17,000 Square Foot Loft in Belltown

Inspired by the New York Times article, How to Land a Loft? Well here’s you chance to buy a cool unfinished loft space. 2225 1st Ave hit the market a few days ago when I was offline:

Rustic live-work marketplace loft. 17,000+ sf of raw spaces ready for your architect. Mullioned windows greet ceilings soaring to 14′. Three levels completed by rooftop terrace level. Potential garage to warehouse a collection of 20+ autos.

I am SOLD. But need help with the $3.7m price tag :). What’s crazier is that this building unit last sold for $1.2m in October 2012. WHY DIDN’T I BUY IT!?

    I always liked the look of this building and if you could find a good tenant for the street level, it would be worth it. Though Belltown currently seems to be a hard place for non-eating/drinking establishments to make a go of it. Egberts (the previous tenant) was a great store and I’m sorry it closed. You could really hear the traffic noise at the back of the store and it will be a few more years before the Viaduct is gone.

    Parking lot/future development alert…don’t count on keeping all of the water side views.

    It isn’t the whole damn building, it’s the ground floor, basement and subbasement. One unit of a two unit condo. The upper floors are the other unit, since 1985 owned by the Apex Belltown Co-op.
