Copperline interiors feature decks, interior courtyard in Point Ruston’s first large building

Point Ruston, the billion-dollar mixed-use development on the site of the old Asarco copper smelter near Point Defiance Park,  opened its first major building this week.

The building, the Copperline apartments, was started in 2008, but construction halted after the first three levels were built to wait out the housing bust. The building is being completed this spring.

The building has been repurposed from 99 condos to 173 apartments in the meanwhile.

Workers were putting the finishing touches on the eight-story structure last week.  Here are some snapshots from the interior.

The first residents are moving in this week.  The first merchants in the ground floor retail spaces are due to open in June.
