Who We Are: About aPodment


Our residents are the people who give Seattle its vibrancy. We're passionate about providing quality and affordable housing and making Seattle accessible to everyone.


The Problem
Let’s face it. Seattle is a difficult place to find affordable housing. If a person can’t or won’t pay exorbitant rental rates, what options do they have? Apply for a government program. Pick a slum house. Share a tiny, expensive place with a bunch of other people. Or, find a suburb and let the daily commute begin.



Our Solution: aPodment® Studio Apartments

Calhoun Properties recognized this need within Seattle’s rental housing market. We’ve created a brighter vision — to honor the decent, hard-working people who make Seattle tick — by providing quality housing (and excellent service!) at affordable rates.


Our Company

For over a decade, Calhoun Properties has been developing and managing aPodment® apartments — small and micro-unit residential apartments with flexible short-term lease options — in Seattle’s bustling Capitol Hill, University District, Fremont, Ballard, and Northgate neighborhoods. Our mission is to ensure that a diverse demographic of Seattleites can continue to live in the city they love for many decades to come.

What do our aPodments offer?

aPodments are micro-studio apartments situated in vibrant neighborhoods around Seattle, including the University District, Ballard, First Hill, Capitol Hill, Northgate, and more. These innovative living spaces were pioneers in providing affordable and well-equipped rental options when Seattle was emerging as a tech hub, catering to workers seeking quality accommodations. Each neighborhood offers unique attractions and a diverse local experience. In the University District, you'll find hidden food gems, a bustling farmer's market, and an iconic campus with cherry blossoms, making it a hub for students. In Ballard, you can explore a vibrant maritime culture, while First Hill is known for its medical institutions. Capitol Hill is the heart of Seattle's arts and entertainment scene, and Northgate provides easy access to the city. aPodment buildings, such as Palermo, Morino, Cielo, Strada, Brava, Venetia, Troveré, and Avenida, offer a variety of micro-apartment layouts and amenities tailored to each neighborhood's unique charm. These buildings create the perfect oasis for students, tech professionals, and anyone looking to immerse themselves in the local culture of their chosen Seattle neighborhood.
