Here is your chance to get a look inside the Jasper at 8606 35th Ave NE, the first new apartment building to be built in the Wedgwood neighborhood in more than sixty years. Brian Miller, manager of the Jasper, cordially invites all Wedgwoodians to come to an Open House at the Jasper on Saturday, October 20, from 9 to 5. Coffee and donuts, too!
Apartments at the Jasper were being pre-leased even before the opening day in July 2012, and the building’s 91 units are now almost all rented. At the Open House you will be able to see the remaining vacant units, the resident lounge area and the rooftop deck. At the sidewalk level, one of the live-work units will be open for visitors to view. A live-work unit is like a storefront but includes its own living quarters. The concept of live-work units is so new to the city of Seattle that it is not yet known how well they will function and whether they will help enliven commercial districts with needed businesses and services.
At the Open House you will see how the Jasper is displaying artwork from local artists, and a display of how the Jasper got its name. Please do come on Saturday, say hello to the Jasper and its management staff, and have coffee and donuts, too. See you there!
