Bright Horizons Family Solutions® Child Care Center Holding Grand Opening Event Nov. 4th for 15,000 Sq. Ft. Ground-Level Retail Space within Building
Sammamish, WA – SeaLevel Properties (www.sealevelproperties.com) today announced that SAMM Apartments (www.LiveAtSAMM.com), its new 132,000 sq. ft. multi-family building located within the Sammamish Town Center in Sammamish, Wash., is more than 50 percent leased since opening in mid-August 2017.
“With so many distinctive features and amenities—including a large resident lounge, a well-equipped fitness center, and a relaxing rooftop deck with a fireplace and sunset views—we knew this building would come out of the gate in high demand,” said SeaLevel Properties Director John Shaw.
“Our new residents have been touting the building’s uniqueness, overall lifestyle appeal and its ‘downtown feel’ within a centrally-located, suburban neighborhood as prime reasons for living here,” continued Shaw. “We anticipate that SAMM will be fully-leased before year-end, and look forward to offering great new homes for more future residents while space is still available.”

Located at 22845 SE 1st Place in centrally-located Sammamish, Wash., the new SAMM Apartment building features six stories, 92 modern residential units—of which 18 units are provided as affordable housing—and 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space which currently hosts Bright Horizons child care center.
SAMM features a mix of studio-, one- and two-bedroom spaces averaging from 500 to 1,400 sq. ft., and offers numerous high-end elements—including gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops. Residences at SAMM Apartments offer keyless entry, linen closets, fully-sized stacked washer and dryers, walk-in closets and movable kitchen islands in select units.
Community amenities at SAMM Apartments include a 24-hour fitness center, a dog wash area and on-site bicycle storage.
