About Us
 
Waterfront Landings Condominium
 
Waterfront Landings Condominium is located at Seattle's front door on Puget Sound.  Our three buildings are nestled into a prime location on Alaskan Way.  This 232 unit community is within walking distance of Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, the Ferry Terminal, Bell Street Harbor Center, the Marriott's Waterfront hotel, and a myriad of restaurants.
 
The condominium buildings are a continuous complex with five courtyards offering residents a private urban park space.  The units include studios, one bedroom, two bedroom, and three bedroom penthouses.  The underground parking garage has 384 spaces,  a valuable amenity in a downtown environment.  Views enjoyed by residents include Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, West Seattle, Port of Seattle, the Pier 66 cruise ship terminal, shipping docks, and Mt. Rainier.  The Sky View Terrace on the fifth floor of the center building offers an amazing view of the Seattle waterfront and all its activities.  The condominium also has a party room and kitchen, hot tub and exercise facility, and two guest suites for the use of residents.
 
The community atmosphere at Waterfront Landings is enhanced by a newsletter, "Tidelines", that is published three times a year and keeps residents informed about Association activities, local events, and resident news.  The social committee fosters community spirit through several annual and ongoing events including a Holiday Party, Cinco de Mayo Party, Movie Nights, Dinner Out at local restaurants, and Committee and Staff Appreciation event.  Waterfront Landings Condominium is a vibrant and dynamic community within the downtown neighborhood and city.
 
 
Some History About the Development and Milestone Events at Waterfront Landings
 
In 1994, Intracorp developers purchased property along Alaskan Way for the development of Waterfront Landings (WFL).  The plan included three buildings with a total of 232 units.  Construction of the Viaggio building, the most southerly of the three WFL buildings, was completed in May 1997, with the Lumiere building being completed in September 1997, and the Minato building in December 1997.  The developers named each of the three buildings.  Both exteriors and interiors were made to look unique for each building.  The first building was named Viaggio (Italian for journey or travels). Its interior was designed with a modern look.  The center building was named Lumiere (French for light).  Its interior was designed with a European feeling.  The north building was named Minato (Japanese for port or harbor).  Its interior was designed with an Asian theme. 
 
The first WFL Board of Directors was elected in May 1998, and the first Rules and Regulations were established in June 1998.  A fob system for building doors was installed for security in November 1998, and the Main Office was relocated from the Viaggio to the Lumiere building in 1999.  Security upgrades included a camera system for garage doors and main door entrances in 2004 and installation of a garage door fob system in 2007.  Many remodels and update of amenities ensued over the years including redesign and renovations of outside courtyards, clubroom, elevator cabs, exercise room, building lobbies, hallways in all buildings, and outside lighting along the front walkway.
 
Many changes have occurred along the waterfront and Alaskan Way.  In 1996, the Bell Street Center (Pier 66) opened.  In 2001, the first cruise ship departed from Pier 66.  Departures and arrivals continue today.  In 2003, the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel opened.  That same year the Waterfront Streetcar was discontinued.  Longtime concerts on Pier 62/63 were discontinued in 2005 due to aging of the pier foundation.  Then, in 2009 Ivar's Fourth of July fireworks were also discontinued.  Now the waterfront is gearing up for major changes.  The viaduct replacement tunnel is currently underway.  The viaduct may be removed as early as 2016.  The entire waterfront will be transformed into a pedestrian-friendly destination with park and viewing areas along Alaskan Way and with connections to the Pike Market above.
 
Change is coming, and Waterfront Landings is in the midst of all the excitement.
