SEATTLE (November 10, 2021) – Legacy Partners (“Legacy”), a privately-held national real estate firm, along with their equity partner USAA Real Estate, today announced the opening of Maris at 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW in West Seattle, WA. Legacy broke ground on the 306-residence community in June 2019.

Maris comprises two standalone buildings with a mix of studio, open one-bedroom, and one- and two-bedroom floor plans. The residences come with A/C ports, hardwood-style flooring, quartz countertops with a mix of subway tile and quartz backsplash in kitchen, gas and electric cooktops, and a full energy efficient kitchen appliance package. Many of the residences include air conditioning with smart thermostats.

“What makes this community so special is that you have everyday convenience without the everyday hustle and bustle,” said Kerry Nicholson, Senior Managing Director at Legacy. “Maris is in a wonderfully peaceful pocket of West Seattle that has some of the best views of the city skyline and Elliott Bay. We’re thrilled to open this community to those who wish to call West Seattle their home.”

Designed by Seattle-based Encore Architects, Maris has 261 parking spaces and 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, as well as on-site coworking space and conference rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness studio with a wide array of cardio equipment, bike storage, and electric vehicle charging stations. Residents can enjoy close proximity to West Seattle’s cafes, restaurants, and boutiques and access to the community’s rooftop outdoor and resident lounges that feature a kitchen bar, grilling station, and fire pits with direct views of downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay. 

Maris is a convenient short walk to The Junction, West Seattle’s hub for eating, drinking, and shopping local, and is across the street from a Whole Foods, LA Fitness, Orange Theory Fitness, and Trader Joe’s.

Legacy is offering four weeks of free rent to celebrate the opening of the community.
