Tonight during the monthly West Seattle Art Walk, the new North Delridge apartment building Youngstown Flats not only will be open to visitors, it’ll host a reception for the 14 artists whose work can be seen around the complex. Youngstown Flats, now open to leasing and already home to its first tenants, is a new WSB sponsor; we toured recently to give you a peek inside. The art is not only outdoors, , but also in the public hallways of each floor, including the work shown above, and in the main lobby:

More ahead:

Youngstown Flats’ main entrance is on 26th SW – look closely and you’ll see “Continuity II,” by Jan Hoy, installed two months ago:

There’s also an entrance on the building’s south side, fronting Dakota. Back to the 26th SW side, which looks across to the mini-park space leading to Longfellow Creek, you’ll find the fitness room, which includes riding equipment with game-like features that include fun game-like features:

There’s also a water-bottle-refill station in the fitness room. The lobby also leads to a media room where movies or big-screen big events can be enjoyed:

Off the building’s garage, there’s a special area with ample parking for bicycle riders, and space to do repairs:

Youngstown Flats makes no bones about being dog-friendly. Also off the garage, you’ll find a dog-wash room (it’s not shown in our photo, but there’s some cute must-see decor on another wall):

Before you hit the dog wash, of course, you’ll be outside with your pooch. Maybe even right outside the building, where this turfed dog run makes creative use of some mandatory open space on the north side of the building:

Heading back into the building, we probably should take a look at an apartment – there are “urban one bedrooms,” 1 bedrooms, and 2 bedrooms (more on that here):

The building was designed as condominiums when originally proposed years ago, but built as apartments, so they’re larger than those you’ll find many other places. Some units have full balconies. And because of its design, there are lots of corner units, and lots of natural light from windows. Whichever unit you’re in, you can head up to the roof, gardens and comfortable places to hang out – with a view northward to the Port and Elliott Bay:

Big indoor gathering room too, with a kitchen, big screen, seating, and more:

Youngstown Flats will be happy to give you a tour any time, but tonight’s Art Walk event is an especially auspicious time to stop by – again, 6-9 pm. Other events are coming up too. The leasing office is open daily, and contact information is online here – its official address is 4040 26th SW; Youngstown Flats is on Facebook and on Twitter, too. (And they’re leasing live/work units as well as the apartments!)
