SEATTLE, Wash. (July 1, 2019) – Legacy Partners (Legacy), a privately-owned national real estate firm, announced today the groundbreaking of Legacy at Fauntleroy Apartments in West Seattle. The two-building community, located at 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW (seven stories) and 4721 38th Ave SW (four stories), will feature a 306-unit mix of one- and two-bedroom residences, as well as studios and live-work units. USAA Real Estate is providing equity financing for the development, with additional funding from PNC Bank.

Designed by Seattle-based Encore Architects, Legacy at Fauntleroy will have 261 parking spaces and 10,000 square feet of retail space, in addition to a state-of-the-art gym, media room, rooftop deck, and residential WiFi cafe.

“Legacy at Fauntleroy is at the center of everything West Seattle has to offer,” said Mark McKallor, Senior Managing Director at Legacy. “The neighborhood is perfect for those who seek the peaceful coastal culture of West Seattle coupled with the convenience of being near a vibrant downtown city life. Not only is it adjacent to a rapid ride bus stop – offering easy access to the CBD and Amazon’s offices – but it’s steps from neighborhood amenities such as Trader Joe’s, a soon-to-be-opened Whole Foods, retail and farmer’s market offerings at West Seattle Junction, multiple parks, and the West Seattle Golf Course.”

The adjacent bus stop serves lines 116, 118, 119, 773, and the Rapid Ride C Line. Other nearby neighborhood offerings include easy access to Alki Beach Park, West Seattle Water Taxi with access to downtown Seattle, Lincoln Park, Puget Park, QFC, Safeway, PCC Natural Markets, and Whole Foods.

Legacy has built several properties throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Milehouse in Redmond, The Hadley on Mercer Island, Bowman in Seattle, and The Maverick in Burien, WA. Their most recent development, The Triangle, opened in Redmond in Fall 2018.
