"So far, so good! Moises is a fantastic maintenance man and he is very friendly! It’s a little cold in the morning. Does anyone have any tips for what to do to keep it warm while not giving all our money to SCL?"
"Great building and staff, but overpriced. We love the area and use most of the amenities, but the gym isn’t air conditioned which makes me less inclined to use it - thus making me feel like I’m paying more than I should be."
"Room is good condition, everything is working as we move in. Great amenities and quick response on any type of maintenance requests.
Parking garage is well maintained and bright, which alleviates concerns around safety."
"I've been living on the low floor of my apartment building, right next to the street, for three months now, and while there's a bit of noise when I leave the window open, it's been an overall pleasant experience.
One of the standout aspects of this place is the excellent management. They do a fantastic job of keeping the building clean and well-maintained. Whenever I have questions or encounter issues, the manager is quick to respond and efficiently resolves any concerns. It's reassuring to know that I have such responsive and capable management looking after this place.
I've also been impressed with the room amenities and design of my apartment. The attention to detail in the room design is evident, with the inclusion of high-quality home appliances that work efficiently, making my daily life much more convenient. Furthermore, the ample cabinets for storage have been a lifesaver, allowing me to keep my living space organized and clutter-free."
"We just moved in this week, and everything has been smooth! We were so happy to work with Irene and David to select our new home. The community services are great. We really wanted something with fantastic amenities."
"Alexan 100 is the ideal place to live! From location to mgmt... nothing compares to the location and the caring leasing team who goes above and beyond for their residents. You will not find a better place to live."
"The staff at Alexan 100 is fantastic- responsive and super helpful! The trash situation at times in the garage can get difficult with both Starbucks and WingStop piling onto resident recycling. The alleyway behind the building has also gotten super busy (and a little dangerous) with food pickup drivers grabbing orders from WingStop."
"I have been at Alexan 100 for about two weeks and am super happy. The building is quiet, and the staff and maintenance have been incredibly kind and helpful. I also feel very safe in the building. Not only for myself but my mail and packages. Very pleased with my decision to live here and can't wait for the future."
"Overall, happy with our experience and great staff :) the only areas that make for a less pleasant experience is the retail additions. Lots of recycling issues and often cars blocking the alleyway. I know there’s little that can be done about that."
"Living at this apartment complex has been a truly delightful experience. The apartment is spacious and well-designed, providing a comfortable living environment with plenty of room for relaxation, work, and entertainment.
The building itself is beautifully maintained and radiates a sense of elegance and charm that is not commonly found. The architectural design is modern and aesthetically pleasing, ensuring that you feel proud to call this place home.
The amenities are a significant highlight as well. Everything from the state-of-the-art fitness center, to the beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces, to the convenient laundry facilities contributes to a superior living experience. The management has certainly put thoughtful consideration into ensuring the amenities meet the diverse needs of the residents."
"Community is great. The area is not as great but that’s Seattle in general. Being that we cannot control the neighborhood, feeling same and comfortable in your home with the ease of everything you need close by is worth it. Management has finally settled in and I can say this team is the best yet."
"Overall my experience living at Alexan100 has been great! The staff is super friendly and helpful. We enjoy the amenities, especially for being dog friendly.
My 2 complaints are:
1. The utility carts are terrible and inconvenient. It's hard to maneuver and sometimes the handle will come off. It would be really helpful if they were to purchase a new utility cart that has a shelf (2 tiers), so it is easier to transport multiple things or a grocery shopping cart is also a great option.
2. The dog wash area is great, but you are unable to use the shower head sprayer since the pressure is too strong and hurts the dogs. The pressure needs to be adjusted or the shower head needs to be replaced."
"I have been a resident for over 3 years. It’s a great location and lots of storage for a studio with full size appliances. Management is very friendly and helpful in answering questions when they may arise. Definitely recommend!"
"I would say that in the past few months, things have improved. Still want to give 5 stars but eventual constructions, limited parking, and added noise from events, it might just be 4 stars. Still higher than most communities in Seattle at the moment. Management and maintenance is great and hopefully will stick around for a long time!"
