Loft With Potential At 19 Ave Lofts

1812 19th Ave 107_00

The word loft is used in real estate to describe a myriad of floor layouts, but only one meets my expectations.  This week  I’m going to continue the theme of Capitol Hill area condos, that really have a loft above.  Last week was unit 201 at The Opal, which is nice but very pricey.   Next… Read More

Tom Kundig Condo on Pike

1111 Pike Main

The exterior design reflects the modular interior at 1111 E.
