Apex Co-op: We Own It!

Two units are available soon ✨ -- Check out the Live page for more information.

Way more than just another roomie situation, the Apex Belltown Co-op is a tight community at First & Bell where cooperative-minded folks, including artists, crafts-persons, activists, longshore workers, musicians, poets, plumbers, geeks, and all sorts of other good people have owned and managed the building together since 1984!

The co-op consists of two floors with 21 individual units: 10 units are on the second floor, 11 units are on the third floor.  Each floor has a community lounge.  The lounges are where we have our potlucks, parties, and meetings.  There is also a community deck located on the roof, with a little space for communal gardening.  Please look at the other pages for more info (links at top of page).  All new residents are hand-selected by the current residents.

All who live here chip in about 10-20 hours a month to participate in the upkeep of the cooperative.  In addition to your financial commitment to the co-op (described on the Live at Apex page of this website), there is also a sizable work commitment involved in living here.  Your co-op duties should be a willing priority in your life, not an afterthought or something squeezed in or performed grudgingly. 

​If you are interested, please head over to the “Live At Apex” page. 

Accessibility advisory: Unfortunately there is not an elevator and the co-op is on the 2nd and 3rd stories of a 3-story building, so there is a minimum of one flight of stairs to get to the co-op.

Note on fun: The co-op is a social, fun, and pleasant home with parties, game nights, craft nights, etc., but we want all applicants to be clear on the responsibility side of things.
