Gallery Residents Moving In

The Gallery folks let everyone know that people are moving in to the first five floors and that:

The remaining retail space has been sold to a small grocer and will be called The Belltown Café-Market. The market will provide deli items, including ready-to-eat meals, groceries, wine and assorted last-minute items.

Anyone here move in yet?

Bonus link: Thornton Place sent over some photos from their recent event (250 people attended.) It’s that mega-plex up by Northgate.

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.

    I recently learned that in the current credit crunch, select buyers at Brix and Gallery have been unable to secure financing for their units. While some have simply forfeited their earnest money, others have been able to get 50% back or in some cases all of their earnest money back.

    While it is rare that I compliment a developer, I will take this moment to say that I applaud Schnitzer Northwest for working with people who have been unable to get financing for their homes. It is the ethically correct thing to do.

    I do wonder, though, what is happening to homebuyers who have the same issue at other projects in the city.

    We are wondering the same thing. Please share your experiences in obtaining financing in this volatile credit crunch.

    Foster,

    Where did you hear that buyers are getting out while retaining earnest money? I have heard the exact opposite for the buyers who are getting hosed at Gallery. No one can even get loans unless the building is 50% sold, which Galley has not yet currently done. They are still at 48% sold.

    I have read about several people that UNsuccessfuly tried to get earnest money back at olive8. I think this topic deserves its own post, and would be very helpful for the hundreds of presale buyers that are anxious right now.
