Got this press release from the Enclave marketing team. Seems like a neat project. I was impressed with the square footage and pretty sweet location. Will be interesting to see if they get some takers to commit pre-construction in exchange for the "introductory pricing." I'd want some kind of protection against price reductions as well as pretty low earnest money to consider an early committment.

I definitely would like to see floor plans before commenting…I do hope that the rooftop terrace has a (partial) roof to make it usable on rainy days…the use of “boutique” this boutique that always amuse me as, in France, this word is used, very often pejoratively, to mean a plain small store, as in “so and so has a boutique selling tacky souvenirs”. No connection whatsoever to style, luxury etc. Mind you, very recently a small, somewhat stylish, moderately-priced hotel in Paris has been referred to as “un Boutik hotel de style USA”… yes, with a K!!??
Boutique or not, waterfront real estate on Lake Union is a limited supply. These will be great long-term investments.
An investment is all about buying the property right. These things will NEVER cashflow as an investment at $1 million plus. You would have to rent them out for close to 10k a month. They are not waterfront and back up to an industrial office building where people stare down at you. They are too big and are missing the market completely IMO. I think they paid too much for the dirt and now have to try and get money out of it. Good luck pre-selling million plus townhouses in this market without a model. I doubt they break ground before summer of 2010. Great project though, just bad timing.
