Enso model homes to open

Vulcan Real Estate and Williams Marketing hosting a preview event last night for Vulcan’s upscale South Lake Union development, Enso Condominium (website:

I’ve been anticipating the completion of this project, which is one of my favorites, and it did not disappoint. The craftsmanship and quality of finishes met expectations. With its aggression pricing, Enso fits into the the mid-level luxury niche nicely.

I noticed that one structure apparently disappeared. Early in the design phase the little triangular lot at the corner of Denny and Westlake was supposed to be a wine bar lounge. It’s now a small park.

    A friend of mine is a supervisor at Sasco Electric who oversees a few of the Vulcan projects there and told me that the triangular lot was made into a park so that it could be exchanged for another small lot across the street where the discovery center is. I guess the small lot Vulcan is attempting to acquire is owned by the city and is the only thing preventing them from owning the entire block for another future project.

  2. Chris says:

    Yup, the lot where the Discovery Center is now is zoned to 11 stories I think and owned by Vulcan. I think there was talk about upzoning the area (while still stepping down to the lake). A lot of Enso buys are going to get a chunk of their view taken away in 10 years.

  3. Trish says:

    Chris, where did you find this information about the Discovery Center being zoned to 11 stories? Could you provide me with a link? Much appreciated!!

  4. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Trish, here’s a link to the city’s zone map. Map 101 shows that area is zoned SM-125′.

    Well! My boyfriend was looking into buying a ENSO condo and then decided to go for a different one because he also heard that there are plans to block views starting 10th to 14th floor. So, anyone who currently bought a places thats between that floors are going to have their view blocked which their condo will drop in price when they try to sell it in the future. Also, the HOMEOWNERS dues are outrageous! starting at 600 to 700 bucks for homeowners due! WOW! Too much. But good luck with everyone who buys one!

  6. Brian says:

    What are the HOA dues for Enso? I see one post says that they start at $600… $0.87 a sq ft. seems pretty expensive. I don’t think that Escala is even trying to get that much.

  7. Chris says:

    They WERE $.79 sf ft (Escala is $.79). I heard rumors they were going to drop into the mide $.60 range, but nothing recent.

  8. Chris says:

    Er, they “WERE $.72”
