2200_westlake_22200 Westlake which is ready for occupancy starting this month includes the luxuries of the attached Pan Pacific Hotel — including butler services, personal shopping,  limousine, in-home massage,  room service,  a beauty salon, and a day spa.  In addition, the development provides over 20 on-site retail shops and services. The recently opened Whole Foods Market is right below the hotel.

The three buildings designed by Northwest Architectural firm Collins Woerman extensively use floor-to-ceiling glass, architectural concrete, and brick and steel. The floor plans and interior decorating were done by Weber + Thompson.

Aria is an 18-story tower which also is home to the Pan Pacific Hotel. 33 Premium condominiums are located within this building.

Azur is a 12-story tower with 102 homes,

Arte is a 15-story tower with 126 units.

Top materials and appliances are used throughout the units. Floor plans include town homes, studios, lofts, one bedrooms, one bedroom +dens, two bedrooms & two bedroom plus dens. Homes range in size from 500 sf to 2,000 sf. While 2200 Westlake is currently sold out, the units originally ranged in price from $300K to over $2 MM. Ceilings are 9-10 ft tall with the exception of town homes where they soar to 18 feet. The condominiums boast air conditioning, central heating, and the luxury kitchens you would expect from a contemporary high end project.

Originally a joint venture between Vulcan Inc., Paul Allen’s development group and Milliken Development Group, the latter was bought out by the former in 2005 after 95% of the condos had already been sold and the much of the retail space had been leased. Milliken Development already had had a number of Seattle based retail successes including the Marketplace at Queen Anne and The Harvard Market.

2200 Westlake is Vulcan’s first hotel/condo development in the South Lake Union Neighborhood. Enso, Rollin and Veer Lofts, Vulcan’s second round projects in SLU are going to start their home selection process in January 2007.
