Limited-Time Price Reductions Lure Condo Buyers Back to Downtown City Living, 10 Residences Sold Last Month.

SEATTLE – Laconia Development announced today the relaunch of sales at Spire, the $350 million, 41-story luxury condominium tower in the heart of Downtown Seattle, with limited-time price reductions and incentives in advance of the building’s opening later this summer. In March, Spire accomplished incredible success by selling 10 condominiums in less than 30 days— showcasing strong interest from buyers.


Laconia has hired Polaris Pacific, the leading real estate sales and marketing group for today’s new residential communities in the western U.S., to reposition and realign Spire in the marketplace. As a result, pricing on one- and two-bedroom residences have been discounted by as much as 10 percent with residences starting from the high $400,000s.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic led to a migration of urban dwellers from America’s big cities, including Seattle, to more suburban areas. Yet, the seemingly temporary shift has led to price increases in the suburbs, scarcity of inventory and bidding wars that have left many people frustrated and unsuccessful in the homebuying process. However, the desire for homeownership remains a key part of the American Dream.

“It’s no secret that the pandemic has impacted the condominium market in major cities across the country. With the end of the pandemic in sight, we want to react to what has happened by offering a significant, limited-time discount on many of the residences at Spire,” said Paul Menzies, CEO of Laconia. “We quietly introduced the new pricing last month and we’ve already seen increased demand with 10 sales in just four weeks. It’s our hope that this repositioning in the market will provide a finite opportunity for buyers to get a once-in-a-lifetime deal on one of the most intelligently designed buildings in Downtown Seattle with impressive amenities and unrivaled, breathtaking views of the Space Needle, Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker and the Olympics.”

In addition to Spire’s robust amenity offering, Laconia is also introducing a Concierge Program for homeowners, which handles home maintenance on a regular schedule, manages repairs and attends to all home needs for residents.

Spire is a collection of 343 luxury condominiums that radiates intelligent design, connectivity and convenience in stylish interiors with light-filled, open layouts. A brilliant architectural prism designed by VIA Architecture, Spire is expected to achieve the environmental designation of LEED Silver.

Located at the intersection of Denny Triangle, South Lake Union and Belltown, and just blocks from lower Queen Anne, Spire stands 440 feet above the city, and its sleek silhouette serves as the exclamation point to Seattle’s skyline. Spire is the closest high-rise building to the iconic Space Needle and is situated at the nexus of local culture, gourmet dining and world-class attractions, all while being within walking distance to some of the world’s most powerful technology companies including Amazon and Apple.

Spire’s extensive collection of inspired amenities includes Seattle’s first fully automated parking system, a dramatic two-story lobby with on-site café; verdant landscaping; luxurious co-working spaces; state-of-the-art fitness center and movement studios; a 24-hour concierge; a private theater; and the Spire Club at Level 40 with indoor/outdoor terraces and 360-degree panoramic views.
