Development of Period Buildings

The Christianson Development has created its most historically inspired building design yet, provoked from the intricacy and craftsmanship of the famous tilted Victorian homes photographed following the 1906 earthquake. This design achieves two primary architectural objectives.

It represents a genuine reproduction of a historical building that contrasts the current popularity of plain, masculine, and boxy structures. It also synthesizes typically disparate commercial and residential concepts into a unified design between all three floors, with complex and colorful details, and feminine and masculine shapes. The intention is to invoke passerbys to reflect upon our connections with artisans of past eras and to celebrate design. In the experience of remembering the past, architecture has the possibility of inspiring a community to grow and change.

  • “I had a great time renting from Eric here at the Christianson Development for a couple years. Any issues were promptly resolved and Eric was always very communicative for any needs I had. If I were to move back to West Seattle I’d definitely consider living here again!”

  • “Christianson Development has been great when I have needed help! They have responded really quickly when I have had any sort of issue. Very professional when having to reach out to me as well. There was an issue with the water needing to be turned off and they let me know accordingly before going in.”

    —Jackson Lukens
  • “I have enjoyed living in one of the best townhomes on Delridge – the Christianson Development. The owners are very professional and quick at responding to some of my knit-picking requests. They truly are the best. My vote for best townhome in West Seattle. Love this place!”

    —Wendy Gapp
  • “My partner and I moved into one of their townhomes almost a month ago and initially had some complications with ants and the water heater, but The Christianson Development team was very responsible, understanding and flexible with our needs.

    My partner had moved from NYC, I had moved from Michigan and we both work remotely from home. So from the first day we moved in we needed to have internet access and certain things ready to go.

    Despite needing to work during the day, The Christianson Development team was very respectful of our needs – including finding office space for us when they needed to replace the water heater and turn off electricity for a day – and able to handle all of the issues that arose efficiently and successfully.

    Any question or comment that has come up since the first week has been addressed quickly and kindly, and we are very happy here!”

  • “I rented here for two years and I was pleased with the maintenance response time and the overall quality and cleanliness of the property. Kaitlee is very relationship oriented and attentive to tenant needs.”

    —Diego Aguiniga
  • “The owners are accommodating, professional and outstanding. Love this place!”

    —Christine Wingate
  • “I loved living here. The management was great, maintenance responded swiftly whenever something needed to be repaired and the unit was beautiful. I felt very safe as the grounds were gated and locked. I was sad I had to move but have recommended the community to many friends.”

    —Debi K.
  • “The management team had been very friendly and willing to help my family when we moved in. They were very flexible and I would recommend them.”

    —Lillian R.
  • “We loved renting here! The rent is reasonable and the owners take pride in keeping the units up to date and modern. All service requests, or any other questions or requests, were responded to or answered quickly. I would recommend to others!”

    —Whitney S.
  • “I’ve enjoyed renting here. The maintenance staff is quick to respond to needs (usually same day), the grounds are clean and well maintained, and the quality of the units is very good. The neighborhood is eclectic, but there are many nearby parks and the H-line is right in front of the property. There is a hidden gem in the form of the Longfellow Creek walking trail, which you can enter off of Brandon st. It’s a quiet walk that follows Longfellow creek which is extensive and feels like you are not inside a big city.”

    —Martin H.
  • “I lived in the development for three years and had a wonderful experience. The townhome was fresh and bright. All service requests were handled immediately. The management was always extremely helpful and thoughtful. I highly recommend this townhome development.”
