The Cairns

Welcome to the Cairns. Comfortable Living for a Balanced Life - The Cairns Seattle Apartments

Tucked in the lively epicenter of South Lake Union, The Cairns Seattle apartments is a tribute to the neighborhood. A cairn, by definition, is a balance of stones designed to indicate a landmark or monument. We aim to live up to that name. Though we’re just as elegant, we’re much more than a heap of stones.

Our lofts are long and sleek, with high ceilings. The entire aesthetic is modern – from our appliances to our sundeck, where you can enjoy a sunny afternoon with BBQ and a view. Start your morning in our fitness center, then go to work. Or stay home and work. Our community business center has everything you need: large work desks, computer stations, and high-speed internet access.

Located in South Lake Union, one of the most energetic neighborhoods in Seattle, you’ll be immersed in culture. But the best might be just downstairs next to our building. A local market makes grocery shopping convenient. And next door is a German bar, where can indulge in quality beer and fine food – the perfect hangout.

Whatever you do, you’ll have a comfortable apartment to enjoy. Our gated community even has night patrol. Our building is pet friendly and we find a dog or cat make houses into homes.

Whether you’re interested in a short-term lease or an extended stay, we make it easy for you. Welcome to the Cairns in Seattle.
