From the Daily Journal of Commerce, Sep. 27:
[quoted]”Security Properties has an unusual offer for people who want to live in the 41-story Kinects apartment tower: Rent one of the six penthouses and the developer will customize it just for you. Lease rates start at $6,950 a month.[/quoted]
[quoted]”‘The construction team is holding back on starting 39th-floor interior work this fall to accommodate a limited pre-release window for penthouse customization,’ said John Marasco, Security Properties’ chief development officer, in a statement.[/quoted]
[quoted]“’We invite future residents to collaborate with a favorite designer, or to team up with one of our own, to imagine a space that is uniquely theirs,’ Marasco said. Security Properties will offer build-out allowances of up to $100,000, depending on the length of the lease.[/quoted]
[quoted]”‘We’re not aware of anyone else allowing this level of personalization in the Seattle apartment market, but we anticipate strong demand based on our research,’ Marasco said.[/quoted]
[quoted]”One rare feature in Kinects will be an indoor rooftop swimming pool. The tower will also have a concierge, lounge, ‘fire cave,’ ‘meadow,’ demonstration kitchen, theater, and game room, according to the developer.”[/quoted]
Damn those “older, white, homeowners” who are hoarding the wealth of the city in single-family zones!
