It’s been hard not to notice the West Edge, a glass-dominated, 39-story tower sprouting up at the busy intersection at Second Avenue and Pike Street downtown. The Tom Kundig-designed tower will include 339 luxury apartments when complete, plus retail on the ground floor.
Although West Edge has many of the same amenities as many new apartment towers—a rooftop deck, a dog run, a gym—it attempts to stand out as especially luxurious, with larger apartment sizes and and extra-upscale upgrades to the common areas.
Floorplans range from open one-bedrooms at just over 500 square feet to a 2,703-square-foot, three-bedroom penthouse—although many of the units fall in a roughly 800-to-1,400 range. The units feature floor-to-ceiling windows, luxury appliances and finishes, and plenty of bathroom space—there’s at least one bathroom for every bedroom in this tower.
The eight penthouses, located on the top two floors, have customizable finishes.
Access to nature starts on the ground floor, with a seven-story atrium occupied by a live Tsuma Gaki tree. This story also has a concierge and a fireside lounge.
Other amenities pop in at the eighth floor, with a terrace designed for dogs, and on the rooftop deck, where the tower’s fitness center is designed for views. The roof-level amenities also include a library and entertainment rooms.
The eighth-floor space also includes restaurant space with outdoor dining and water views.
The building, developed by local real estate group Urban Visions, is set to open within the next couple of months. Rental listings for the building show prices starting around $2,000.
