BROADCAST COFFEE

One of Seattle’s hottest new coffee shops, Broadcast Coffee, is located just around the corner from Iron Flats. Named Seattle Unexplored’s “favorite modern coffee shop,” Broadcast serves locally roasted coffee and espresso, pastries, oatmeals, and yoghurts.

ROOSEVELT HISTORY

Iron Flats is inspired by the roots of the Roosevelt District itself. The neighborhood got its name from President Theodore Roosevelt, and Iron Flats got its name from his birthplace, the Flatiron District in NYC. Iron Flats takes inspiration from the architectural style and materials of the Flatiron Building with beautiful brick details and metalwork in the lobby.

Even though Teddy was born in the city, his passion for the outdoors was apparent throughout his life. In fact, he formed our National Forest system, paving the way for our National Parks system, which was established just a few years after his presidency. Teddy made conservation, and a life in connection with nature, a top priority, and so do we.

Our story celebrates this legacy and our passion for outdoor spaces. Whether we’re unwinding with a quick run, biking park trails for the day, dropping a blanket for a picnic, or kicking back with a good book, there’s something about being immersed in the outdoors that energizes us and puts us at ease. Here at Iron Flats, you can relax and unwind. Here, you can create your own serene living environment, tucked away in a friendly and vibrant neighborhood, and surrounded by green spaces. At Iron Flats, we invite you to let the outdoors in.
