Downtown Seattle's Condo Trend

Recently it seems as if every new tower in downtown Seattle is converting to condominiums. It is an exciting and new trend, considering that for the past few years downtown residential development has been almost exclusively rentals. The coming increase in inventory is much-needed, and makes sense in response to the softening of Seattle’s rental market, and increased demand for condos as a cheaper single-family option.


Here are some of the biggest condo projects going on right now:


The 2nd Avenue Condo tower, a 45-story building containing 498 condo units plus ground level retail will be replacing the Chromer Building at 1516 2nd Ave. Developer is Pinnacle Plus (a joint venture of Plus Investment)


A South Lake Union condo project containing 113 condo units is set for 1170 Republican St. Developer is Plus Capital Partners. Construction is set to start in early 2019.
