Leasing activity at Martin Selig Real Estate’s new and planned Seattle office developments has been brisk, company leaders said on Friday. This underscores the much-talked-about flight to quality phenomenon and is spurring the company to look at upgrading or even redeveloping older buildings in its 33-building portfolio.

Leases are in play for around 60% of the office space in both the company’s new Federal Reserve Building downtown and 400 Westlake project in South Lake Union, said company founder Martin Selig and his daughter, Executive Vice President Jordan Selig.

Mr. Mott is the principal design director for the Seattle chapter of Perkins & Will architects and was the design principal for a new luxury tower called The Modern.

With stunning views, each residence aims to be a “penthouse” of its own, as each one has tall, floor-to-ceiling windows, and views of Elliot Bay and the Seattle skyline.

For Jordan Selig, the legendary developer’s environmentalist daughter, 400 Westlake is a passion project, but it still had to make economic sense. “We are not building this with bottomless pockets. This is a commercial venture for us,” she said.

They’re the Seligs — Martin and Jordan — and on a rainy August morning, the two are sitting in purple velvet chairs around a black marble conference table in their downtown Seattle office, surrounded by glossy posters of the half-dozen developments they’re planning or already building.

The Seligs are banking on more than green cred to fill their new buildings. They also have a 36-story tower that’ll house WeWork and its co-living offshoot WeLive; a modern remake of a historic Federal Reserve building; an office-and-retail complex close to where the city’s National Hockey League expansion team will play; and a pair of developments on the city’s waterfront, which is getting a $724 million makeover.
