Marselle: A Building of Some Distinction

Filed under Belltown, Featured, Marselle

marselle_neSince July 18th, a new downtown condominium project named Marselle has received three offers (two mutually accepted), and their first buyer will be moving in September 1st. The most popular floorplan will more than likely be the 1 bedroom with den which varies between 832 to 854 square feet for as low as approximately $420/square foot.

Overall, the homes are your typical new construction units with slab granite countertops, hardwood floors, and stainless steel appliances. Other than Marselle’s competitive price point, there are some additional unique features we thought deserved some recognition.

The first thing that stood out was how great the rooftop deck was. The sales agent challenged that it’s the only rooftop deck offering a top to bottom view of the Space Needle, but the deck also has four separate common areas for chairs, tables, and BBQ’s. One area in particular had what the agent liked to refer to as a “doggy pad”.

The reason the rooftop deck at Marselle can be referred to as having distinctive areas is because of the 2nd story of 10 penthouse townhomes. Townhomes have their own sliding glass doors offering access to the rooftop deck from the dens, and one in particular is already plumbed for a jacuzzi (which they’ll throw in with a full-price offer).

Current Zoning, Height Restrictions and Planned Future Construction

We have a client who has expressed their concern for possibly losing their view on a new home purchase based on the rapid growth we’ve seen here in Seattle. In fact, we’ve understood that the possibility of losing a view is a concern for almost every homebuyer. Although there’s no way to guarantee that height restrictions will never change, or an existing building won’t be torn down, we wanted to do what we can to keep you educated so that your next purchase is an informed one. Use the map below to see what the city reports the current height restrictions to be, as well as what new construction is to come.

*Remember to always verify data before making your home purchase and do not rely on this information as if it is an authoritative source.
