The 106-unit complex has a mix of one- and two-bedroom and loft apartments ranging from about 540 square feet to more than 1,140 square feet. Rooms are designed with soundproofing and large windows with views of the Olympic mountains.

Residents can use a rooftop plaza, dog walk, bike storage, community room, storage lockers, barbecue grills and an exercise area. Underground parking holds 88 vehicles.
Green features include solar panels, LED lighting, low-VOC paints, water-efficient plumbing fixtures and electric vehicle charging stations.
The name Keelson comes from the Swedish word for a boat keel, and is a nod to the neighborhood's Nordic history.
