Community Living in Seattle 

Freya is a new coliving community in Northwest Seattle designed around friendship, creativity and food. Built specifically for community, it has 78 private units with shared kitchens on each floor and a main gathering space + big communal kitchen on the ground floor. We’re launching the community with an artist-in-residence program, bringing together a dozen creatives to live alongside early residents as the community forms!

Private Space and Social Connection

The private units range in size from 173 to 342 square feet and have private bathrooms, small refrigerators, cabinets, countertops and sinks. Some units also feature lofts. The shared kitchens are the centerpiece of daily community activity at Freya. There are full kitchens on each floor and a laundry room that are shared amongst members of that floor. All but one floor also have a den off the kitchen. The units do not have stoves or ovens, better for reheating some leftovers and preparing coffee, tea, snacks and breakfast. The shared kitchens provide a fully featured kitchen for cooking meals.

Crown Hill Neighborhood

Freya is in Crown Hill – the sister neighborhood above Ballard – and located at 8311 15th Avenue NW.

  • 15 minute bike ride to Green Lake 
  • 18 minute drive to South Lake Union

Community Food and Events

Members have the option of attending monthly covid-safe member events with the whole community and the people on their floor. During these intentional community events people gather to share food and get to know their neighbors. OpenDoor will be actively supporting residents in setting up systems for sharing kitchens and groceries amongst themselves, including optional grocery delivery and prepared foods for an additional cost.


Affordable Housing Opportunity

We’re excited that 25% of the units at Freya will be priced for low and moderate income households under Seattle’s “MFTE” affordable housing program. If you think you might qualify, make sure to mention it in your inquiry!
