Spire, a new 41-story, 440-foot-tall multifamily tower, has completed in Seattle. The luxury condo tower is the closest high-rise building in the city to the Space Needle. The VIA Architecture-designed project is located on an approximately 10,660-sf triangular site that provides views of Puget Sound, Lake Union, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and the Space Needle.

The slender tower includes a welcoming pedestrian environment at its base while the top two floors are dedicated to amenities that allow every resident to access and experience the panoramic views. Amenities are also included on Level 3 and the Ground Level and include private dining, a fitness club, a pet run, co-working space, a theater, bicycle storage, a pet wash station, and a lobby cafe.

The project also features Seattle’s first fully-automated parking system. Drivers will simply drive their vehicles into one of three transfer cabins, exit the vehicle, and initiate the parking process. The Sotefin system does the rest.

Floor plans are offered in one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Residences include natural wood doors, engineered hardwood oak floors, energy efficient LED lighting, Whirlpool washers and dryers, custom kitchen islands with pendant lighting, and quartz countertops. Five penthouses are also included on Level 39 ranging from 670 sf to 2100 sf. The project’s designers removed an entire floor of residences from the building and redistributed the volume to offer market-leading ceiling heights of 9.6 feet for regular units and 10 feet for penthouses.

Laconia Development designed the project.
