Hot Properties Heating Up Big Cities This Winter
The Emerald is one of Seattle’s most anticipated condominiums—a jewel rising 40 stories with 265 luxury residences (and penthouses) along the waterfront—walking distance to the piers.
Developed by Daniels Create World Seattle, the building boasts cantilevered decks and upscale amenities—a 39th floor rooftop indoor-outdoor lounge, yoga studio, pet spa and more. Sales launch in early 2019.
The Emerald is adjacent to the Pike Place Market, between downtown and Belltown. Hewitt Architecture and Design executed a creative space solution for the smallish 7,350-square-foot corner lot—as the residential building soars skyward, its floor plan expands up to 9,100 square feet in angled, cantilever form over its Broadacres Building neighbor to the south. These expanded floors take the shape of the shifting street grid pattern between downtown Seattle and Belltown.
The tower’s façade blends transparent, semi-reflective, and opaque glass in a clean, uncluttered architectural form. Two-story-high glass frames the first and second floors beneath an architectural cross bar buffer with access to third-floor amenities and an open-air terrace restaurant with impressive views of Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market. Susan Marinello Interiors is the interior designer while Andersen Construction heads construction efforts.
Roof-level amenity spaces and terraces boast unobstructed westward views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The Emerald residents can immerse themselves in the energy of Seattle’s famous market, vibrant waterfront and downtown commercial area mere steps from their home—a gracious welcome to The Emerald City and its namesake condominium.
