Stadium Lofts Presale Date and Pricing

July 14, 2008 by  
Filed under Stadium Lofts

The long anticipated Stadium Lofts, across from Qwest Field on Occidental Avenue, is planning on making presales available sometime during the first quarter of 2009. Although many proposed projects have been delayed due to financing constraints, Stadium Lofts should have no problems considering it’s a renovation of an existing historical structure.

Recent changes to the design of Stadium Lofts were made to meet city standards which require an obvious distinction of what part of the building is new, and what is old. Apparently, the previous design didn’t make the cut.

New Design

With the location, and desirability of lofts, prices seem to be a steal with ground floor studios starting in the low to mid $300′s, ground floor 1 bedrooms in the low to mid $400′s, and rooftop deck units in the $700k and $800k range. The majority of the new lofts will range from mid $400′s to mid $600′s.

Examples and Characteristics of Lofts in Seattle

Most all dictionaries define a loft as a storage area or attic. This can cause some confusion, so I scoured the Internet to find out everything I could to provide the true definition of a “livable loft.” In real estate terms, all lofts feature ceilings 10′ or higher, and with very few exceptions, large windows measuring 6′ or higher. Lofts can also be classified into three styles; New York Lofts, Industrial Lofts, and Modern Lofts.

Examples of Lofts

New York – Also referred to as the “true” loft, the most common trait among this style is the lofted bedroom. This design also has very high ceilings of 15′ or higher, and traditionally excludes interior walls. New York style lofts typically sell at a premium compared to others because the 2nd story is commonly more desirable.

Industrial – This style of loft may or may not include a 2nd story, but strictly refers to industrial or commercial structures that have been converted (usually by the addition of full baths and kitchens). It’s also very common for this style to include exposed brick walls and/or ductwork.

Modern – This style falls into the definition of a loft because of ceiling and window height. However, it’s common for this style of loft to have interior walls separating rooms. This type of design has also become a popular trend in new construction and will typically have a less industrial feel.

Characteristics of Lofts

In addition to various styles, lofts have various characteristics that make them even more unique. When beginning your search, the more you know about what you’re looking for, the less time you’ll have to spend searching. Here is a guide to help you add to, or cross off, characteristics on your loft wish list.
