The Emerald burst onto the condo scene in the middle of the pandemic. A new construction tower that sits directly above Pike Place Market in the West Edge neighborhood of Seattle. Unit 3605 is a Northwest-facing Penthouse – 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Although moderately sized, the unit has huge views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain range.

Number Four

Insignia Towers – North Tower 583 Battery St #4004
Sale Price – $3,580,000
3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms

Insignia Towers, completed in 2016 is special. Canadian developer Nat Bosa of Bosa Development finished the project just 5 years ago. Penthouse #4004 is a Southwest-facing penthouse with city, sound, and mountain views.

Number Five

Emerald – 121 Stewart St #3505
Sale Price – $3,556,662
2 Bedrooms, 2.25 Bathrooms
Neighborhood – West Edge

This is the second time Emerald broke the top 5 most expensive condo sales for 2021. This doesn’t surprise me one bit. Emerald is the first new construction highrise condo delivery since LUMA and Insignia Towers.

Number Six

Cristalla – 2033 2nd Ave #2302
Sale Price – $2,900,000
2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms
Neighborhood – West Edge

Cristalla has left its mark on the Seattle skyline. Look for the yellow-stripe design detail at the top of the 2005 built condo project. Great amenities include a newly remodeled rooftop deck – Unit 2302 is 2,218sf of luxury space high above 2nd and Virginia where it is located. The building sits just blocks away from Seattle’s Pike Place Market in the West Edge. Cristalla continues to sell at record numbers because the air-rights were purchased by the developer. In buying “air rights” the owners of West Facing units can sleep well at night knowing that a highrise can’t be built in front of them blocking the views.

Number Seven, Eight, Nine, and Ten

Fifteen Twenty-one – 1521 2nd Ave #2100, 2204, 3501, and 1700 (photos and listings c/o Sandy Justen, Julie Binaz, Jenee Curran, and Christopher Sadowsky)

The last 4 units in our top 10 most expensive condo sales all happen to be located at 1521 2nd Ave. This project is better known as Fifteen Twenty-One. It’s considered by many as one of Seattle’s most luxurious condo communities. Located on 2nd Ave directly across from Pike Place, 1521 has the ultimate staying power. Perfect location, big views, large interior layouts, and fantastic amenities.

That wraps up our list for the most expensive condos sold in Seattle 2021. I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, feel free to reach me at [email protected]
