Every prospective buyer in Seattle has a list of amenities that they’re looking for, and when you’re making a purchase, you shouldn’t have to settle. Seattle is an amazing town, but there are some choices that are better than others–some locations that offer everything you could want, while others fall short.
The Emerald, a luxury high-rise condominium complex combines all of the things you’re looking for in one sleek package, making it the ideal living space for the Seattle lifestyle. The Emerald has been designed with one goal in mind: to make it the perfect living space for you. Here are just a few of the many benefits of living in The Emerald Seattle.
A Perfect Seattle Neighborhood
You don’t have to sacrifice neighborhood and amenities just because you’re living in one of the nicest, newest highrise condos in town. While you may think that such a building must have been built on the outskirts of Seattle, that couldn’t be farther from the truth–it’s right down in the cultural heart of the city. Located at Second and Stewart, you’re in the center of downtown Seattle, with all that has to offer, and you’re only one block from the iconic landmark that is Pike’s Place Market, with all that comes with it. Great restaurants, great fresh food, great cut flowers–and you’re only a walk up the hill from the waterfront, featuring everything from the aquarium to the ferries to fabulous oyster bars and The Old Curiosity Shop. Everything you’d want in a Seattle experience is right outside your door.
But that’s just in one direction! What about heading east? Coffee shops like Anchorhead Coffee and Victrola Coffee Roasters are just a quick walk into the city, and for fine dining try RN74 or Patagon–or a dozen other places within walking distance. This is a city designed for walking, and The Emerald Seattle is in the center hub of all the action.
With the views offered from your condo, you may never wish to leave it–breathtaking seascapes of Puget Sound on one side, and snow-capped mountains on the other: Mt. Ranier, the Cascades–you are in the center of a panorama of beauty. But should you wish to venture out and experience more of what the neighborhood has in store, you could do worse than to walk or bike to any of the clubs, cruises, tours, and concert venues. There’s always something to do around the city, whether that’s admiring the city from the Space Needle’s 520-foot high observation deck or catching a laser show at the Pacific Science Center. Brewery tours, cocktail cruises, and food married to music are all common fare for Downtown Seattle.
Whether you gravitate toward quiet nights on the Puget Sound or a rock concert with friends, a truly luxurious apartment keeps you close to the action you crave.
A person’s day-to-day commute is one of the most important factors when choosing a new place to live. The time you spend commuting can add up significantly over the year, so having that extra time to spend doing things you enjoy can make a surprising difference when you move to a better location.
With dozens of public transportation options, from light rail to buses and electric bikes, Downtown Seattle is an ideal place to live with various job opportunities, grocery stores and entertainment options in close proximity, regardless of whether or not you prefer to drive. For those with a permanent car-free lifestyle, various car-sharing options are easily accessible all-around town. At The Emerald, a luxury condo high-rise in Downtown Seattle, owners have instant access to carshare options through an exciting partnership with Envoy, an on-demand service offering electric Tesla Model S or X vehicles.
Close to Nature
Despite being in an urban center, Downtown Seattle is unique in its proximity to a variety of incredible parks and a range of varying natural habitats.
The Puget Sound features Elliott Bay, where locals can go wildlife watching and kayaking to all sorts of sights and islands. There’s also the nearby Mt. Rainier where hikers, climbers and campers can enjoy the great outdoors.
Seattle itself features beautifully groomed parks with everything from Victorian-esque greenhouses to Japanese gardens. A cozy downtown location replete with a beautiful view of the bay and its twinkling piers at night is a feature you can only find with luxury options in Seattle.
Let’s face it. We’ve just lived through a quarantine that has cooped us all up in our homes for months. Sometimes you can’t go to the restaurants or the waterfront. But what you can do is enjoy all of the amenities of a luxury condominium.
Aside from the magnificent vistas (viewable through floor-to-ceiling windows), the condos have so much more for those who are choosing to stay inside: custom wood cabinetry, quartz countertops, Bosch appliances–refrigerators, cooktops, ovens, and dishwasher–and a Whirlpool washer and dryer. And our bathrooms are every bit as luxurious as the kitchen and living space.
Beautiful Community Spaces
How much can you get out of a luxury building’s community space? At The Emerald, the building features a full-floor rooftop amenity space, the Olympic Room, where owners have an unparalleled view of the city and bay while cooking at an outdoor grill surrounded by warm firepits. When comparing fitness areas, does the building provide the necessities to keep up your preferred healthy lifestyle? It’s much easier to stay fit in communities like The Emerald that feature a fitness center, yoga studio, and outdoor pet run.
The Emerald, Seattle’s newest and most luxurious buildings, has announced a partnership with Columbia Hospitality. This premier hospitality management group will ensure that the service level for all residents will exceed expectations.
