Aspira is a 400-foot-tall (122 m) skyscraper in the Denny Triangle neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. It has 37 floors, and mostly consists of apartments, of which there are 325 units. Construction began in 2007 and was completed in late 2009. The building is located on Stewart Street at Terry Avenue.

History[edit]

Urban Partners first proposed a 37-story residential and retail tower on the parking lot of the Gethsemane Lutheran Church, located on the southwest side of Stewart Street and Terry Avenue,[4] in July 2006.[5]

Construction on the tower began in 2007. The project was completed in late 2009 and opened to tenants in March 2010.[6]

In November 2012, the tower was sold to TIAA-CREF for $165.7 million, setting a new regional record with a per-unit price of $509,760.[7]