"The staff is excellent, but the building overall is not worth the cost of rent (unless you're thrilled to be near the Climate Pledge Arena or Space Needle). The building finishes seem cheap (e.g., paint that easily comes off; "wood" finishes that peel due to the glue separating) and the area can be both loud and, sometimes, not feel very safe. It is within walking distance to a number of employers, which is nice, and a Starbucks and some other places have recently opened nearby livening up the neighborhood."
"So far everyone has been so friendly and helpful. Really love how festive it has gotten for the holidays. Even in the shared spaces and on the elevators people have been so kind. Definitely makes me happy I chose to move in to the Alexan 100."
"Planning on renewing my lease for a second time. Really have enjoyed living here. The staff and community has been great and has handled work requests, emergencies, and communicated to residents about new retail space."
"Overall, my experience living here for almost 2 years has been good. Staff is friendly.
I wish there was something that could be done for the pet area so it doesn't smell horrible by the end of the day."
"Alexan 100 has been such a great experience so far! They are very open with communication and also very details with “to do” instructions. I appreciate the open arms and wonderful welcomes I have recieved."
"We have lived at the Alexan100 for almost two years now and will probably be staying for longer. The location is great and is perfect for walking everywhere especially during the summer. Neighbors are very friendly and the maintenance and management team are great!"
"A bit of a dip in my current review for a few reasons. Parking has been stressful, and although 10 spots have been temporarily removed (construction), I've seen residents on foot open the garage and drive in with someone else. I've also seen multiple people come in together as a group after parking multiple cars. For $200 a month, I expect parking to be guaranteed and not to have to squeeze my car into the smallest space. I miss parking permits and towing cars that aren't supposed to be there. Second is the smell of weed in the apartment. I know this was addressed with signs around the apartment, but it still leaks into our unit. I trust management does everything it can, but in the nearly 3 years of living here, my perception of The Alexan has gone down. With 4 managers, multiple maintenance people, and the constant overturn of residences, it feels like it is losing its quality. I hope to see things turn around for the better."
"I have lived here since it opened and love the location! (Especially now since it is so close to the home of the Seattle Kraken!). I love how spacious the studio is and the unique floor plan with plenty of storage. Any time I submit a maintenance request I generally get a response within 24 hours (for non emergency) and management is quick to help me with any issues I may encounter. Quiet except for the occasional footsteps above me which is expected in an apartment community. Also great amenities and fun social events for tenants."
"Really love the location of the Alexan! Also really enjoy the attention to detail in the apartments, the finishings are clean and modern and the amenities offer great views of the sound! Also a great place for our dog to live, she loves it here!"
"Great community with wonderful amenities. The staff truly listens to their the tenants, and are constantly looking to improve the building itself, as well as what experiences they can provide for those living here."
"I like the fact the front is a key fob and if guests are there they need to ring apt in order to use elevator. I also like the fact that there is a bus route right in front of the apartments. Location is convenient and quiet for the most part."
"The move in process has been smooth and easy, David has been so helpful and kind on answering questions! The residents on my floor notice that I am new and are open to conversation, which is great to build a nice community"
"The staff is great but the amenities aren't up to the price point for the units (e.g., very small gym, no concierge, reliance upon 3rd party package delivery service) and the finishes are not great quality)."
"Possibly the longest residents - it's been great for the most part. Always some issues with management changes through the years but the staff has always been great, and the location is perfect for us to call home!"
"I really enjoy living here! Everyone has been so friendly in the building and the amenities are great! So many great locations within walking distance, able to really enjoy Seattle with the location. All of the details within our unit are very nice and I appreciate the quality of the appliances and window treatments!"
"Great place to live, walking distance to multiple parks, stores, and restaurants. Excellent commodities in the building. Pet friendly!
Management is very accommodating, respectful and top notch professionalism."
"I moved here last week. Great so far! Clean buildings, facilities, rooms! Nice sea view! I'm studying English, but the apartment managers and staff are all kind to me. I found my apartment choice to be correct."
"Great finish out, new building and convenient location. The units are modern and well appointed with big sinks, AC, new washer and dryers. The dog park on the roof is great. Suggested improvements would be bigger gym, and occasionally it can get loud outside with traffic and events, so double lanes windows would be ideal."
