$500k Loft at Trace on Capitol Hill
Affordable loft fans – check out #311 at Trace Lofts, the second unit of the year there to hit the market. This one, on the third floor faces south and features original brick walls and a wood clad ceiling.
Priced at $500k, it is 600 square feet. They’re looking at offers on Tuesday the 13th.
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 eleven 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 reasonable and are in the middle of planning to re-vamp the rooftop deck.
