Schnitzer Unloads Equinox for $65 million

While I was downhill mountain biking at Whistler last week the Times reported that Schnitzer [sold] two big properties for more than $300M. One of them being failed condo project Equinox which converted to apartments just a year ago:

Schnitzer got another $65 million for Equinox, a recently completed 204-unit apartment building in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood.

The sales were the second- and third-largest in King County so far this year, according to county records.

Update: Schnitzer is also looking to close out Brix. They’re down to the last five units and have cut prices today and are offering a buyer bonus of 3% if you are under contract by 8/31 and close by 9/30.

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, 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.
