Mack Urban and the Carlyle Group recently completed Velo in Fremont, one of Seattle’s most eclectic neighborhoods, with a well-known motto of “De Libertas Quirkas,” or “Free to be Peculiar.” Among the area’s diverse mix of retail, restaurants, local destinations and creative shops is a thriving community of Northwest companies such as Getty Images, Adobe Systems, Google, BEA Systems and Hale’s Ales Brewery – all of which bring a new creative class to the neighborhood.

Velo embraces the neighborhood’s ethos of creativity and ingenuity by designing a building that incorporates thoughtful and contemporary design with unique architecture and amenities. The design caters to the creative class by offering ground-floor live/work units that provide flexible space for entrepreneurial residents. Urban one-bedroom units feature large windows and sliding translucent partitions separating the bedroom space from the rest of the unit, creating a sense of openness and allowing for the inclusion of natural light. A spacious rooftop deck allows residents to mingle, barbecue, sip wine and take in the beauty of the neighborhood while enjoying the views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle. A creative business suite offers residents the chance to work from home in a comfortable and thoughtfully designed space that appeals to modern professionals.
