High-Rise Living: Sky High Above Pike Place

Simply Irresistible.

Imagine waking up to this view.

The 2,778-square-foot penthouse sits 38 stories above Seattle’s famed Pike Place corridor, making it one of the most coveted condos in the city.

If you wondering what life is like at the top, look past the $4,499,999 price tag and follow me for a tour as a 1521 penthouse homeowner.

As you arrive, the 24-hour valet will ensure that your vehicle of choice that day makes it back safely to one of your three designated parking stalls. As you enter the grand lobby, you will be welcomed by the 24-hour concierge getting to know you and the other 142 owners. High-speed elevators whisk you up the 38 floors at speeds of 1-floor-per-second. With a floor that has just two units, I wouldn’t worry much about running into your neighbors.

As an owner, you have access to phenomenal amenities. The view-terraces are breathtaking, and the roof-top sky lounge is perfect for endless summer entertaining.  Fitness studio, yoga and pilates studio, business center, playroom for children, bike storage, convenient pet area, private work studios, temperature controlled wine storage, and outdoor kitchens are just a few of the other luxurious amenities offered at this special project.

At street level you are one block from Pike Place Market and the Seattle waterfront. At 38 stories up, you are in a sanctuary of luxurious high-rise living. Ferryboats glide across your living room window, and sunsets draw your attention on a near-nightly basis (as long as the sky is clear, of course). Enjoy them, if you so please, from your private rooftop terrace spa.

A penthouse in one of Seattle’s most sought-after buildings is not an easy feat, but hopefully you can imagine what life is like “at the top.”