"The application process was very simple. The staff was very accommodating to my schedule in moving in. So far very pleasant:) I can’t wait to get to know some of the residents there as they have all seemed very nice. Garage parking has been very easy to find a spot and convenient. I thought there was going to be a problem with some of the homeless but yet has not been a problem so far. I am in one of the live and work spaces and so far everything has saved to be working."
"Great staff, and super great location! Close to everything and pike place is like a 20 minute walk. Definitely recommend for anyone new to Seattle or just looking for a place to live that’s in downtown but not in the middle of it"
"We have loved our time here so far. Everyone that we have met has been very friendly. The building is kept very clean. We love that it is walking distance to many of our favourite spots including the Eliot bay trail, the Seattle centre, and the likes place market"
"Alexan100 has been a really great place to live! I'm excited for another year here. The location is close to everything I need like groceries and restaurants, as well as attractions. The amenities and staff here are top notch."
"The staff is friendly and responds quickly to any issues. There is always parking in the parking garage and the spaces are spacious enough for a small SUV. I do not have any issues from noise from neighbors either."
"I was one of the first residents to move in and love it here! I love the location, full size appliances, plenty of storage space in my studio, friendly staff and great amenities! I plan to renew my lease again!"
"The staff and proximity to certain businesses (e.g., grocery; work; tourist attractions) is great (!), but the work-out room is small, and a lot of the finishes in the apartment seem easily worn down (e.g., "wood" finishes that are peeling despite very rarely being touched; flooring not connecting; seams coming through wall paint and floor boards in odd places). Given that renter's representative that walked through the apartment with me when I moved in commented on the ease of which damage could be done to the apartment, I should not be surprised, but I have been given the cost of the unit. Also, as compared to friend's units in the area that have a rooftop, the rooftop is small and a number of the amenities (e.g., grills) have often not worked when I tried to use them."
"Friendly and quiet place to live. Only complaint is that the garbage and recycling tend to overflow for days at time. It seems to get better at times but for a luxury apartment, I would expect this to be resolved."
"Tyler made moving in super fast and efficient. I needed to get in to my place a week earlier than originally planned and he was able to accommodate. Love the location, the apartment and the view. Only complaint would be lack of dog clean up bags on the roof and irresponsible tenants not picking up after their dogs. Left a set of bags up there yesterday to hope people would pick up but someone just stole them."
"The utilities are great, the design and layout of the apartment is very modern and stylish, and the community events are super nice. I love the location - not too busy but close enough to the city and the bay is a quick walk away!"
"Excellent staff and positive atmosphere here at the Alexan. The building is well maintained and in a very walkable location between the grocery stores, restaurants and shops of Queen Anne and the many restaurants and shops of Belltown. we are a short walk to a large waterfront park. I would recommend our building to anyone that desires living in this part of Seattle.
"Very clean and modern building. Dog spa is great for pet owners when they have to walk the dog on a rainy day and need to wash/dry before returning home. Staff is super friendly and always willing to get a problem solved right away."
"Staff is pretty friendly, and I really like the location of the apartment building. Everything I need is pretty close by. Only complaint is that since the Climate Pledge Arena opened, the traffic has been so bad around:("
"Whenever we’ve had any service requests we always get help within 24 hours which is extremely nice. The amenities here are usually always nice and clean for everyone to use and everyone that works here has been super helpful and kind. The only thing that would helpful is if someone could give or leave directions to use the heaters up on the rooftop."
"Great location (I see the Space Needle and Puget Sound everyday). Apartment amenities are modern. Lots of public transportation options. Neighborhood is safe. Only downside is the remodel of Climate Pledge Arena - it will be completed within a month so not a big deal."
"My apartment is great - spacious with great light - and the staff at Alexan is wonderful! The rooftop views are excellent, and the common areas are well decorated. The only downsides are (a) the gym which is very small and therefore less well-equipped, and (b) the area itself has been under construction (road work; arena work) since I moved in a year ago, which makes it hard to navigate and quite loud at times."
"Almost two years and I’m happier than ever! You’ll have to pry me from this place like trying to get a box out of the trash shoot ;) (sorry for that by the way!) The management, maintenance, and residents make this place like home."
