Seattle – September 10, 2014 – Insignia in Seattle, the Northwest’s largest condominium development, is now more than 50 percent sold of its first phase. Construction on the project’s first tower (Phase One) has topped out and is on track to open in late spring 2015, announced Bosa Development.

Insignia’s 41-story towers designed by architect Perkins & Company will be located where Downtown, Belltown and South Lake Union intersect, just two blocks from Amazon’s planned 3.3 million-square-foot office building. Phase One features 350 residences ranging from one to two bedrooms, with prices from the high $400,000s to approximately $2 million.
