LumaIt was just announced that Luma, a condominium tower in First Hill, is breaking ground this week. Located on the corner of Seneca Street and Boylston Avenue, this will be the 4th condo project to break ground since the recession but it is only the 2nd high rise condo project to begin construction. Insignia Seattle in Belltown is the other high rise tower to break ground and Solo Lofts and Vik, both in Ballard, are the other condo buildings currently under construction in the city.

What is right now an empty parking lot will soon be fenced off to prepare to excavate the lot, run utilities, and erect the crane that will eventually build the tower. The time line is to begin construction this month, open the sales center in 2015 and complete the construction by spring of 2016.

We will continue to follow the progress of Luma and will update you as we go along.
