Smith Tower one step closer to condos
Yes, I’m behind on posting. Fortunately now that I’m on vacation time to just veg out and surf the web.
From the Seattle PI last week, Smith Tower condo plan wins a unanimous vote:
The historic Smith Tower took a major step Wednesday toward becoming condominiums.
In a unanimous vote, Seattle’s Pioneer Square Preservation Board approved a proposal by Walton Street Capitol, a Chicago-based real estate investment company, to build 150 units in Seattle’s first skyscraper.
Further down the article notes that “the project also needs the approval of the city’s Landmark Preservation Board”.
I really like Pioneer Square but it’s pretty sketchy at night. Hopefully some higher end housing attracts more businesses to the area to cater to its residents.
