Wait, the artists can live here!

The Seattle PI has an article entitled, 296 square feet — but it’s home, that is about the small units at Moda, that new Belltown development.

Park two of GMC’s biggest Sierra pickups next to each other. That’s a lot of truck, but a small condominium — at least by Seattle standards.

But a local developer is betting Seattle urbanites are primed to carve out their own two-truck chunks of Belltown. The moda condos, set to break ground in October, promise “New York-style living,” with units as small as 296 square feet that start at $149,950.

Wow, look at how small it is:

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    My guess is that if this joint gets built, it will either be finalized as apartments, or it will convert to apartments in short order. Inventory numbers are rising in Seattle, in a big way. But inventory numbers don’t reflect the fact that a lot of new housing coming on the market in the next 12 months. It takes a LONG time to conceive a project, design it, get permits, and do the build. There is a huge amount of in-process building going on right now, all of it about to dump on the market in an already slowing real estate atmosphere.
