A Loft at Trace
Trace Lofts fans. Here’s an open floor plan loft, #306, on the north-east corner of the building. At 746 square feet, it is a little bigger than the average unit at Trace. Priced at $580k, offers are due Thursday, September 14th.
Trace Lofts at 1408 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill, is a building that is near and dear to my heart as I own unit 201 there (going on ten years, yikes!). It was built in 1919 and has enjoyed a colorful history, housing both an athletic equipment company and an order of Tibetan monks. In 2007 it was converted from a vintage warehouse to condos by developer, GTS development, whose projects include Trace North, the Oddfellows building and Solstice Fremont.
Johnson Architecture + Planning designed the renovation to resemble an antique dresser, with a two-story glass-and-steel addition sitting atop the building like a jewelry box blending the past and present. The design also used exposed brick walls and HVAC systems to integrate the modern and historical elements.
As president of the board there, I can tell you that we’ve worked hard to keep the dues flat this year and are in the middle of planning to re-vamp the rooftop deck. We’re also just wrapping up re-painting the interior of the building and replacing all the water heaters.
