Downtown Seattle Neighborhoods with Luxury Apartments and Condos
Luxury living in the Pacific Northwest has few equals, and there’s no better place to establish roots than right in the center of it all: downtown Seattle. With a quarter of a million residents and over 35,000 residents in downtown alone, Seattle is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest. In the 2010s, Seattle was one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, and through the middle of the decade it sustained a growth rate of over two and three percent, making Seattle one of the most desirable places to live in the U.S. In fact, WalletHub published a report last year naming Seattle among the Top 3 Best Big Cities to Live.
As the jewel of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is home to dozens of luxury condo high rises. Whether you’re looking for a place in Belltown, Denny Triangle, the financial district, Pioneer Square, International District, Capitol Hill, First Hill, Queen Anne, or the western flank of First Hill west of Broadway, you have many options when it comes to luxury apartments in downtown Seattle. But not every neighborhood has the amenities and lifestyle you’d expect from a true luxury condo in Seattle.
Introducing The Emerald in the Pike Place Neighborhood
One crowning achievement in the highly desirable Pike Place Market neighborhood offers the latest and greatest in luxury living in the area with no compromises. Just blocks from the iconic Pike Place Market, where you can watch fishmongers throw the catch of the day in front of locals and tourists alike, sits The Emerald, a 40-story luxury condo building with residences featuring units listed at $500,000 reaching up to $10 million-dollar penthouses to delight even the most discerning buyer. With some of the best access to of the bustling nightlife and unique culture in the highly desirable downtown Seattle neighborhood, as well as breathtaking views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, The Emerald puts you just steps from the city’s best culinary and cultural destinations at Second and Stewart, which is definitively the epicenter of Seattle.
Unlike other Seattle luxury apartments and condos, inside buildings that are decades old, each of The Emerald’s residences are newly constructed, so you’ll get to experience true luxury living in your condo for the first time, without having to deal with someone else’s luxury leftovers. And with The Emerald’s rooftop retreats and various outdoor spaces that extend your home into a boundless luxurious experience, you’ll be able to entertain, take in the sights or just relax in the comfort of your downtown Seattle luxury escape, all without setting foot outside the building.
From the full-floor rooftop amenity space with indoor and outdoor lounges to catered media rooms and outdoor firepits with al fresco dining, you’ll find countless reasons to just stay in while the world bustles around you outside. Additionally, the building’s fitness center, open-air terraces and yoga studio means you can get a workout in at any time. When you decide to venture out, a 24/7 concierge and ground-floor retail — and countless other shops, restaurants and retail within blocks — means you don’t have to go far for the best that the city has to offer. If one you’d like to get out and explore greater Seattle over the weekend, The Emerald offers resident only on-demand electric Tesla Model X and Model S vehicles through a partnership with car-sharing company, Envoy. Clean, sleek and efficient vehicles will be there at the touch of a finger through the Envoy app. Additionally the Emerald has partnered with The Thompson Hotel to provide resident only benefits featuring discounts at the restaurants and bar, a special cocktail menu and discounts for hotel stays, parking, and more!
Owning At The Emerald
Dwell recently called The Emerald “the city’s most highly-anticipated condominium building” in “its beautiful surrounding landscape” and a “fundamental awareness and characteristics of the architectural design” that drives the overall design aesthetic. With only 262 residences, residences at Seattle’s defining address, The Emerald, are selling fast. It’s hard enough to find the perfect luxury apartment or condo in Seattle, much less have the opportunity to buy brand new. With unrivaled views and breathtaking amenity spaces, The Emerald puts you just blocks away from Pike Place Market and the Seattle waterfront, without the inherent risks of buying in an older building. Even if you’d prefer to stay home, your friends and family will appreciate the central location and copious amenities, never mind the meticulously designed and sprawling residences that give you privacy and quiet when you need it and an easy escape into a world of rich culture as soon as you exit this majestic building.
But don’t just take our word for it. Dujour recently profiled one of our stunning Pike Place listings, fawning over the latest $1.7 million condo listing and calling it a “stunning Seattle residence” inside the “tallest waterfront high rise on the west coast.” Aspire Design and Home devoted some coverage to The Emerald as well, discussing the challenges that went into what turned out to be a unique and picturesque design.
