Seattle is known for rain, not shine. But with the mass migration of wealthy Californians and tech money floating the economy, more and more apartments are being built with rooftop decks.
A rooftop deck can be a beautiful thing in a city surrounded by incredible natural beauty, especially when shared by apartment tenants and their friends. And with summer just around the corner, what better time to check out seven of the most spectacular rooftop decks on the market?

This place not only has a gorgeous view of the water and the mountains, but also comes equipped with two dog runs. Oh yeah, and a dog spa for higher-maintenance pooches.

Oh, hello, Mount Rainier! Throw a barbecue, look wistfully off into the distance, drink an entire bottle of wine yourself. The world is your oyster.
Avenue One — 2721 1st Avenue
Grills, cranes and the sparkling water below. This view is a heavenly treat for any aquatic-minded tenant.

Now here’s a sunset you can build a dream on. You can watch the Pier 57 ferris wheel spin, tourists mill around on the dock and the ships come to shore.
Walton Lofts — 2521 Western Avenue
The Walton Lofts rooftop looks more like a wedding venue than a deck. Host a dinner for your large family of eccentric relatives, snuggle with your loved one on the comfy looking patio furniture and gaze at the elegant cranes.
1709 Harbor Avenue Southwest
Here you get a view of the city from across the water. The Space Needle isn’t up close and personal, but sometimes we all need to see the bigger picture. A lovely stone fireplace gives this place something special.
1415 2nd Avenue
If you want to be in the center of the action, you can’t get anything better than this. Overlooking Pike Place Market, every day will be one crazy produce adventure.
