Found out about two new conversions today.

McKean in Queen Anne

Aprea View on Capitol Hill

A number of units for Aprea View Condominiums at 601 14th Ave E (note Redfin has mis-mapped this building, it is really at 14th and Mercer) appeared on the market today. Average $/sq ft is $386 making them relatively cheap.

Sounds like this developer flipper is lazy and not putting the same effort that the developer of McKean is investing:

Real Estate 101: location, location, location. This condo is a blank slate waiting for your creative remodel ideas- you can always change cabinets ( & have fun doing it) but you can’t change your location or your views & this is a great Capitol Hill location…

Update: Corrected location. It really is on Capitol Hill :).

    Actually, the map results are inaccurate–that’s at 14th and Mercer. I only know because I live near that building–and to judge by the lack of “construction activity” you’re right about how little effort has been but into this building since they bought it a year or so ago.

    Thanks Ellen and andyf. I checked on Google Maps and Microsoft’s Maps Live and they agree with you. We’ll get their location corrected on Redfin today.

    I don’t understand why conversions are still happening. There is already a glut of condos, new and old. Can these people simply not read any financial or housing news?!?!
