Posted Date

Shoreline, WA, May 18, 2022 – Palo Alto-based Pacific Urban Investors has formed a joint venture with Seattle-based real estate developer Intracorp Homes for the development of Zinnia Apartments, a new four-building, 206,000 sq. ft. apartment community in Shoreline.

Located at the intersection of 1st Avenue NE and NE 147th St within walking distance of the future 148th Street Light Rail Station, which is slated to open in 2024, the new 4-story apartment community will feature 299 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Twenty percent of the new homes will be set aside for income-restricted housing.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Intracorp on the development of Zinnia, a project that will set a new standard for transit-oriented living in Shoreline,” said David White, Managing Director with Pacific Urban Investors. “Intracorp’s vision for the project, coupled with their execution of the complicated land assemblage, clearly distinguishes them as a leader in Pacific Northwest development.  Zinnia will be a special community for our future residents, and Pacific Urban is eager to identify new opportunities to invest in projects like Zinnia throughout the Puget Sound Region.”

“As the region becomes more interconnected, we are excited to deliver an extraordinary apartment community that will appeal to Shoreline’s current and future residents,” said Matt Robins, Development Manager with Intracorp Homes. “Zinnia will offer all the perks of modern apartment homes in a location that has quick connectivity and access to outstanding schools, parks and natural areas.”
