Lumen “Penthouse” Sells For Asking

That crazy Lumen penthouse that you, our readers, pegged at $675k sold for it’s asking price of $949k last week.

I never would have guessed that!

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    For 2,100 square feet this still seems like a steal?!

    Bet you Bill & Melinda gates foundation bought it for execs coming into town.

    According to excise tax records, it was bought by one of the partners of a local architecture firm. It doesn't look like it was one of this firms projects.

    I guess it's a matter of taste because I'm an architecture buff but Lumen never stood out as anything exceptional to me.
