Condo Review – Enso Condominiums in South Lake Union

Enso Condominiums in South Lake Union
820 Blanchard Street


Enso Condominiums was built by Vulcan and designed by Callison Architects and was one of the first anchor condo buildings in the Denny and Westlake corridor that helped kick off all things in this part of South Lake Union and the Denny Triangle. Enso was also one of  Seattle’s first LEED certified condo buildings. It’s unique characteristics are that is sits on an angled axis on its lot and the eastern side has a unique curved curtain wall glass exterior, which allows for unique view corridors up and down Denny and Westlake Avenues. At the time, it was considered the higher-end of the 3 Vulcan built condominium buildings due to it’s luxury finishes (Veer Lofts and 2200 Condominiums being the other two).
