Reader wonders about Fremont and the CD
The other day I received an e-mail from a reader that I thought I’d post here for every one to respond to:
I was wondering if you had heard anything about condos being built on stone way and 40th. They tore down the Safeway there awhile back and I had heard that they are going to build a QFC with condos above it. Have you or your readers heard anything?
My husband and I stopped by the Azul Flats preview this weekend and checked out their model home. I thought they did a nice job with the interiors, but my husband pointed out that the dark cherry hardwood floors and dark slab counter tops made the model unit seem dark and cave like, it was on the first floor behind another unit. The units on the south side seemed much brighter, but they are right on busy 39th street and will undoubtedly be loud. They have 30 units available and 3 have sold. prices range from $220k for a 429sf open/1 to $490k for a 1,010sf 2/1.75. www.azulflats.com
Also I was wondering if you or any of your readers have any strong opinions about the central district? Especially the area between 15th-24th and Yesler and Cherry. There are several condos and homes up for sale, but I am unsure of the neighborhood. When we first moved to Seattle, I was told it wasn’t a really great hood, but I’m wondering if that is true now.
