Two new mixed-use multi-family housing developments — the Lurana and Views on Fifth — located in the heart of downtown Olympia are open and available for lease, the Olympia Downtown Alliance has announced.
Lurana, located on the boardwalk at the corner of State Street and Columbia Street, houses 44 apartment-style dwellings, a restaurant, a chocolatier, and a 1,500-square-foot retail or office space. It’s still available for lease as of mid-August. Approximately 75 percent of the apartments have been leased. The restaurant, ROW Seafood, will offer indoor and outdoor sit-down dining, as well as a walk-up window on the boardwalk for snacks like fish and chips and ice cream.
Then there’s the Views on Fifth. Three separate structures comprise this development. Located on the isthmus between Fourth Avenue and Fifth Avenue, “The Tower” of Views on Fifth encases the structure formerly known as “The Mistake on the Lake.”
The Tower is flanked by the Northwest Building and the Southwest Building and boasts dozens of one- and two-bedroom apartments, studios, and micro-units. The Northwest and Southwest Buildings house a restaurant space facing the park and the fountain, a four-story automated parking garage, and a number of live-work units that feature retail or gallery space on the ground floor and an attached apartment on the second level.
Approximately 25 percent to 30 percent of the Northwest and Southwest Buildings are leased and tenants are moving in. New residents of The Tower are targeting a mid-September move-in date.
