In November of 1985, Starship (the Jet Age version of Jefferson Airplane) had a Number One hit with "We Built This City." (You karaoke singers know the rest of the chorus: "...on rock and roll."). While the song was written about San Francisco, it could very well have referred to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, home of music innovators like Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana and Pearl Jam, to name but a few of dozens of regional artists – past and present – that've changed the course of music and created the soundtrack of our lives. And it is with that legacy and synergy that Alto, an exciting and new concept in urban apartment living, is literally built on the foundations of music, occupying the very same downtown address that housed the Musician's Association of Seattle formed in 1898. A 17-story LEED Silver Certified high-rise with eco-friendly function. Live at Alto and enjoy a front row seat to the thriving and constantly evolving music and arts scene that defines downtown Seattle.
