The Waterfront is Yours.

Easy Rollin’. Our downtown Seattle location offers dozens of convenient public transportation options, from light rail to buses and even electric bikes. Two-wheel travelers will love the 4th Avenue protected bike lane through downtown Seattle. This lane now runs uninterrupted along 4th Avenue from Vine Street in Belltown down to Yesler Way in Pioneer Square. Future plans include connecting a new 2-way bike path along the Seattle waterfront near The Emerald that will serve commuters, visitors and families. Scooters are also a convenient way to hop on and get rolling. And, it’s easy to find your next scooting adventure around the neighborhood with Seattle’s Scooter Share program.

And if you work remotely, we’ve got the perfect floor plan for you! Working from home has never looked so good. At The Emerald, bright spaces with window frontage and expansive views were created with you in mind.
“During design we considered ways to make units feel more expansive. One way is maximizing opportunities for expansive views, but another was thinking about spaces that could open onto others. To us it suggested there were rooms “around the corner” from other rooms providing a sense of a larger unit. That’s what I like about the southeast units – the little spaces right round the corner from a main space.” ~ JULIA NAGELE Hewitt, Principal, Director of Design – Architecture
You Can Ferry There. Venturing on the water is easy from our iconic downtown address. Hop on a ferry today and start exploring nearby destinations. Throw on your sunglasses, grab a towel, and enjoy a ride across Elliott Bay on the West Seattle Water Taxi from nearby Pier 50 to spend a day at Alki Beach or take in the Pacific Northwest beauty of a Bainbridge Island ferry ride from the middle of downtown Seattle. The journey is stunning, but the destination this ferry ride grants you is even better. This easy escape from the city offers up opportunity to unplug with scenic vistas, beautiful trails, ultra-local wine tasting, and outdoor adventures. From fine food to the great outdoors, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
