    It seems like there are a couple places to consider on Alki. I was looking at the Sidney as well. Any thoughts on how these 2 compare? Also, anybody planning on going to the BBQ on the 29th? The prices seem to make this somewhat appealing….

  2. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Probably the most noticeable difference will be size as the Sidney units are quite a bit larger and are being offered at a higher price point.

  3. Tony says:

    What is the address of this complex? Are there any photos of the building? Thanks.

  4. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Tony – the address is 3151 Alki Avenue SW, Seattle. Don’t have an exterior photo but I’ve mapped it on Live. Click on the bird’s eye option…it’s the “V” shaped building next to the light house.

  5. Tony says:

    Do you happen to know the developer on this project? Have you seen it yourself?

  6. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Tony – The developer is Steve Williams who is a custom home builder. He also converted the Candyce on Magnolia.

  7. Justine says:

    The units are about 330 square feet and the building is made out of concrete blocks.

  8. Christopher says:

    Concrete is better than wood because it’s much more soundproof, and the interiors don’t have any exposed concrete. The new high-end condos in Seattle are constructed with concrete.

    These homes aren’t huge, but they feel more like 500 square feet.

    The views are great, the bamboo hardwoods are very nice and the building is a short walk to the beach and Alki’s restaurants and shops.

  9. Christopher says:

    Justine- none of the homes at Lighthouse Point are that small. Please check the facts before you post :-) Thanks!

  10. Christopher says:

    Steve Williams and Joe Steele are the developers. They also converted the Taylor Anne on Queen Anne.

  11. Braxtan says:

    The original posting here is wrong. Prices range from $175K to $349K on the ground floor, $205K to $250K on the 2nd floor and $215K to $275K on the 3rd floor. Parking is included with someunits and can be purchased for $10K if it’s not included.

  12. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Braxtan – The initial release prices noted in the post was provided to me directly from the on-site sales team back in March and was accurate at the time. It’s great to see the developers are adjusting prices for the market.

  13. Stacy says:

    i would like to know if there are fire places in any of these units? How much are the monthly condo fees? Are pets allowed?

  14. Christopher says:

    Hi Stacy,

    Yes, pets are allowed. There are no fireplaces at Lighthouse Point, but the views are spectacular. The monthly home owner assessment is quite low. It’s based on the size of each home and it ranges from $143 to $294.

    We’re open most Sundays from 11am to 3pm, so please stop by if you’re on Alki on a Sunday afternoon. If you would like more information, please go to and click on “Our Listings”, or go to, or call me at 206.933.3034.

  15. Stacy says:

    Thank you Christopher,
    I live in Honolulu at the moment so can’t really stop by. I’ll be visiting again this April. Had another question, are the condos studios, 1bd, or 2 bd? If i choose to have a fire place, are there any regulatioins against that? thank you.

  16. MrsBoats says:

    I love West Seattle. I was born and raised there, and spent a lot of time on Alki. After marrying and moving away from the area, I am quite frankly shocked at where the housing prices have gone. A couple of years ago my husband and I paid $185,000.00 for a 2600sf home in the Houston, Texas area (2-story, brick home with land).

    I remember the Riptide Apartments, almost rented there. Are these renovated condos even close to 500 sf? (I realize they are geared toward single people, but I am not sure I ever lived in a condo or home that small as a single person.)

  17. Braxtan says:

    Hi MrsBoats- I agree: Alki is a wonderful place to spend time. With the beach and the views of the Sound, Olympics and Seattle, there’s no place in Seattle more picturesque. All the shops, restaurants and pubs on the main drag are great, too.

    Sounds like you had a nice home in Houston. A good friend of mine recently moved to a close-in suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina where he bought a nice 3000SF mid-century home on half an acre for less than $300,000. Location = value and there are a lot more people who want to live on Alki than in a suburb of Raleigh.

    The Riptide was a funky place, and the building has been completely renovated. To answer your question: yes, the condos are close to 500SF. They’re small condos, but there is nowhere else where you can get the amazing views, the superior finishes and fixtures, parking and storage and live on Alki.

    If you’d like to see how the old Riptide has been reborn, you can stop by this weekend. Our on-site sales office is open every Sunday from 11am-3pm.
