Sunday/ making Waves at Century Link Field

‘The Wave’ is one of a few newly constructed buildings close by Century Link Field (football field) south of Seattle’s Pioneer Square district.

The Wave has a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. The studios start at $1,500 a month, and the two-bedrooms can run up to $6,000 a month, depending on the floor space.  The Amtrak station with trains south to Portland and north to Vancouver is right there by these buildings, as is the light rail station to Seatac airport and elsewhere in the city.

Looking south towards Century Link Field stadium in the center. There is a new Embassy Suites hotel on the left, and the luxury apartment building The Wave on the right. These were constructed on the old north parking lot of the stadium. Fewer parking spaces are needed now that there is a light rail train stop close by the stadium.
And here is a full view of The Wave. It is a 26-story building with 333 units. The vertical mass is segmented into blocks that are slightly askew. The highly reflective glass reflect blue sky or the older, historic buildings from Pioneer Square close by. The south-facing units at the top actually offer views right into the stadium. Hopefully solid sound-proofing keeps some of the noise out .. or maybe most residents would not mind the cheering sound of the Seahawks and Sounders fans?
