A RECENT ARTICLE PUBLISHED BY THE SEATTLE TIMES DESCRIBES THAT “REPRESENTATIVES AT NEXUS SAY THEY ARE ENGINEERING A ‘SMART CONNECTED BUILDING’ AND IN THE PROCESS ADDING A NEW DIMENSION TO URBAN LIVING.”
The commencement of construction on the NEXUS condominium tower in downtown Seattle quickly approaches, and executives of Burrard Group and Sirqul announced a new alignment that will redefine what it means to “live in the cloud.”
As Christian Chan of Burrard Group told the Times, “Seattle is ready for NEXUS. It’s about time that a city recognized globally for innovation, technology and cloud computing met a residential community that could keep pace.”
Robert Frederick, President & CEO of Sirqul, “will chair a committee of engineering and lifestyle experts to explore and deliver the high-tech platform at NEXUS” and as he says, “smart spaces within residential communities will eventually be as expected as indoor plumbing, but it takes thought leaders like the Burrard Group to change the paradigm. Together we aim to deliver a future-proof environment that will greatly enhance the lifestyle offering of NEXUS while improving the overall efficiency of its operation.”
Current reservation holders, prospective homebuyers, real estate brokers and service providers will soon be able to see cutting edge technological developments in action at the forthcoming NEXUS Living Lab, which will open at the NEXUS Sales Center later this fall.
The article further outlines that “in addition to the building’s tech touches, NEXUS will also feature innovative floor plans and robust amenities,” according to Dean Jones, President & CEO of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “NEXUS is a game changer on many levels, and a sense of excitement and community has already begun to develop amongst our buyers,” said Jones. “We haven’t even broken ground yet; imagine what a few years of programming will do.”
Finally, the Times touches on the 41st floor Sky Club, an alternative to the typical top-floor penthouse approach to condominium towers. Inspired by the Cloud Room that once sat atop the Camlin Hotel in Seattle, Christian Chan says “the Cloud Room is reinterpreted in 2019 high atop NEXUS, but this time the cosmopolitan lifestyle is available to own and will provide a lifetime of opportunities enhanced by technology.”
“Looking back, who would have guessed that living in the cloud would take on so much meaning,” added Chan.
