Urban Visions’ Vision of Luxury in Pike/Pine Now Underway
- Aug 03, 2015
The turnaround of the Pike/Pine corridor continues at an accelerated pace, with yet another luxury development breaking ground. Developer Urban Visions recently announced that work is now underway at its Second and Pike Tower project. The high-rise will feature upscale residences as it joins a group of iconic Seattle structures such as the Russell Investments Center and Fifteen Twenty-One Second Avenue in the city’s Central Business District.
Occupying an empty parking lot at 1430 Second Ave., the apartment tower aims to help bridge the gap between the city’s retail area and the nearby Pike Place Market, joining three other luxury projects in the area. Units at 2nd and Pike will have an average size of around 950 square feet. The 39-story, 567,403-square-foot tower will offer residents a high-end amenity package including an upscale gym, glass cubes offering views of the city, a 6,400-square-foot sky-bar on the eighth floor and decks for the majority of units, as well as 244 parking stalls.
Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects provided the designs for 2nd and Pike, with the development team also including Magnusson Klemencic Associates as the structural and civil engineer. Urban Visions partnered with Japanese entity Mitsui Fudosan on the venture, which is slated for a 2017 opening.
