Newly announced billionaire and local real estate mogul, Martin Selig fled Nazi Germany in 1939. Once they reached the United States, the Selig family came to call the Pacific Northwest their new home, moving into their second Seattle residence at 803 32nd Ave S in 1946.
In September of 2014, LimeLite Development was able to purchase this home and begin renovations. After further research, we discovered the importance of what we had on our hands!
Recently, Selig’s family home was resold for $1.285 million. Ideally perched high above a fabulous street, the grand front porch leads to open-concept living featuring tall ceilings, banks of windows, and designer finishes. Items to note include: a chef’s kitchen, breakfast nook, exquisite 5-piece master bath, and green features throughout. With stunning views of Lake WA, the Cascades, and the Bellevue skyline, this home embodies the finest in Seattle living.
Now at age 78, Selig’s company has been a prominent player in the Seattle real estate industry for nearly six decades. Amongst the 4 million square feet of office space Martin Selig Real Estate owns, Selig also built and owned the Columbia Center, which was once Seattle’s tallest building in 1985.
Selig is now developing 1.5 million square feet of real estate, including a half-acre on Amazon’s corporate campus. His most ambitious new project is a 29-story, glass office tower with a rounded edge rising from the six-story building that once housed a branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. This project will offer 533,000 square feet of new office space.

We are honored and delighted to have been able to meet and restore the home of one of our idols!
