Cristalla: Happy Ending, New Beginning

 rsz_cristalla_roof

rsz_1cristalla1After two years of litigation, we are pleased to report news that Cristalla’s Homeowners Association Board has reached an agreement with its developer to settle all outstanding building litigation claims, with a court dismissal of the lawsuit expected within the next thirty days.  Terms of the settlement are confidential and will be disclosed to homeowners in more detail at a private meeting in early July. 

Cristalla’s architect is working to finalize detailed plans to start repairs to the roof (Sky Terrace and external ledge, or its “eyebrow”), additional remediation treatments to the South Wall at parking levels to reduce the chance of further water intrusion (check out our coverage on last fall’s repairs here), plus a complete rebuild of its 6th floor Steam Room. Within the next few weeks, Cristalla’s Board intends to select a general contractor to complete the work. 

One of Seattle’s most beloved high-rise condominiums, the Cristalla took its inspiration from the Crystal Pool, an Italian Renaissance structure built on the site in 1914.  Architect B. Marcus Priteca planned a high-relief, neo-classical façade of glazed terra cotta with domed corner entries.  Arched steel trusses supported a glass roof, which covered a huge pool with salt water piped in from Elliott Bay.  At the time, it was one of the most popular recreation spots in Seattle.  Priteca later designed a building which has lasted a little longer… West Seattle’s Admiral Theater.

Today, the base of Cristalla hearkens back to those times.  And, in addition to the lobby’s elegant staircase and two-story water feature, Traver Gallery and artist Anna Skibska provided artistic decor throughout. Interior designer Mandy Reed continued the theme of the building’s history by maintaining a prevalence of water through the use of translucent panels on Cristalla’s doors, and glass panels on its upper kitchen cabinets.  All homes feature hardwood flooring plus carpeted bedrooms. Studios, 1-bedrooms, 2-bedrooms and penthouses range from 420 to 2,800 square feet.

You’ll never lose your western view at Cristalla, either.  Developers bought the air rights above the neighboring property, capping any future growth to eight stories.

The Cristalla enjoys a Walk Score® of 97 and a Transit Score™ of a perfect 100. As you can see by this link, its location is amazing. You’re steps away from the best of Belltown in any direction.  The Cristalla is pet-friendly too.  There’s even a dog run on the rooftop!  Lots of other amenities as well, ranging from a 24-hour concierge to a rooftop BBQ area.  Check out our Cristalla website for more details.  Our website also has a Listings tab on available properties.

Getting a loan at the Cristalla during ongoing litigation was often a challenging task.  With litigation now resolved, obtaining a loan will be much easier.  There is a lot to love about the Cristalla.  We invite you to learn more about this special place, and even arrange for a  private tour.  Just give us a call at 206~910~5000, or send an email to urgent@stroupe.com.

Cristalla’s Green Wall is Changing Color (while staying Green)

September 2, 2010 by  
Filed under Cristalla

As you walk past the south end of the Cristalla, you can’t help but notice a big green wall with soft brown panels creeping up from below.  These are the final steps in constructing a permanent south wall for the building, now underway through CDK Construction Services.

2015 and cristalla

At the time the Cristalla was finished, the south wall was sheltered by an adjoining building set to become the 2015 Second Avenue project. That building was razed during the downtown condo boom, with construction permits filed and things going nicely in 2008 (it was even scheduled to open in 2010). However, like most projects later that year, the recession hit and everything stopped. This left the Cristalla with a now- exposed south wall.  Resulting weather damage finally caused management to repair damages and work on a permanent fix. Now that the south wall will be permanently protected, the Cristalla will no longer have to worry about major maintenance problems or structural concerns—which will also bring a sigh of relief to potential buyers and their lenders.

The green part of the wall is a rain screen manufactured by Knight Wall Systems. Rain screens are exterior infrastructures which sit away from an outside wall’s weather-resistant barrier.  They create a cavity allowing moisture to pass through and away from the building. The resulting airflow between the rain screen and the wall accelerates residual moisture evaporation. There’s also room for additional insulation, which increases energy efficiency and adds LEED credits to the building.

Another LEED feature is the brown part of the wall. North Clad® composite panels have a recycled content of approximately 30%+ pre and post-consumer recycled content. These lightweight panels reflect energy from the sun, reduce heat absorption and are graffiti-resistant. Aesthetically, it’s beautiful material, creating an illusion of a fabric-covered wall. Noel Foster, CDK project manager, added that they’re very pleased with the results.

The Cristalla South Wall project is well ahead of schedule and should be completed in September. The 2015 Second Avenue project is still in play, but no resumption date has been announced.

Cristalla Assessment Simply Based on Neighboring Construction Hold-Up

May 27, 2010 by  
Filed under 2015 Second, Cristalla

The Cristalla has assessed its homeowners for water intrusion based on some open space that had become exposed to exterior elements. The empty lot had previously been going through a permitting process during downtown condo boom just a couple years ago, but was put on hold like most other proposed buildings. The residential high-rise named 2015 Second is designed to be physically attached to the base of the Cristalla building, and based on those plans the exterior of the south side of the address had no plans of delay at the time.

2015 and cristalla

While homeowners seemed to have known in advance of the assessment, it has caused some challenges with lenders getting buyers approved while maintenance is under way. In the meantime, the building is doing their best to take the necessary precautions and things are expected to be settled with no outrageous concern from homebuyers or residents.

About


fischer-aboutVintage condo collector? Good luck adding one of these to your collection considering the rarity of availability. Located mid-block on the west side of Third Avenue between Pike and Pine Streets, this unique eight-story building was constructed in two phases; the first three floors were built in 1912 and the remaining stories were added in 1915. As completed it provided two retail spaces at the storefront level, 64 small studio and one-bedroom apartments on five floor levels and the upper two floor levels were taken up by an auditorium performance space. In 1974 the building interior was remodeled and converted to create condominium units. It now has a three-part vertical block façade composition and noteworthy Venetian-inspired architectural character. The reinforced concrete structure includes a foundation and basement and is entirely clad with ivory-color glazed terra cotta. The retail storefront level has been entirely remodeled.

Stroupe Group Exclusive Websites for Buildings

We wanted to take a moment to share a beneficial service we provide for both buyers and sellers looking at downtown Seattle real estate.  Over the last couple of years, we have built a collection of websites for buildings downtown, and have many more in the hopper.  Our intention with these websites is to allow each unique address to convey its own personality online.

Every site we build for a condo building allows a visitor to:

  • View active units for sale,
  • View the past three years of sold history,
  • Sign up for instant email notifications of new listings,
  • Inquire about a particular unit’s value,
  • See a neighborhood map and WalkScore,
  • Look at a photo gallery of amenities, and
  • Get building management/concierge contact information.

In addition, whenever we have a seller that lists with the Stroupe Group, we integrate a customized page with professional photography.  All of our building websites also place at the top of all major search engines for maximum exposure, and we also use linking strategies to further secure placement.

Visit our current project: EscalaTower.com

Below is a list of other websites that are constantly being improved, and we would love to hear any suggestions on how we can make them better.
