Bosa Development Corp is planning on beginning the first construction phase of a gigantic condo project within the next two weeks. There will be two 41-story, 335 unit condo towers in the Denny Triangle Regade, just a block or so away from where Amazon plans to build three office towers. According to the Daily Journal of Commerce Bosa’s president Natale Bosa said “construction will be done in two phases on a  full block site between Battery and Bell streets and Fifth and Sixths avenues.”

The construction plans include 36,000 sf of retail space below the two towers, a swimming pool, lounge area and exercise room, and 900 parking stalls. The project will cost roughly $350-$400 million, and the first tower is scheduled to open at the end of 2014. If the market turns around, and the first tower fills, the second tower will begin. The is the first condo development to be built downtown in five years! For more information, visit the Seattle Times.

Downtown Seattle Condos Starting to Fill Up

Downtown Seattle Penthouse Condo Available

The past two years have not been promising for the Seattle Condo Market, and condo developers are finally starting to see a turn around in the Downtown area. According to the Seattle Times, roughly two dozen new projects were at work between 2007-2010 during big the real-estate crash. Many of those who bought the pre-sale backed out and several developers ended up converting their buildings to rental units to cater to the economy. Those who stuck it out had to slash prices, and in many cases had to lower the costs by up to 40 percent.

Today the market is starting to look more appealing and beginning to have the first signs that it will bounce back. A few good indicators include Escala raising  some of their prices; one of the largest downtown projects to date, Escala did so quietly, with the majority of their condo units selling for 99% of the asking price, they’ve begun upping the anty as their inventory gets smaller. Also of the 2,500 condo projects that have been built in downtown and surrounding areas, fewer than 250 units is left unsold. There are currently no new projects in place; most developers and lenders have put condos on hold to allow the market to recuperate. If you’re interested in learning more about finding a condo in the Seattle area, here is a list of available units.

Four Seasons Private Residences Restructures Debt

Seattle CondosThe Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences located in Downtown Seattle was facing financial troubles after having nearly $34 million in construction liens, defaulting in 2009.  These troubles were much in part due to slow sales when the Seattle real estate market was beginning to fall apart.  The building opened in 2008 with 36 residences, which range in price from $2-$10 million.  According to a Seattle Times article published today, the owners of the building, Seattle Hotel Group LLC, have dug themselves out of this hole with financial restructuring.   Last week, the Seattle Hotel Group received a loan for $26 million towards the debt, owed to Washington Real Estate Holdings.  For now, things are looking up for the ultra luxurious downtown Seattle condominiums.  There are eleven residences still for sale in the building.  Please follow the link to see one of these luxury condominiums full listing details and photos.

The Marselle is a new development located in South Lake Union.  I’ve had the pleasure of touring a number of units in the building (located at 699 John Street) and they are pretty nice, to say the least.  The units are priced starting in the $200 thousand range for a studio and the largest unit is a three bedroom.  The units have the same features as most Seattle luxury condos including hardwood floors, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.  The best view from the Marselle is undoubtedly of the Space Needle, which is only a couple blocks away.  Residents enjoy a variety of amenities including an unmatched rooftop deck, a game room, fitness center, yoga studio and private storage. If you’re looking for a new, luxury condo for sale in an excellent Seattle location, then check out the Marselle Condominiums.
