West Seattle Blog… | WEEKEND SCENE WEST OF SEATTLE: Admiral Station Apartments Grand Opening

Sep 24, 2022

The first major mixed-use project to be built in Admiral’s Quarters in several years is now open. A grand opening celebration is taking place until 4 p.m. today at Admiral Station Apartments (2715 California SW) – all are welcome to come and eat (handled by Husky Deli and Puerto Vallarta), raffle, loot and tours until 4 p.m.

We visited Admiral Station, which has 49 apartments – 12 already rented – earlier this week for an early visit. Here is what we saw:

The four-story building offers apartments ranging from studios to 2-bedroom/2-bathrooms, with rent ranging from $1,225 to $3,325. About a fifth of units have reduced rents because the project is part of the city MFTE program. Some of the keys are invisible but important – those facing California have triple-glazed windows:

Lots of flexibility with USB sockets as well as power outlets:

Building amenities include a rooftop terrace with views of the Sound and the Olympics:

From this rooftop dog run, you can also look northeast toward the Space Needle:

Another part of the roof has a garden with plants that did a great job of attracting pollinators during the sunny afternoon we visited:

The building has parking for motorized vehicles (46 spaces) – available for an additional $150/month (electric vehicle charger for $175) – and bicycles:

The garage has additional security features, from cameras to a high-speed roll-up door to multiple layers of entry security.

Facilities also include a fitness room with equipment including weights.

The building’s lead developer is a longtime West Seattle resident Paul Cesmat. He also showed us features in the lobby, including a parcel locker and nautical-themed artwork to go along with the building’s name – and more to come. Cesmat has owned the property, where his construction company once had its offices, for more than 40 years.
