The Emerald, Seattle’s highly anticipated luxury condominium building set above Pike Place Market and the Puget Sound, has officially topped off its faceted glass building further transforming the city’s iconic waterfront skyline. Rising 40 stories above downtown Seattle’s most desired and soon-to-be-reimagined waterfront, The Emerald’s topping off signals the project is less than a year away from reaching completion and welcoming its first residents. Developed by Daniels Create World Seattle alongside a world-renowned Seattle-based design team, Julia Nagele of Hewitt Architects and Susan Marinello Interiors, The Emerald is the city’s newest striking architectural statement set to offer an elevated level of high-rise condominium living through 265 signature studios, one, two- and three-bedroom residences and penthouses matched with unrivaled amenity spaces and unobstructed views above coveted Pike Place Market.

“We intimately know the Pike Place Market and waterfront neighborhood, as we’re located next door to The Emerald,” said Julia Nagele, Design Director of HEWITT. “The design evolved as a response to its surroundings. It emphasizes neighborhood connections to Belltown and the transforming waterfront. The Olympic Room, sitting at 440 feet in the air is a favorite feature of the design. It’s a space designed to showcase powerful, unobstructed views of the region’s natural beauty. It is an oasis for residents as a unique contrast to the downtown scene.”

Designed for today’s discerning buyer, The Emerald features highly curated amenities driven to enhance the building’s premiere location and breathtaking panoramic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. Residents of The Emerald will have access to a full-floor rooftop Olympic Room, a breathtaking double-height glass encased club room opening to the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains with indoor and outdoor lounge and firepits. A third-floor outdoor amenity space designed with vibrant exposure to Second Avenue will feature an outdoor pet run, pet spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and chef-caliber catering kitchen. As a result of a recent partnership with Envoy Technologies, future residents will have on-demand access to Tesla Model X and Model S vehicles for opportunities to explore the greater Seattle area at their leisure. Additionally, The Emerald will be the first building in Seattle to introduce Latch keyless technology offering a seamless and secure flow throughout the building.

Located at Second and Stewart, The Emerald’s central location provides easy access to a vibrant mix of fresh markets, top-rated restaurants and bars, world-class museums, galleries and more. In addition to being within one block of the waterfront’s future redevelopment including the future overlook walk, the Seattle Aquarium Ocean Pavilion and various plazas and parks along the boardwalk, The Emerald sits 30
minutes from SeaTac International Airport and near Seattle’s growing tech campuses across downtown and South Lake Union. The Emerald’s new collection of modern high-rise homes are selling now with prices ranging from $500,000 to over $3 million.
