Condo buyers clamoring for new homes in the First Hill or Pike/Pine neighborhoods, rejoice. Luma Condominiums, a new 168-unit residential tower, is currently under construction on the corner of Boylston and Seneca. Scheduled to open in June 2016, the 24-story tower begins sales June 1st (2015).

A quiet retreat, with close proximity to Pike/Pine’s rich diversity and steps from downtown employers? Check. With recently released details on the building’s design and home prices, Luma is shaping up to be a truly special offering in a hot location, offering the best of all worlds.

A bit more about Luma: The building is being constructed in sleek black and white exterior glass. Rooftop amenities will include a jetted spa, club room, catering kitchen, private dining, library and outdoor grills. The first and second floors will include a concierge desk, pet amenities and a well-appointed fitness center. The lobby will feature dramatic custom art, and the elevator lobbies will showcase stunning floor-to-ceiling photographic light boxes. And those are just the shared spaces.

Luma’s homes come in three modern and classic color palettes, offering custom cabinetry, marble or quartz countertops, engineered hardwood flooring and high-end appliances. The tower features stunning views of the Cascades, Olympics, downtown, and Lake Union. Floor plans include open one-bedrooms, one- and two-bedrooms and four penthouse homes. Pricing was recently released and starts in the high $300,000s. But perhaps the most exciting thing Luma offers is its coveted location.

Buyers will live in the quiet, tree-lined First Hill neighborhood, just steps from the bustling Pike/Pine corridor. Forget your car, you won’t need it. Luma’s tagline is “Have Your Quiet, Live Your Loud,” and the building’s unique combination of design and location will certainly walk the talk. Luma’s residents will enjoy quick walks to the best that Seattle has to offer, including Melrose Market, Seattle’s top restaurants, killer coffee, swanky bars, and cultural institutions such as Town Hall Seattle and the Frye Art Museum. The new First Hill Streetcar line will stop a block away, and residents who work downtown will enjoy a walking commute. High-end grocer Whole Foods is even planning a new location two blocks south of the building at Broadway and Madison.

Luma’s sales center recently opened at 907 East Pike near Broadway. The center showcases a model kitchen and some seriously cool high-tech tools designed to help users take a virtual-reality walk through of Luma before it’s even built. The sales center is open daily from 11am – 6pm and is a conversation piece in itself. Stop by and check it out.
