Exposed Brick and Steel at Trace Lofts

One of my neighbors at Trace Lofts has put their unit up for sale. Unlike the other units which have primarily been of the <650 square feet, open one bedroom variety, this is one of the more interesting floor plans that clocks in at 1,028 square feet. It's unit #305. The unit is listed at $449,500 which is less than what they paid back in September 2007 ($494,196).

What makes the #205 and #305 floor plans so sweet is the exposed brick wall with steel. The light fixture they installed is also very nice (we need a light fixture for our dining table still…):

The possible downer with this floor plan is the lack of windows. But what few windows there are, the west facing ones fortunately capture the Space Needle, and the windows open onto two small decks:

There’s been two re-sales at Trace. One at $490/sq. ft. in January and one $438/sq. ft. last week making this unit looking priced to sell at $438/sq. ft.

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.

    It was in this very blog that I read that the only way to get any sleep at TRACE is to use a “white noise” generator, yeah $449 is a GREAT deal huh?

    To get sleep at any Pike/Pine corridor condo or apartment is going to require a white noise generator! :)

    Though this is an interior unit, doesn't really face directly onto the street (unlike our corner unit facing down on a 5-way intersection), so it's much quieter than our place.

    As Matt's neighbor, I sleep at Trace every night without a white noise machine. :)

    Hey Matt, thanks for the effort with this listing…I'll have it open tomorrow on the Broker's Tour, 11 to 1…but anyone's welcome to stop in! As you know, it's such a cool unit…anyone who's hot for loft living should see it!
