If you attended the Pike/Pine Tour last weekend, you likely saw one great example of new construction harnessing the power of history. We’re talking about Pike Motorworks, one of the newly completed apartment buildings in Capitol Hill.
Pike Motorworks takes its name from its location at 714 Pike Street, which used to be the location of Auto Row in 1926. The building alludes to these origins by including industrial elements in their design (even the courtyard sculpture is made of car rims) in hopes to allow residents to enjoy both modern amenities and history.
The building is right in the hub of Captiol Hill – close to restaurants, bars and retail. It also offers several desirable amenities of its own, including pet decks and wash stations, a retail courtyard, lounge area, business and fitness centers (including a yoga studio), plus a sunroof deck. Needless to say, it sounds like urban living at it’s finest. We’re most envious of their on-site Redhook Brewpub, but back to the building…
The units range from studios and lofts to two bedrooms and you can view all floorplans on their website. Every residence appears to have great attention to detail with sleek finishings and hardware. Vaulted ceilings, natural lights, gourmet kitchens, stunning tile and premium fixtures – these are all just a few of the descriptions on their current website. And we’ve heard they even have wood doors made of reclaimed timber from the original building – very cool.
Prices range from $1,739 – $7,464/month, so there may be the perfect unit for you if you’re interested!
