1521 – Seattle

1521 Second is proud to have staked a claim in one of the nation’s top 10 neighborhoods. Pike Place Market, not even necessarily considered a “neighborhood” by most Seattleites, was recently awarded that distinction. Citing diverse occupants (high-priced condos and low-income housing), the plethora of things to do within walking distance, history and functionality, the American Planning Association was sufficiently charmed to bestow the honor. No doubt developers working with 1521 Second welcome the recognition.

Slated for completion in late 2008, 1521 Second will be one of Seattle’s premier luxury buildings. Amenities include lounge rooms, a yoga/pilates center, high-speed elevator, business center, concierge, children’s playroom and a rooftop deck that, at 400 feet in the Seattle sky, should be captivating. In residences, finishes feature 8′ solid interior doors, motorized bedroom blinds, custom cabinetry, slab granite counters and self-closing drawers. Appliances include Bosch washer/dryers, Wolf ranges and microwaves, Sub-Zero refrigerators and Miele dishwashers. There will be residential homes on floors 7-38. Each floor will have only 3-5 units – five toward the base, four in the middle and three at the top. Prices at 1521 Second start at $1 million.
