The condominiums at 1521 Second Avenue are an elite group of 143 homes majestically standing over Pike Place Market in beautiful downtown Seattle. When 1521 was completed in 2009 it was already an award winner. The design of the building and the homes took the residential markets breath away.
According to Tom Parsons of OPUS Northwest Residential, the firm that developed 1521 Second Avenue, it "is the product of a dream team who shared a mission to develop the region's finest high-rise residential community." The team came together to build a LEED silver certified glass building which stands more as a sculpture than a condominium building.
The location of the 1521 Second Avenue building, located between Pike and Pine streets, could not be more perfect. Residences merely step outside of the elegant wood and stone entry into some of the most popular attractions in Seattle, such as Pike Place Market, Benaroya Hall, The Seattle Art Museum, and the Retail District. Living at 1521 Second Avenue you have your choice of top restaurants, bars and coffee shops right at your front door.

Each home is generously proportioned, with two bedrooms and grand floor to ceiling glass walls which overlook Elliott Bay, Olympia Mountains and/or the city of Seattle. Each floor contains 3-5 homes ranging in square feet from an average of 1,700 sq ft to 2,600 sq ft. As the west coast's most successful condo high-rise one can expect every detail in each home is well thought out and beautifully appointed. Each home leans more towards modern architecture using wood, stone, glass and metal to create a perfect balance to live.
The amenities of 1521 Second Avenue are second to none. At the beautiful front desk there is a 24 hour concierge staff to attend to any and all details, arrangements, recommendations or deliveries the residence and their guests have.
