On Sunday we visited the Pb Elemental home at 12th and John.

I forgot my camera but Chris forwarded along even nicer photos.

I really like it but don’t have a million dollars.

Yesterday on my way to hockey in Kent we visited the Georgetown Lofts on Corson Ave (just down the street from Pb’s Corson Lofts.

The units are nice. Though I think the loft designation is a little liberal (one these days I’ll do a “Loft or Not” post.)

Some units boast high ceilings:

The neighborhood is on the rise but is still a little gritty:

And Corson is a little busy. While standing around we saw everything from a blue Ferrari to a few semi-trailers drive by.

    “a little gritty”?!?!

    I love those units, but no way would I live in that area. Not to mention it is so polluted.

    I walk by that Pb house pretty often. It is extremely car-oriented. Does it even have an entrance for people, or was it commissioned, built, and occupied by a Lexus RX Hybrid?

    Wow, how annoying and confusing that they are calling them Georgetown lofts when they and Pbs lofts are in SOUTH PARK. That part of South Park is not that gritty – and the picture? If all the cars actually have wheels on them – not gritty. They are other parts of south park that are gritty, but over there you are near the library, not far from Marra farm and you can walk down Corson to a couple of restaurants. If you could unravel, however, they mystery of buying cheap ass land and putting up expensive ass interesting town homes practically under a freeway overpass on a superfund site, then we can talk gritty.

    my bad, Pb has lofts in South Park that are pretty sweet, but are in the location I described, but I forgot that is not Corson, its the other C street. Apologies. However, I don’t think Geo’town is really that gritty, my comment about the cars with wheels still stands.

    I like pb too. now I want them to literally go outside the box or rectangle, or their usual shape. The house on 12th looks a bit like an inverted (and may I add completely bad-ass looking) metal shipping container, but with a different finish in Mt. Baker flats.

    Is that a ’53 Ford truck in the background of the last pic? Can’t quite make out the grill.

    I like both of those buildings, nice looking.

    the cap hill house has cheap interior finishes, cheap plumbing/electric finishes, badly detailed casework, and no window treatments… for a cool million, they are pocketing $500,000 for themselves. nice business model, though.

    I like the second building that is shown in the pictures. It's a little more pedestrian oriented but does lack garage parking for all units. It looks like the 3rd picture is from within one of those? After a little digging, I learned that it was designed by a firm out of Bellevue called TSA Architects. Still not a huge fan of the area when passing through, but things are turning around slowly…

    Yes, the third photo was taken out of the windows of one of the units down in Georgetown.

    Your blog is very interesting. I would like to tell that I have been looking for such information and finally got it. Thanks a lot.
