Smith Tower Condos: Update

Smith Tower CondosArchitects NBBJ, and Smith Tower’s new owner Walton Street Capital, have asked the Pioneer Square Preservation Board to approve plans to convert only the top 12 floors of the tower into residential condos. Floors 2 through 21 would remain office space. The original “buzz” was to convert the entire 38 stories into 150 condos. Plans are now being reported to provide a single unit on each floor – only 12 homes.

Wow!

As Seattle’s most loved skyscraper and with homes having their own private entrance from the only human operated antique elevator in Seattle, these homes are expected to have a historically high price tag and should sell quickly.

DESCRIPTION

The Newmark Tower is one of the closest residential locations to Pike Place Market, which is also only two blocks away from downtown’s retail core. Originally J.C. Penny’s and the world’s largest department store, the building was torn down in 1989. The property was then purchased by Intrawest and architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill built the 24-story apartment tower with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.. The tower was later converted to office and residential spaces for sale in 1993 by HAL Real Estate Investments, Intracorp and Callison Architecture. The 90,000 square feet of office space is currently leased to the building’s neighbor, WAMU. Homes are comprised of studios, 1-bedrooms and 2-bedrooms. Floorplans range from 550 to 1,100 square feet and amenities include a 24-hour concierge, indoor pool and outdoor terrace. Some units have decks that connect the living room to the bedroom. Many homes also offer city and/or sound views, although many views have been obstructed by the new Four Seasons to the west and Fifteen Twenty-One tower to the north.
