SEATTLE -- “In the next five years, Denny Way is going to feel a little bit more like Manhattan.”
Dean Jones is principal at Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, which represents the upcoming Nexus condo project, so he’s supposed to build buzz for developers.
Still, no one can deny Denny Triangle is rising and will be unrecognizable soon.
Jones’ company produced a video of what the northeast corner of downtown Seattle is supposed to look like by 2020, showing 26 high-rise buildings in the area. The buildings are either currently being built or will soon break ground.
Most of the buildings will be high-priced apartments or condos, which will make the northeast corner of downtown a high-density area. Many of those buildings will be about 40 stories high.
Developers and Developers and real estate agents are trying to rebrand this area the East Village. They’re going for a New York City-like vibe.
“We have a lot of demand to be live, work, and play in downtown Seattle, so we are following in the steps of other pricier West Coast cities markets such as Vancouver, B.C. or San Francisco,” said Jones.
