DESCRIPTION

Just one block away from Pike Place Market, Market Place North was designed by local architect Bruce Lorig.  The building is easily recognized because of it’s slanted design, and western facing homeowners have some of the most desirable million dollar views in the city.  Several homes even offer 2-story floorplans and/or enclosed sun rooms.  The community also offers one of, if not thee most lushly landscaped courtyards in the downtown area.  In addition, the building also provides commercial and retail spaces.  Along with these unique amenities and it’s location to Pike Place Market, Market Place North makes for a wise investment.

DESCRIPTION

Located in the heart of Pioneer Square, Merrill Place is an original loft style community just steps away from shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.  The entrance opens up to a private courtyard with a large water feature and secondary entrance to Il Terrazzo Carmine.  Originally built in 1905, Olson-Walker Architects and NBBJ Group received an Honor Award from AIA in 1985 for redesigning the building.   Homes still feature exposed wood beams, exposed brick walls, and floorplans gracious on square footage.  The community of only 16 units rarely has homes on the market making this address highly desirable.

DESCRIPTION

Built in 1994, the Banner Building consists of commercial and residential spaces.  The building’s most popular homes are the fourteen high-end two-story studio lofts.  The AIA award winning building was built to accommodate artists who work and live from home, and most every home in the building is unique since it was originally built for homeowners to design themselves.  Ed Weinstein of Weinstein Copeland Architects said, “The building is the framework within which artists can work.”  Although old loft buildings have been converted into live-work spaces in Seattle for many years, the Banner Building is the first project designed for this purpose.  With its unconventional program, it is not surprising that the project’s original developer, Koryn Rolstad, is not really a developer at all, but an artist with enough determination to bring the project to life.  Rolstad, who runs an architectural sculpture studio called Bannerworks, wanted to create a community where art and commerce came together and where struggling artists could live with more established ones.

DESCRIPTION

The Alexandria is a 5-story French-inspired building located literally across the street from the Olympic Sculpture Park and 1 block from Myrtle Edwards park. The building was originally an apartment complex and was renovated in the early 90′s to make it ready for conversion. Although the sculpture park promises unobstructed views for many surrounding buildings, there are few units with views at the Alexandria since it’s at level ground with the park. The building does have a charming lobby, outdoor courtyard and rooftop terrace with 180-degree views of the sound. Also, due to it’s secluded location, those who prefer a more quite location should look here.
