Set amid the serene greenery of Seneca Street, in the historic First Hill neighborhood of Seattle, stands the Luma Condominium Tower - a 24-story symbol of modern urban sophistication. It is notable as the first high-rise condominium to be built in First Hill since 1982, marking the end of a 34-year hiatus. The development, a collaboration between Lowe Enterprises and Weber Thomas Architects, was completed in 2016 and heralded a new era of design aesthetics in one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods.
Constructed from robust steel and concrete, Luma showcases a dazzling facade of glass and terra cotta. The tower offers 168 elegant residences ranging from 600 to 1,700 square feet. Housing options are versatile, ranging from open one-bedroom units to two-bedroom units, and even exclusive penthouses.
Luma prides itself on offering a luxurious amenity package that sets it apart in the city. This includes a 24th-floor rooftop terrace that provides unobstructed 270-degree vistas of the city, Puget Sound, and Mount Baker. In addition, residents have access to a dog run, seating and BBQ areas, an adjacent sunroom, party room, theater, private conference/dining room, and a cutting-edge fitness center. The development also provides underground parking, bike-storage room, and a well-equipped pet lounge.
Inside each residence, kitchens, dining, and living areas are adorned with engineered hardwood floors, and grand 8-foot tall entry doors set a majestic tone. Many units come with private balconies or terraces, and every home is equipped with washers and dryers by LG or Whirlpool. Kitchens are graced with full-height back-painted glass backsplashes, robust granite, marble slab, or quartz countertops, full-height pantries, and contemporary custom cabinetry. The luxury extends to the bathrooms, which feature Carrera slab marble countertops, custom cabinetry, undermount Mirabelle sinks, and Maxx soaking tubs in selected units.
Moreover, Luma is committed to sustainable living. It uses energy-efficient windows to optimize energy conservation. Its landscaping is designed with the intent to cleanse storm water runoff, reduce the need for irrigation, and expand green spaces. Even the rooftop terrace plants are chosen to aid in heat reduction.
With a walk score of 98 and transit score of 96, Luma ensures its residents have easy access to the city's array of attractions. Its exceptional location, coupled with luxurious amenities and breathtaking views, mark it as a standout offering in the heart of First Hill.
