The February edition of the Puget Sound Business Journal includes a cover story by Editor Rob Smith, entitled “The City That Almost Never Sleeps” that taps Dean Jones, President and CEO of RSIR, as a market expert who has been living, developing and selling amidst downtown Seattle since the mid-1990’s. A pull quote from the article references Jones as saying: “There are truly world-class projects being invested in downtown Seattle.” 

Jones offers his perspective as an outsider, having grown up in Vancouver, BC and also having spent a few years in San Francisco. He moved to dowtown Seattle in 1994 where he and his father redeveloped brownstone apartment buildings on Capitol Hill and renovated and sold the 200-unit Elektra Condominiums (formerly the Townhouse Apartments). The team later built the Concord Condominiums in Belltown, which were delivered in 2000 and won national honors as Attached Community of the Year by the National Association of Homebuilders.
