With one foot in South Lake Union and the other in Capitol Hill, this new high-tech high-rise is designed to support an active social life within its walls and right outside its doors. AMLI Arc (Arc), a brand new apartment tower opening in October 2017, is reimagining city living with an elegant but edgy interior and creative community spaces. Described as "deconstructed to perfection", the residential tower offers multiple floor plans, from open one-bedrooms to two-bedroom penthouses, all exuding the signature industrial-meets-refined vibe. Arc is a curated contrast of design details, with 41 floors featuring sweeping Seattle views and two floors of amenities built to exceed expectations.

Socialize close to home, yet 400+ feet in the air, on Arc's top floor, which houses a unique "underground" club, appropriately called 41. This expansive space feels part fashion warehouse, part swanky lounge and is available to residents for mixing, mingling, cooking and co-working. Amenities include an exhibition kitchen and group dining space, outdoor terrace, media box, game zone, collaboration space, private party room and the Edge Lounge with city views in every direction. This raw, creative space is as versatile as it is stylish.

Boasting a walking score of 96, the building is just steps from some of the best restaurants, shops and entertainment in Seattle. You'll find low-key live music and late-night liquor lounges, modern art and historic indie movie houses. With warehouse-y pool halls and Japanese karaoke, moody tattoo parlors and even a Turkish hammam, the neighborhood is bursting with vibrant experiences.


Adding a whole new twist to apartment hunting, Arc has adopted a tech-forward way of showcasing its homes via virtual reality (VR) tours. New to multifamily marketing, the tours feature highly realistic furnishings and materials to create an immersive experience. The tours highlight Arc's amenity spaces and a two-bedroom apartment with a high-fidelity representation. To achieve this, the VR designers used the model, layering on realistic furnishings, materials and site information, using custom code generated specifically for this experience. Similar to a custom video game, it was created using the popular game engine Unity. Built for the HTC Vive, but also adapted for any VR system through Google 360 video, the tours allow users to look, interact with, and move about this virtual environment as though they are actually there.

Whether you're remotely searching for a new home, or can't find the time to visit in person, the VR tours are a great way to get an idea of the sleek, urban lifestyle available at AMLI Arc.
