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.

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.

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.

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.
