Welcome to the Downtown Seattle Waterfront! For those who are new to town or unaware, this neighborhood we call home here at Cyrene Apartments is located smack dab in the heart of Downtown Seattle positioned right across from the Seattle Art Museum, Harbor Steps, Pike Place Market, and The Great Ferris Wheel and the Seattle Aquarium.

So today, we are going to cover just a few reasons for those old and new to Seattle of why we chose the Downtown Waterfront as home for our luxury apartments here at Cyrene.

1. It is a convenient location that’s walkable and allows for easy commutes

We consider an integral part of city living to be being able to walk to things locally and to be able to easily hop on and off a bus, train, or water taxi at any point and minimize your environmental footprint and get to your destination quickly and efficiently. Living on the Downtown Seattle Waterfront at Cyrene Apartments offers all those options. We could not be happier to see our residents leave our building and mozy to dinner, drinks, the public market, or any of the hundreds of local attractions right at our doorstep. The world is truly your oyster here in the Downtown Waterfront.

2. Access to some fantastic and diverse cultural attractions

Downtown living has many advantages and here on the Seattle Waterfront, we are fortunate to have a nearly endless supply of amazing cultural and diverse attractions that will peak anyone’s interest. Start your cultural tour of Seattle at the Seattle Museum of Art, a world class art museum just steps away from our home here at Cyrene Apartments. Head over to the Olympic Sculpture Park next, a free-admission outdoor sculpture park that features both permanent and visiting installations. Wrap it up by either taking in a show at the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall, by witnessing first hand how pop culture has changed the world we live in at the Museum of Pop Culture, or check out world-renowned glass pieces at the Chihuly Garden and Glass. What isn’t to like?!

3. The Downtown Waterfront is an ever changing place with tons of fun to be at!

Part of living in Downtown is the every changing events and art exhibits that come to our city. We have written about this previous in a piece about the best concert venues around Cyrene Apartments, the best happy hour deals right around Cyrene (very important stuff!), and the top waterfront activities surrounding Cyrene as well. If none of that suits your fancy and shopping is more your thing, head a few blocks up to 3rd Ave and find yourself in the heart of Westlake Mall and the endless amounts of boutiques, stores, and outlets including Nordstroms Headquarters. From amazing concerts to art, from a delicious dinner to fancy cocktails, there is never a shortage of things to do in the Downtown Seattle Waterfront.

4. A place to rest, relax, and recharge.

Perhaps you are looking for more of a place to rest your head, relax from the hustle and bustle of life, and recharge your batteries. The Downtown Seattle Waterfront is the perfect place for just that. We have written about this previously when we covered the 6 best salons and spas around Cyrene Apartments. There is plenty of time to go exploring and be your cosmopolitan self. For now thought, kick your feet up and pamper yourself a bit.

5. Last but not least, we wanted to bring premium, luxury apartments to the growing and changing Seattle Waterfront!

To close out our list, we want to talk about why we personally chose Seattle’s Waterfront as our home. At Cyrene Apartments, we recognize that the Waterfront has quite a rich history. As the city of Seattle revamps and restructures the whole Waterfront to be more livable, commuter friendly, and walkable, we wanted to be a part of this community as it grows into the future. We have also written about the SeaWall Project, The Renaissance of Pike and Pine, and the tearing down of the Alaska Way Viaduct, each of which are strong indicators of the Waterfront’s promise.

We look forward to our tenants at Cyrene Apartments to act as contributors in this dialogue and ever changing landscape here in Downtown Seattle. At Cyrene, we are committed to making this Waterfront community the best it can be!

As you can see, it is not hard to see why we at Cyrene Apartments chose Seattle’s Waterfront as the home for our luxury apartments.
