Via6 40% Leased

via6-550

With their marketing campaign just getting started Via6 has already leased a whooping 40% of their 654 units according to the PSBJ, More than 40% of apartments already leased at big new Via6 project in downtown Seattle. And those renters are paying upwards of $3/square foot.

Two years ago, when construction of the $200 million project was starting, there were questions about whether the market could support such a big project. At the time, the developer said rents for a 700-square-foot unit would be around $1,900 a month. It turns out rents are higher.

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.

    They got really lucky with Via6 –right across the street from the three blocks Amazon is redeveloping. They’ll have a great source of well-paid renters for a long time. I checked out the building a couple of days ago as Velo, one of the only bike shops on Capitol Hill, moved down there. The building seems nice enough, and it’s far less generic than other recent area high-rises like Alto. Interiors are typical $3/sqft fare, nothing super special. Rents get a little crazy the higher you go in the building, but maybe it’ll seem worth it once the huge Tom Douglas thing at ground level is completed.

    As a current tenant of the Via6 & Scavenger hunt participant, I am happy to hear that Via6 is well on its way to half rented!
