Classic 1904 Pioneer Square loft has little modern touches

By March 10, 2020

Lofts, Pioneer Square, The Lofts

210 3rd Ave S Unit 4A is a Pioneer Square classic: An evolving residence in a former warehouse. This unit is on the top floor of The Lofts, built in 1904 as part of a neighborhood economic boom. It was originally built for tanner H.F. Norton (you can see it in the old days here), and spent time as a paper warehouse and a wholesale drug company before its residential transformation. (We have a special attachment to this building—we helped sell its neighbor 4C back in 2018.)

In this unit, modern apartment elements are built up inside the historic shell—including a white-walled sleeping nook that doesn’t quite touch the historic ceiling beams and a large open kitchen that preserves the airy feel. There’s a little more privacy in a master bedroom nd bath in a back corner. A white pillar fireplace toward the window bank adds another modern touch.

Like many of the city’s older lofts, the place is a kind of canvas—there’s more than 1,800 square feet to work with here, most of it open. The previous owner even threw a swing in there.
