Pb Elemental Townhome

A million and a half for a townhome!?

2008 8th Ave N is a Pb Elemental townhome on Westlake.

It has nice views:

And I love the outdoor kitchen:

But the owner’s taste in floor coverings certainly needs to be questioned:

Last sale: October 27, 2006 for a million. Will they get $500,000 more two years later in a declining market?

Bonus link: People Who Live in Glass Houses. A 23 year old grad student in Manhattan complains that the floor to ceiling windows in her $1.5 mil condo are ruining her $20,000 couch. Solution? $12,000 motorized blinds.

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.

    What the heck is a 23 year old doing in a condo worth that much?

    Love it. One day, Pb Elemental is going to build me a home… just need to find the perfect urban location. (Or find $2 million dollars to live in the Trophy Building)

    Pb Elemental needs to get over to the Midwest and teach those people a thing or two about cool architecture.

    They’ve got it down.
