From the Daily Journal of Commerce, Sep. 27:
“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.
“‘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.
“’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.
“‘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.
“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.”
Damn those “older, white, homeowners” who are hoarding the wealth of the city in single-family zones!
