Opportunity to Build a 8,000sf Pioneer Square Loft

Have you always wanted to have a top Seattle developer to build you a 8,000 square foot penthouse atop a vintage Pioneer Square building? Yes? Now is your chance with, 316 2nd Ave S. Listed at $1.9m, William Justen, who developed 1521, will build it for you. From the listing agent in an email to us:

This price would include a pretty fantastic custom design and construction management by William Justen, who did Fifteen Twenty One. It’s probably one of the most interesting opportunities in the city for a large format home downtown. While it wouldn’t have the amenities of a typical condo tower, with a 6, 000 square foot floorplate to work with you could add your own gym, pool, rooftop tennis court, garden, etc.

He also mentioned that the building has been retrofitted and could likely support 2-4 additional floors on top.

The only catch is you need to buy the whole building. Fortunately it, The Moses building, is for sale for $6.9m and is being sold by the eccentric Ben Exworthy, who once graced the cover of the Stranger. The building comes not just with a launching pad from which to build your penthouse atop, but also some prime office space occupied by HTC and the restaurant Tinello. You can see more photos of the office space at chadbourne+doss‘s site.



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.
