If you’re in the market to buy a second home, Olive 8 has something special for you! A quarter of Olive 8′s recent sales have been to second homebuyers seeking an urban resort lifestyle, complete with access to hotel amenities and services. As a result, Olive 8 developer RC Hedreen Company has announced a marketing partnership with Alchemy Collections to offer turnkey furniture packages, with full price offers on remaining open one bedroom floor plans.

Olive 8’s location is an amenity in itself. With a Walk Score® of 98 and a Transit Score™ at a perfect 100, Olive 8 is within walking distance to downtown Seattle shopping centers, major department stores, theatres and parks. The South Lake Union Streetcar is a couple of blocks away, and there is easy access to I-5. Life at Olive 8 is also environmentally friendly. It was the first hotel/condominium development in Seattle to receive LEED Certification (Silver).

All in all, Olive 8′s Turnkey Package is yet another sign that the Seattle condominium market is not only stabilizing, but that buyers are beginning to view real estate as a lifestyle choice, and not just a commodity.
