Which of These Downtown Luxury Condos Would You Buy?

New, 3 comments

You're in the market for a downtown Seattle condo and you've got $1.5M to spare. Suddenly, two stunning two-bedroom units hit the market at the same time. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 737 Olive Wy Unit 3302 / 1521 2ND Ave, Unit 702
Price: $1.49M / $1.475M
Sq. Footage: 1,586 / 1,729
Beds, Baths: 2-BR, 2-bath / 2-BR, 2-bath

↑ We begin with this 33rd floor unit at Olive 8 where you're living tall and large (1,586 square feet). Stare out over Seattle from your big windows or drop the motorized Lutron shades when you want some privacy. The open kitchen space features new granite, pull-out shelving, custom European pendants & a dining fixture. Of course, living here also means getting to take advantage of top-shelf building amenities such as 24-hour concierge, spa, saline pool and more.

↑ Now it's on to Unit 702 in Fifteen-Twenty One Second. Considered by some Seattle's most sought-after address, it's another luxury building with first-class amenities. The kicker with this unit? A massive private terrace overlooking the Sound, not something most units gets. You get more space (1,729 square-feet) but some of the interiors are starting to get slightly stale.
