More Condos Coming to First Hill?
The DJC has an article about more condos potentially coming to First Hill at 800 Columbia Street, Daniels buying First Hill site for future high rise:
Daniels Real Estate is buying a First Hill development site where a 30-story residential tower is planned.
Kevin Daniels said his firm is under contract to purchase the site at 800 Columbia St. from the current owner, Swedish pension fund Alecta. Daniels is planning a 284-unit project that will be the same size and massing as a project Alecta proposed in 2012 with similar materials and outdoor space. Daniels said his project will have a simplified design, larger units and changes to the roof.
Daniels said the building is being designed with condos in mind, but the firm has not made a final decision on that. A simplified design that is easier to build would help with potential liability issues down the road if Daniels decided to go with condos, he said.
Daniels Real Estate is currently working on Gridiron, a 107-unit condo building in Pioneer Square.
