Continental Place may not have the fancier facades that you see in more recent condos but its simple and solid design commands a presence in the neighborhood. The location and amenities are probably its biggest selling points. It's only two blocks away from Pike Place Market and is one of the highly sought after condos if you are looking for a home with spectacular views of the water, mountains, city and Space Needle. Almost all the homes come with a balcony, although the majority of them are small. The building has great amenities including a 24 hour concierge, building manager, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, club room, and a rooftop deck with a nicely landscaped garden. This is a building that has a lot going for it: views, amenities, and location.
