The Insignia Towers, also known as 2301 6th Avenue and formerly as the Embassy Development Project, are a pair of 41-story residential skyscrapers in the Denny Regrade neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.[2][3] The buildings are mainly residential condominiums with lower-level shops.[3] The project was originally approved in 2007, but was placed on hold during the late-2000s recession; it was revived in 2012 and began construction that year. The North Tower was completed in 2015, and the South Tower was completed in 2016.[4] The two towers have 707 residential units and 1,000 parking spaces.

History[edit]

In 2007 Embassy Development bought the property and gained approval to build two 440 foot condo towers on it.[4] The project was originally expected to be finished in 2011.[5] However, the project was cancelled following the 2008 economic crisis.[6][7] The property was transferred to Bosa Development, which, as of 2015, aims to construct the southern tower by 2015 and the northern tower by the end of 2016.[4]
