Seattle, WA. (March 12, 2019) – The first new condominium high-rise to built one block from the Pike Place Market in over a decade, The Emerald offers the finest collection of homes featuring protected westward views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
Residents will have the best of Seattle at their doorstep located in the city’s cosmopolitan hub for restaurants and retail, walking distance to over 45-corporate headquarters, and only steps from the future waterfront promenade that will connect Pioneer Square to the Olympic Sculpture Park.
The Sales Gallery opened in early March and in less than a week, a handful of homes are already under contract, including a 1,601 square foot penthouse. “The Emerald is designed to enjoy the natural beauty of the pacific northwest. The homes pinwheel around the site to take in a variety of fantastic views, from the city’s skyline to the Olympic mountains, said Julia Nagele, Principal, HEWITT. At HEWITT, we knew this was a special location and therefore the design had to be special as well. It is great having the endorsement of early homebuyers, that’s what matters most.”
An impressive Sales Gallery allows prospective homebuyers a catered experience with offerings from some of Pike Place Market’s vendors. It also debuts Seattle’s first interactive touchscreen technology which enables guests to visually compare floor plans and views side-by-side, in addition to a fully decorated model suite.
Situated on a 7,350-square-foot corner lot, The Emerald boasts an ingenious architectural design that expands up to 9,100 square feet as it rises. This elegant architectural expression results in a tall, slender tower that soars skyward in an angled form.
Floating at the top, at 440 feet, is the Olympic Room and amenity spaces with a wrap-around indoor-outdoor lounge, media room, a culinary-inspired kitchen, and outdoor firepits with al fresco dining to enjoy the year-round beauty of glimmering water, snow-capped mountains or summer sunsets. All the amenity spaces are intentionally not overly programmed to showcase the view and allow homeowners to use as they see fit.
A third-floor amenity space boasts a covered outdoor terrace along Stewart Street with views of the Pike Place Market, a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, guests’ suite for visiting friends and family, a dog salon and terrace.
With protected views beginning at the 14th floor, The Emerald offers three collections of homes with residences starting from the $500,000’s with larger than typical one-bedroom homes ranging from 600-800 sq. feet.
