A new dawn beckons in Seattle’s Belltown district. First Light, the latest luxury residential tower by Westbank, is coming soon to Third and Virginia. A synthesis of light and glass, the 47-story residence designed by architect James KM Cheng will become a distinguishable landmark on the city skyline. Working alongside John Hogan, a Seattle-based artist who works predominantly in glass, the team of creatives conceived a podium with luminous glass veils to produce mesmerizing shimmer and movement.
The artistry contines on the ground level, where a Fazioli grand piano sets the tone of the lobby. Westbank commissions a new Fazioli for each international project — naturally, First Light’s will be customized by Hogan, who will pair the ebony body of the piano with a reflective glass keyboard and music stand. The elegantly understated lobby is attended by a 24-hour concierge, who is able to assist with booking a luxury share car or an electric share bike.
First Light offers a collection of well-appointed one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse suites. Characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows, quality Miele appliances and B&B Italia-curated kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, the residences are clean-lined and sophisticated.
In every direction there are sights to behold, including the skyscrapers that punctuate the downtown core, boats sailing across Puget Sound, and the snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier.
A wide array of fitness and lifestyle amenities are available to residents, encouraging healthy habits in addition to rest and relaxation. Located on the 46th floor, the Wellness Center spans over 3,000 square feet and includes a weight room, cloistered yoga and stretching studio, and sweeping views to distract the mind during cardio.
The Sky Pool and hot tub decks are adjacent to a Residents’ Salon — the perfect spot to host a private dinner, birthday party or wine-tasting event. You and your guests can unwind by the fireplace or watch the big game on the flat screen TV.
Ride the private elevator up another level to experience the Secret Garden, a verdant oasis featuring a Pacific Northwest forest-scape, glass surround for safety and protection, and additional Hogan sculptures commissioned just for First Light. For everyday convenience, the ground level also offers a Bike Clubhouse with bike repair stations and a wash-up area for your fixie, dog or mud-caked rain boots.
Third and Virginia is where Belltown meets downtown. It’s steps away from theaters, galleries and restaurants, as well as the Seattle waterfront, downtown business district and the tech epicenter of South Lake Union.
Prospective buyers are invited to visit the onsite Presentation Gallery at 300 Virginia to preview one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse suites. The Presentation Gallery is open daily from 11am to 5pm.
