The Bellwether Apartments provide affordable and market-rate apartments in a picturesque setting along the Bellingham waterfront, offering views to the city, San Juan Islands, and Olympic and Cascade Mountains. The project’s goal was to create additional housing for area residents, with convenient access to downtown and the surrounding area’s recreational opportunities. This 43,385-square-foot, mixed-use project features 42 units with a combination of studio, 1- and 2-bedroom layouts, and 57 parking spaces. A shared community area and kitchen, bike storage facilities, and a commercial space for local businesses are included at ground level. The project also involved paving, providing additional lighting, and creating landscaping along the Port of Bellingham’s existing waterfront trail.
