The 101 Kirkland awarded New Development of the Year

The 101 was just named the New Development of the Year by the Washington State Multi-Family Housing Association.  Properties from across the state were eligible for this prestigious award which was presented at the 2012 Emerald Awards ceremony last week.  The Washington Multi-Family Housing Association is a non-profit trade association serving the multi-family rental housing industry.

The 101 is a boutique apartment community located at the intersection of Lake Street and Kirkland Avenue (101 Kirkland Ave) in downtown Kirkland.   The 101 offers 66 luxury apartment homes with unobstructed views of Lake Washington and the city of Seattle skyline.  Residents can chose from a variety of studio, one and two bedroom floor plans with distinctive architectural features and high end finishes including upscale appliance packages and granite countertops.  The apartments are air conditioned and feature all wood cabinetry, in unit washer and dryers, advanced data wiring, and a rooftop terrace with barbecues and a fire pit.  Many feature private view patios for entertaining and all the apartments are pet friendly.

Located in the heart of downtown, The 101 is just steps away from the best that Kirkland has to offer, including shops, restaurants, museums and much more. It is the ultimate location where vibrant living meets convenience.  The 101 is in the middle of sophisticated arts, boutique shops, waterfront parks, inspiring cuisine and entertainment.  That means great city living with a small town feel.

The 101 also features 12,100 square feet of retail space with anchor tenant Bank of America. The building offers underground parking for all retail and residential uses.  The 101 is owned by R.D. Merrill Company of Seattle, the parent company of neighboring Merrill Gardens at Kirkland.  While The 101 and the senior retirement community operate separately, the proximity offers an intergenerational living experience.  Residents at The 101 can also take advantage of the full menu of concierge services such as housekeeping, car service and dog walking offered by the concierge at Merrill Gardens at Kirkland.
