Art Stable is a 7 unit condo in South Lake Union and has only two units left:

#600 – 2,237 sf – $1.565m
#400 – 4,000 sf – $2.2m

We stopped by today for a tour and loved it – the west and east elevations are a wall of windows with neat openings to hoist up art, the north wall can be punched out for custom window configurations, nice westerly views, rusted metal exterior, unfinished shell ready to be customized to your heart’s content!

The units are being sold as unfinished shells:

  • Units sold unfinished
  • Most feature two art windows each (with a crane on the roof so you can hoist up your large art pieces and swing them in)

  • Two parking spots/unit. Entrance is off the alley preserving the front of the building.
  • No storage, but most units are 4,000 square feet
  • First four buyers are working artists or collectors
  • Worried about west views? The low-rise building to the west, just had their tenant Bright Horizons, sign a 15 year lease.
  • Want more windows on the north side? They bought the air rights in between them and the building to the north. The north wall of the building is designed to have windows punched out.
  • 10′ to 11′ ceiling height
  • 13′ front door
  • HOA dues are $0.26/square foot

Big thanks to Chris of Point32 for meeting us on a Saturday afternoon to give us a peak.

About Matt

Matt , Urbnlivn's publisher, has a love for lofts with industrial features and new construction condos that is only eclipsed by his passion for outdoor sports and urban living. Phrases such as “polished concrete” and “exposed brick” are music to his ears. You can also find Matt on Twitter or skiing.

    Nice place, but are you *sure* about that view? Didn’t you see the massive sign in the parking lot for the four story Yale Campus buildings going in right across the street? Without the view, it’s just a large condo wedged between an office and I-5.

    A Seattle property developer will remake two blocks in the South Lake Union neighborhood into an office, biotech and retail campus with four new office buildings and thousands of square feet of retail space.

    Blume bought one of the blocks — bounded by Yale and Pontius avenues north and Mercer and Republican streets — in May for $22 million. The site is filled by several unoccupied buildings and parking lots, he said. They will be replaced by three, four-story office buildings, with retail on the ground floor.

    Thanks for the nice article Matt.
    Hugh, those banners are from a now cancelled project that would have been very similar to Alley24, designed by NBBJ, and featuring ground floor retail, an entry courtyard and pedestrian alley. Instead, the owners restored the former Kenworth assembly plant as the new Bright Horizons School which Matt described.

    The Blume project is hardly cancelled – its still on their website and plans are still on file at DPD. They didn’t sell the property or build on it, because SLU is the hottest market for office space right now. Amazon is already looking for more space.

    Give the economy a couple of years and you’ll see those parking lots and school vanish in a heartbeat.

    Design review for a seven story project across the road just got posted – say goodbye to view. :(
