200 West Highland – Queen Anne

Post updated July 2008
Though it may have had a controversial beginning with the demolition of a 1920 apartment building across the street from Kerry Park, 200 West Highland Condominium (website) will be a nice addition to Queen’s South Slope, that is, if you can afford it. Prices are expected to start from $1.2 million.

The 5-story steel and concrete building will include just 25 luxury homes, many with commanding views of downtown and Elliott Bay. The two- and three-bedroom homes will range in size between 1,499 and 2,854 square feet. Home features include:

  • Open floor plans with either 11′ or 9′ ceiling heights
  • Hardwoods throughout with wool carpet in bedrooms
  • Top of the line appliances (Sub-Zero, Viking, Bosch), custom cabinetry and upscale finishes & fixtures
  • Slab granite, polished marble, limestone and quartz countertops
  • Two color/finish schemes
  • Ultra quiet Mitsubishi heating and AC units with a low 26 decibel output. For comparison, a whisper registers between 20-30 decibels.
  • Private terraces or decks
  • Two parking spaces and storage with each home
  • Fitness center
  • On-site manager

One nice feature provided is the water bug sensors for the appliances. Should the kitchen appliances leak, the sensor will alert the monitoring company who in turn will contact the owner.

Homeowner dues are $.55 per square foot and includes earthquake insurance, on-site management, maintenance and fully funded reserves.

Homes are currently available for purchase with a 5% earnest money deposit. The project is being developed by Lorig Associates and designed by Mithun Architects.

    Who is their right mind would pay 1.2 million for a condo in that area?

    Down I can see, but a residential neighborhood surrounded by houses?

    I’m hoping this one fails miserably. To tear down a 90 yr old apartment to build this crap? Please

    what about green construction? Seattle is supposedly a leader in sustainable/green building/development, yet I see nothing about this in the 200 West Highland info. For those prices, it should be VERY green!

  3. Rob says:

    The building is right across from Kerry Park, meaning all south facing units and most east facing units will have the best view in Seattle, a view that won’t ever be blocked by another building because there are only parks in the path of the view for quate a ways.

    The bottom line is that it is too expensive for a developer to renovate an older building. they’d MUCH rather teardown and build something new. In short, they don’t give an eff about history. And from the newly built condos I’ve seen, they also don’t give an eff about style.

    Kim – you sound like you know a few things about large construction projects. What corners are being cut?

    Hello, unobstructed views that won’t ever have a building constructed in front of them? Duh…that’s the value. Feel free to buy a $900K, 700 SF place in Allentown where you’re likely to have any views blocked by the next high-rise.
