Burrard Group transforms city skyline and sets precedent with construction of NEXUS Seattle


Burrard Group transforms city skyline and sets precedent with construction of NEXUS, the first new mixed-use tower in Seattle’s burgeoning new East Village

Now 93% presold, Burrard Community Care Team launches to serve new homeowners. 

August 1, 2019 (Seattle, WA) – With just months to go until the completion of NEXUS, the Burrard Group is in the final phase of construction of a new architectural landmark and next generation mixed-use condominium tower that will be the first of its kind to complete in an emerging new multi-billion dollar urban living core in Seattle’s East Village. Construction of NEXUS was recently topped off during a special ceremony attended by buyers and stakeholders where the precedent-setting project was celebrated as an iconic symbol of an exciting new era for the community.

Now standing tall at the corner of Minor and Howell Street, NEXUS has reached its maximum height of 440 feet and 41 stories high, offering never-seen-before city and ocean views from a dynamic new vantage point. With its series of sky high glass cubes each offset by 8-degrees, NEXUS is elevating the East Village to new heights and turning heads for its striking architecture, modern design, outstanding technology, incredible amenities and central location, while attracting a range of buyers from high tech executives, business professionals, to local and international investors.

“It’s exciting to see our vision for NEXUS come to life and to build the first new tower in the center of a burgeoning new community,” said Christian Chan, CEO of the Burrard Group. “We’re very pleased with the progress so far and look forward to welcoming our buyers into their new homes early next year.”

Since presales launched in June of 2016, the project has been largely credited for kick-starting the condominium presale market and has become one of downtown Seattle’s most successful high-rise presale developments with 93% of the 389 units already presold with only 28 homes remaining. The remaining units are premier condos and penthouses comprised of one, two and three bedroom homes ranging from $1 million to $2.7 million.

With construction at NEXUS now topped off and the remaining home inventory reintroduced, the Burrard Group has hired a Community Care Team to focus on assisting buyers through the final process of becoming new homeowners. This specialized team will host a series of special events over the next few months to provide homeowners with formal project updates and details about the move-in process, while giving them a chance to meet and mingle with their new neighbours.

Once completed, NEXUS will offer advanced modern design meets state-of-the-art technology to create a never before enjoyed Seattle lifestyle. NEXUS will serve as a vertical village, where luxurious units will be complemented by common spaces that include guest suites, co-working spaces, a media room, Sky Lounge, outdoor entertaining areas with fireplaces and barbecues, and more. The NEXUS 24/7 concierge and security staff will not only attend to daily hospitality needs but also programs current selections of music, lighting controls and digital artwork scenes that range from vibrant to serene - a daily encounter in perfect calibration to the changing case of the city. Burrard Group has also programmed a state-of-the-art, all-in-one NEXUS Resident App that allows homeowners to control in-home devices with the opportunity to control climate, lighting, entertainment, security and window coverings. The app also integrates with the building systems like building access, home-front door, gym equipment and package lockers, and booking of building amenities, scheduling of classes as well as connecting with their community. At the very core of NEXUS is a comprehensive collection of specialty purpose rooms, furnishings, equipment and technology programmed to add convenience and utility everyday - for live, work and play.

The new NEXUS Presentation Centre for sales of the remaining units is expected to open in the Fall of 2019. For more information about the NEXUS Seattle, visit High resolution photos, interviews and site tours available upon request.
