SEATTLE —Gridiron Condominiums offers 107 glass-sheathed residences that are being built above the redesigned brick façade of the iconic Seattle Plumbing building.

Gridiron’s distinctive architecture was part of the appeal for Ryan, a homebuyer. He says he first noticed Gridiron while attending games at CenturyLink Field.

“I’m definitely attracted to the historic façade, combined with the contemporary homes on top — it looks really cool,” he says.

As for the neighborhood, “I like Pioneer Square’s vibe. There’s good nightlife and restaurants. It’s close to the Seattle Art Museum, Olympic Sculpture Park, waterfront and biking trails. Being close to downtown will pay off. Pioneer Square, SODO and the Central District are revitalizing — buying at Gridiron makes sense.”

Sales representative Erik Mehr, of Erik Mehr & Associates, says half of Gridiron’s homes are already sold.

“Pioneer Square is hot — everyone wants a place with character that’s close in,” he says. “In a few days, we’ve signed papers on five homes. Buyers are excited for their October move-in.”

Located within one of the most-connected transit hubs in the area, Gridiron’s neighborhood earns a 96 from the website Walkscore.com and is near I-5 and I-90 freeway access.

Inside Gridiron’s homes, oversize windows deliver water, mountain and city views. “I’m excited about my balcony overlooking the stadium,” says Ryan.

Interiors feature hardwood flooring, slab quartz counters and gas cooktops. Concrete-and-steel construction includes energy efficient heating and cooling, as well as the highest residential-standard soundproofing.

Overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, Gridiron’s rooftop features a firepit and gas grills for meals and conversation. Canine companions will appreciate the secure dog run and dog washing/grooming facility.

Other amenities include concierge services, lounge with gourmet kitchen, wine storage, fitness center, bike parking, storage units, parcel storage and secure garage.
