Champion pays $24M for mixed-use property in Seattle's South Lake Union


Champion Real Estate Company has acquired Union Bay Apartments, a 73-unit multifamily apartment community with 2,976 square feet of commercial space in South Lake Union. The property was purchased by an affiliate of Champion for $24m and is located in a prime submarket of the core Seattle metro area.


The property was built in 1994 and has been family-owned for 23 years. It consists of generously-sized studio, one, and two bedroom units that cater to the various demographic groups in the area. The building also has one of the largest usable roof decks in South Lake Union with views of the Space Needle and Lake Union.


"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.
