This month, we are introducing a new feature to the SLU Review entitled #2HoursInSLU.  We ask representatives from our member organizations to tell us a bit about themselves and their business.  Additionally, we uncover what they do when they have a couple of hours free in our fine neighborhood.

Heidi Isaacson, Marketing Coordinator for AMLI Residential, was kind enough to sit down and chat with us about her life, work, and love of South Lake Union.  A lifelong Seattleite and former Sea Gal, Heidi spends most of her time out in the community connecting people with their ideal living situation.  She creates perks programs for AMLI residents that offer discounts to local shops and services, puts together fun activities like "Ping Me," a table tennis contest where neighbors get to know one another, and creates an outstanding living environment for all AMLI residents. 

When Heidi has a few hours to spare she grabs a chai latte at Caffe Torino and enjoys a long walk with her boyfriend Mike and their dog Ellie.  During the warm summer months, all three take to Lake Union on their paddleboards (Ellie shares her board with Heidi, of course).  A nice dinner at Cactus followed by a nightcap at Paddy Coyne's round out a great evening in SLU for this family. 

Heidi looks forward to enjoying even more of the area's amenities this June when they move into AMLI South Lake Union.  She can't wait to enjoy the serene 3,600-square-foot sky deck including outdoor entertainment facilities with a green roof, grilling station, firepit and views of Lake Union.  Ellie should be pretty pleased as well because their new home features a pet run and pet spa!

Thank you to Heidi for taking the time to talk with us.  For details on life at AMLI South Lake Union visit Link to full article online.
$60K in 60 Days

Community partner, Compass Housing Alliance, has launched $60K in 60 Days campaign. Support of the campaign will help fund Peter's Place, a day center and overnight shelter in Seattle's Central Area. Programs like Peter's Place provide a vital bridge for those who are homeless to reach the support and stability they need. 


Compass Housing Alliance also operates Cascade Women's Program, a transitional women's housing program in South Lake Union and will open Compass on Dexter, a permanent housing project for 74 formerly homeless families this fall.

Learn more about  the $60K in 60 Days program here.
Stability Fitness on Evening Magazine

Stability Fitness made its television debut on Evening Magazine.   They were recently featured on Evening Magazine. Watch the full clip here. Power PlateŽ is the same equipment used by the Seahawks! Stability Fitness offers whole body vibration with Power PlateŽ. They provide superior stimulation to the nervous system thus destabilizing the body more profoundly than other forms of exercise.  Watch the clip here.