"dislikes: things being broken despite my unit being brand new. bus stop in front of the apartment creates a lot of noise. can be hard to get out of alley where garage is. one exit my car bottoms, and the other exits to main denny street with lots of traffic
likes: staff is nice and responsive. finishes are nice. location"
"i love the rooftop, lounge, views, sunsets, safety and amenities. Alexan 100 is 100% with response time to a resident issues with anything. They let you know that there are here to help and help you with a personal feel. Thank you Alexan for being my home to entertain!"
"I like the quality of the furnishings etc and overall quality of apartments, but
1) repairs take time
2) lack of community events
3) weak security
4) presence of a community manager/concierge not consistent
5) pricey utilities"
"I’ve been here nearly a year. I’m a Seattleite living several neighborhoods & upper Queen Anne. I’m loving it despite our 1st Ave N being converted to an official bike lane & the Kraken arena parking garage construction. Building insulation is sufficient in muting the busy traffic noise. My unit is brand new with higher end appliances, vaulted ceilings & AC. Mia & Josh were extremely helpful in the smooth move in. Helpful & polite staff. Impressive clean common areas w/2 roof top views. Secured parking garage is a necessity. Mgmt did experiment w/ non-tenant paid parking which made locating a space precarious; it’s better now. Majority of tenants are pet owners, so the emergency rooftop dog lawn & the convenient dog wash are a solid touch. The outside units now have a separating metal gate that has eliminated Metro riders & strangers from entering the tenants’ patios. I can easily walk to the Sculpture Park, Pike Pl & local stores 4 errands. I-5 route is nearby;very centrally located."
"This has been the best apartment I have ever rented the staff here is amazing especially the maintenance staff If anything breaks they are on it immediately and very friendly, this apartment is also very safe requiring key fobs for every door absolutely love it here!"
"Overall good experience, amenities are clean and management is super helpful and friendly. Community is nice, no loud noise or disturbing neighbors. On top of quality apartment details, solid location and amazing view, it’s been amazing to live here."
"One thing I like about the apartment is its close approximity to the Sculpture park and its view of Eliots bay and Space Needle from the terrace.
The apartment is good with all the required necessities."
"Beautiful building with great amenities and staff really care about residents. Common spaces are reserved via Amenity Pass which ensures that there aren't too many people in one place and common spaces are cleaned routinely in blocked times. The staff, especially Mia, Josh, and Eric, are amazing. Mia has gone above and beyond the duties of a leasing consultant and Josh and Eric have been quick to resolve any problems we've had. The location is great, regular city noise and unobstructed views by the water. Covered garage parking, air conditioning, and respectful neighbors!"
"Staff was helpful and semi-fast at responding emails. I wish they were more clear about what’s included in the monthly payment because they never mentioned beforehand that we need to pay for internet and delivery service ourselves separately."
"The location and interior design is always my favorite part of Alexan. The only thing always bothers me is the dryer that never get fixed. The break always jump to the off side in the middle of a cycle. I know the maintenance tried to fixed it and came to my unit for multiple times, and we even changed the dryer machine. It just doesn't help at all."
"The parking situation has gotten really frustrating. People park terribly and eliminate very needed spots. I also see multiple cars without permits. Not sure what's going on but if you come home later than 5 it's hard to find a spot! Enjoy the other amenities, but a peloton tread and bike in the gym would really seal the deal! Maintenance team is awesome."
"I am absolutely in love with the Alexan!!! My apartment is brand new and was extremely clean on move in day. I love the fact that all the appliances are not only stainless steel but are also full size! I’m really looking forward to my next year here and hopefully getting to meet some of the other residents."
"Alexan is a great community - intimate with a lovely rooftop deck and spacious apartments. The vibe is young professional, and the lounges are comfy and well kept. The staff is wonderful. The only downsides are the gym is very small and hard to reserve, and the intersection can be quite noisy due to construction."
"The location is great, apartment layouts are well thought-out, appliances are top tier, and rarely have any issues with building amenities. The only room for improvement would be more communication between the leasing office and tenants."
"The complex is well maintained and the neighborhood is great! We always feel safe and it’s convenience is hard to beat in relation to stores and the highway.
The staff is great, would love to see management and owners take better care of their employees! We greatly appreciate the staff who makes our home great."
"We moved in just a few days ago and already have loved our new apartment. It is in the perfect location, and was in perfect condition for moving in. We mostly worked with Mia who had made our move in very quick and easy, and she was extremely helpful and kind with all of our questions or requests."
