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:

    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.
