The developer of a new condominium building, that will be built at 1516 2nd Avenue, estimates that they will start construction in the spring of 2020. The team behind the building are developer Plus Investment USA, contractor the Walsh Group out of Chicago and architect Hewitt of Seattle.
The development sits in the middle of 2nd Ave between Pike and Pine streets, across the street from luxury condo tower Fifteen Twenty-One. It will contain 524 condominiums and ground floor retail with approximately 269 parking stalls. There will be indoor and outdoor rooftop amenities on both towers.
From a design perspective, this will be a departure from your basic rectangular tower. There will be two towers, one 484 foot tower and one 160 foot tower, with a slender rectangular opening between them, though the towers will be connected. As previously stated, the design is supposed to look like a mom holding her child’s hand. They have also designed the alley side to have a porte cochere making the backside of the building more active and appealing.
More to come on sales.
