I came across this condo in Madison Park the other day. It's a new construction building with only 3 homes, prices ranging from $995,000-$1,495,000. Not cheap but, it's in Madison Park so don't be surprised that homes are going for close to or more than $1m. The building is set up just slightly above the sidewalk on 1611 43rd Ave E.
It's an interesting condo. Unit A is a townhome style condo with 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. This unit is closest to the street and has a patio leading out from the living room. Although it is a ground level home, the adequately landscaped patio provides a little more privacy from the sidewalk pedestrians. This home has a bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen and dinning area on the main floor. The glass stairway leads down to the lower level which has a 2nd bedroom, media room, bathroom, and a smaller kitchen (without cooking range). This home has the largest square footage of 2,063 and is priced at $995,000.
Unit B is on the 2nd level and it's a 2 bedroom plus den with 2 1/2 bathrooms. Square footage for this home is a little smaller at 1,792. From the living room, you can see a little bit of street activity. There is also a balcony for this home.
Unit C is the penthouse on the 3rd level. It is also a 2 bedroom plus den with 2 1/2 bathrooms similar to Unit B except that it has a glass stairway leading up to a 948 square foot roof top deck. The penthouse has skylights in the kitchen and entry area. From the living area, there is a pretty good water view of Lake Washington.

Here are some cool features for this 3-story condo building:
1.) Unit B and C have a private keyed elevator entry.
2.) All the homes are air conditioned.
3.) The Master bedrooms have heated floors.
4.) Limestone floors are installed throughout main living areas of all the homes.
5.) 6 burner gas stove, Viking stainless steel appliances!!
Overall, the building seems pretty solid for a non-concrete and steel building. Interior features are pretty high end. The main selling point is probably the location which is right at the end of Madison Park and steps away from the Lake. Except for Madison Lofts, I'm not seeing new condos in Madison Park so there is a pretty limited selections if you like this neighborhood.
They’ve been trying to sell these for well over a year now, already with a SIGNIFICANT price drop. The problem is the VERY odd lay out in each unit, especially the lower level unit – it can’t make up its mind what it wants to be (is it one home with an extra kitchen and theatre room, or is it two small homes in one?). Finishes throughout the three units are okay (some are nice, some are not-so-nice). I especially didn’t appreciate the cheap, CHEAP, CHEAP looking cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms. I also didn’t like the countertop selections in the Kitchens (again, looking more on the inexpensive side). The glass stair cases in the lower and upper level were pretty cool.
wood framed ..yikes
only way to live in condo is concrete steel
wood frame the worst
They won’t sell these! for the price, they are not worth it , AT ALL! They are goning to have to drop the price on these units by about 200K or so, to get people to even look at them. Just like at Madison Lofts, they had to drop the prices, and i would expect the same is going to happen at The Gallery in Belltown. There, the units are easily priced 100k, or more, over what they should even be listed as. I think Seattle needs to get real, and stop thinking that consumers are going to be paying these outragious prices any longer.
