Seattle's Best-Selling Condo Buildings of 2014 (So Far)

View as Map

As Curbed is wont to do, we've asked our friends at Property Shark to compile the Seattle buildings that sold the most apartments so far in 2014. Despite the crazy number of new developments, many of 2014's best-selling buildings are ones that have been around for a little while—though the locations you'd expect are exactly the ones that are booming. Belltown continues to hold condo sales court but the Denny Triangle/South Lake Union area is hot on its tail. Interestingly, none of Seattle's buildings can hold a candle to Burien Town Square, which has sold 38 units so far this year, 50% more than the top Seattle spot. Please note that this list is ranked by sheer number of units sold through July 31, 2014.

1920 4th Ave

We're not saying that all 24 units sold this year at Escala are due to interest in Fifty Shades of Grey, but, we can assume at least one or two asked which units include dungeon rooms. The 2014 median sale price of $863,750 is the 2nd-highest in the city.

2. Mosler Lofts (22 Units Sold)
