1521 Second Avenue

1521 Second Avenue is one of Seattle’s newest skyrises completed in 2008 and is the highest residential skyrise in the city. It is very reminiscent of the style of highrise condominiums that are going up in nearby Bellevue, Washington. Even though this is not one of Seattle’s taller skyscrapers the building still stands out because of its frontward location and the gorgeous hue of blue that it displays. Now only if Seattle will construct a shimmering emerald green building to honor the city’s nickname, all would be well. It can be easy to get this skyscraper and Two Union Square a little confused if you are just viewing the top portions of them without any perspective of height or size. The Monorail Station was proposed for this site until the city voted it down in 2005. Want to purchase a condo? They begin at just $1 million and reach as high as $4 million. I will take five units please, thanks. Enjoy!
