Getting ready to finally open it's doors this summer, Luma enters the Seattle condo market just in time. Seattle condo inventory is down 17 percent from last year and median prices have risen to $599,000. Luma is trying to make condo living easier by starting with offers in the mid-$400K range. They'll also offer 35 different floor plans amongst their 168 units ranging from a 602 square-foot, open one-bedroom to a 1,721 square-foot, two-bedroom penthouse.
While you've been able to look at renderings of the units for a while now, we recently got a chance to step into two of their model units to see what a Lumo condo actually looks like.
The units we got to look around where the 861 square-foot one-bedroom Unit 209 on the 2nd floor and 1,189 square-foot two-bedroom Unit 301 on the 3rd floor.
Each place boasts gleaming hardwood floors and stylish design accents. Kitchen features that caught the eye first, with custom cabinetry, Liebherr refrigerators, Bosch gas cooktops and Brizo gooseneck faucets.The bathrooms feature under-mount Mirabelle sinks and water-saving Brizo lavatories and shower fixtures. Energy-efficient LED pendant lighting runs throughout.
In fact, energy-efficiency is a building-wide mission. Just some of the sustainable features include landscaping that recycles storm water, rooftop panels that reduce heat gain and high-efficiency plumbing.They're also targeting LEED Silver certification.
As for that rooftop, the view lives up to the hype as well. Clear views of Downtown, Queen Anne, Lake Union and beyond and many of the units offer great looks as well.
Some of the units have already been pre-sold but those interested in getting in before the doors open should stop by the Luma Sales Center at 907 East Pike.
