an influx of young professionals earning substantial incomes into the South Lake Union area, Union Bay Apartments is in a prime renter's market.
Champion plans to unlock additional value by installing professional local management and providing residents with an upgraded, luxury lifestyle and living choice.
"South Lake Union is a true Live, Work, Play submarket," states Parker."With Union Bay Apartments, Champion has planted its flag in the Seattle market and we are looking to further expand our footprint there immediately."
