Hillku Spell Checks Vertigo

I love this photo on Hillku making fun of the condo conversion known as Seattle’s ugliest condo (yes, it has since been repainted several times, getting slightly better with each new paint scheme):

Another less obvious problem with the sign is the two phone numbers. Which should I call?

Any bets on how long before MCM/James Garner replace the sign?

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.

    That’s great! I lived a few blocks from there when they did the redesign from normal semi-ugly apartment building to fantastically ugly and overhyped condo project. I hope more bad karma is heading their way for the aesthetic injustice they did to Capitol Hill.

    I don’t think Vertigo even comes close to being the ugliest condo on Cap Hill. A lot of those 1990s and late 80s cheapies are far, far worse. I’d take a unit in the Vertigo over one of those any day.
