spire penthouses hit the market; hundreds attend “inspired living event” on april 25th

New Condominium Estates Up to 2,635 SF Showcased During Sales Gallery Celebration; SPIRE Now 25% Presold


Last Thursday’s sales opening for the newly-released penthouses of SPIRE Condominiums was marked by a dynamic “Sip + Savor + Soar” celebratory event. Laconia Development and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) partnered with local leaders in luxury to host a wine reception, featuring exhibition cuisine and live entertainment befitting the premier standards of “inspired living” that SPIRE homeowners will enjoy at the in-development high-rise glass prism. Construction of the tower is already at grade and beginning in June SPIRE will rise skyward at the rate of a floor per week.


The event took place at the SPIRE sales center and model home, where attendees mingled during live music performances, enjoying a taste of fine French fare from executive chef Shawn Applin of Michael Mina’s acclaimed RN74 restaurant with wine pairings by DeLille Cellars. And new penthouse floor plans weren’t the only inspiration in display: the event also showcased Park Place Aston Martin’s luxury 2019 Vantage Coupe, furnishings by Roche Bobois, and in-home technology by Wipliance.


“This is the first in a series of planned programs under the Inspired Living brand,” said David Antisdale, the event’s producer. “As Seattle emerges as a world-class city we will curate additional experiential events throughout the year. Luxury is right at home at SPIRE and in less than two years, we’ll be back to host the Grand Opening celebration within the new tower.”


More than three hundred guests joined a variety of lifestyle, event, and media partners who were represented at the event, including:


  • Laconia Development
  • Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty
  • The Antisdale Group
  • GeekWire
  • Delta Air Lines
  • UBS
  • Park Place Aston Martin
  • LUXE Magazine
  • Roche Bobois
  • RN74 Restaurant
  • Caliber Home Loans
  • DeLille Cellars
  • Wipliance
  • Seattle Magazine
  • United Way of King County
  • NHL Seattle
  • Butler Events




The SPIRE penthouses’ debut has been abuzz after Laconia and RSIR’s recent release announcement, unveiling the one-of-a-kind features including homeowner customization. Located on the 38th and 39th floors, the 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom condominium estates (752 SF to 1,995 SF) are now being offered, along with predesigned unit combinations creating up to 4-bedroom homes (2,365 SF). Limited time opportunities exist to create even larger living spaces depending on the creative desire of the homebuyer. The newly released homes and unit combinations will be offered from $1,099,950 to $4,999,950.


The penthouse floor plans will feature generous 10-foot ceilings and walls of glass with expansive views of the Space Needle, South Lake Union, Elliott Bay and the downtown Seattle skyline. Interiors boast European-inspired kitchens with real wood lower and glass upper cabinets, gas cooktop by Wolf™, a side-by-side refrigerator by Sub-Zero™, a wine cooler, and double oven (select home plans). Countertops will be a buyer’s choice of natural quartzite stone selections with waterfall edge detail for the island (if applicable) along with matching full-height backsplash. Plumbing fixtures will include high quality selections by Hansgrohe™. Most penthouse homes will also include a gas fireplace and a feature wall in the great room. Window walls will incorporate electric roller blinds with customizable automation settings. An integrated Smart Panel Pad-style system by Wipliance will provide one-touch automated controls for lights, blinds, and thermostat (with options for audio/visual coordination as a personal upgrade item). All closets will incorporate a choice of several pre-set modular organizers in premium finishes.


“The Seattle market is ready and waiting for true condominium estate homes,” said Dean Jones, President and CEO of RSIR. “SPIRE is an inherently rare offering for this city, and the SPIRE penthouses are an unmatched level of luxury. Interested buyers are encourage to act quickly.”


Surprise and delight were promised and the event producers did not disappoint. Guests also entered a drawing of gifts including:


  • A trip for two to Asia
  • Apple Watch
  • Aston Martin Driving Experience
  • Pike Place Market selects by Shawn Applin and dinner for four at RN74
  • VIP tour for four at DeLille Cellars Tasting Room
  • Day spa package by Gene Juarez Salon & Spa
  • $1,500 American Express gift card
  • Wipliance gift certificate for $500


“Of course, the real opportunity here is to make SPIRE your personal residence in 2020,” said Michael Cannon, Sales Director for SPIRE Condominiums. “Thanks to our inspired design and unparalleled amenities, our buyers will experience this sort of atmosphere and an authentic sense of community on a regular basis.”


Cannon reports twenty new home sales have been accepted in the past 45 days and more than a dozen prospective home buyers have inquired about the newly released penthouses. He notes SPIRE leads the market with generous ceiling heights ranging from 9-feet to 10-feet floor-to-floor, and it’s full block composition coupled with enviable tower spacing (not to mention the northernmost site in the high-rise zoning) means that homeowners will enjoy enduring views.


“With the release of the penthouses, we now have a limited window of opportunity for unit combinations and home personalization,” adds Cannon. “We invite prospective homebuyers to learn about our special designer allowances but they must hurry, as final designs must be completed to keep up with the fast pace of construction.”
