“At the NEXUS of Everything” Event on April 11, 2019 to Showcase Final Sales Opportunity; Neighborhood Growth

Executives of Burrard Group and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) attended the official topping off ceremony today for NEXUS Condominiums — a 389-unit, 41-story high-rise tower now standing at 1808 Minor Avenue in downtown Seattle. Having broken ground in March 2016, the two-year construction milestone signals the near-term delivery of the much-anticipated community. New listings include one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominium flats and Skylofts, exclusive to NEXUS, priced from below $1 million to more than $2.7 million with occupancy by late 2019 — the soonest amongst all the new construction condominiums in downtown Seattle. Burrard’s contractor, SKANSKA, hosted members of the design, construction, development and marketing teams during an afternoon celebration in observance of the milestone.

“We are thrilled to reach this pivotal accomplishment in our construction progress at NEXUS,” said Terry Bendrick, vice president of development for Burrard. “We share this excitement with our current homeowners, whom will begin occupying their new homes by late 2019.”

Burrard is planning a follow-up event: “At the NEXUS of Everything” on April 11th to allow consumers to witness the construction progress firsthand and learn of extraordinary changes taking shape in the neighborhood. Set within the Peak Lounge atop the Kinects building across the street, homeowners and prospective buyers will be offered a dramatic view of NEXUS while touring the Cityscape 2020 Exhibition: a gallery of new developments and residential amenities that will soon envelope the sky-high enclave on the rise.

“The northeast corner of downtown Seattle is one of the fastest-growing areas on the West Coast,” said Billy Mainguy, vice president of strategy for Burrard. “Our showcase will help create a spirit of place for future residents. It’s also an opportunity for new homebuyers to explore the informative exhibits and consider becoming a member of our community.”

New listings being posted to the NWMLS include a representative collection of the remaining NEXUS inventory as follows:

Construction of NEXUS continues at a brisk pace. Its iconic architecture is now in clear view as stacked cubes appear to be pivoting, offset by 8 degrees in either direction. SKANKSA reports more than 30,000 cubic yards of concrete has been poured in the structure — that’s the equivalent of a mile and a half of a typical interstate highway poured 100 feet wide. Approximately 159,000 square feet of glass will be installed or 3.65 acres of vertical surface area. More than 200 construction workers are on site each day, which will record 1 million+ hours of labor to build the tower upon completion. Other general development specifications follow:

  • Site Area: 14,400 sq. ft.
  • Building Area: 548,423 sq. ft.
  • Building Height: 440 ft.
  • Residential Units: 389
  • Parking Stalls: 316
  • Amenity Area: 18,132 sq. ft.
  • Retail Area: 3,658 sq. ft.
