Seattle Heights: What Could be Coming to Your Backyard

rsz_2625_prelim_designSEATTLE HEIGHTS RESIDENTS, TAKE NOTE!  We came across a news item about the 2625 Third Avenue project which should be of great interest to you. 

Originally, the current site of the American Lung Association was slated to make way for a 18-story building with 204 residential units above 4,000 sq ft of retail space.  Now, however, the developers are petitioning to increase the height to 26 stories, with 310 residential units instead.  Retail size would stay the same, with parking for 160 vehicles in five below-grade levels.

To the left is the Preliminary Design, and we have also attached the current zone map and zoning context maps at the bottom of this article.

If you would like to make your voice heard on the changes in this project, especially those Seattle Heights residents whose views may be impacted, you can attend a Seattle design review board meeting on Tuesday, February 22nd at Seattle City Hall, 601 Fifth Ave, Room L-280 at 5:30 p.m.  

Check out the February 22nd section of this meeting link for more information. Click on the Design Proposal area to download the 33-page presentation to be made on Tuesday evening.  The contact for this project is Sean Sullivan at (206) 624-8154, and the planner is Michael Dorcy at (206) 615-1393.

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.

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.

Before the LEED certification was a common expectation, Seattle Heights was one of the first to use it’s energy efficiency as a way to attract buyers and earned an award for Energy Smart Design by Seattle City Light. At the time, Seattle Heights’ Integrated Comfort system for air conditioning, heating and ventilation was state-of-the-art for having an energy efficient system which was reported as 23% more energy efficient than local building codes required. Today, the 25-story tower has been improved even further with exterior sound and storm proofing as well as a redesigned grand lobby which makes homeowners raving fans of their building. This building also features amenities such as an indoor pool, fitness room, hot-tub, sauna and more. companies involved include Callison Architecture, Cosmos Development and Fujitec.
