SEATTLE —Gridiron Condominiums offers 107 glass-sheathed residences that are being built above the redesigned brick façade of the iconic Seattle Plumbing building, one of the city’s most photographed historic buildings.

“Although 60 percent of the building is already sold, 42 homes are still available on almost all floors and in a variety of studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans and views,” says sales representative Erik Mehr of Erik Mehr & Associates. “And with 20 floor plans, the homes are as unique as the building itself.

“The Gridiron building recently topped out and is on track for buyers to move in as soon as this November. Construction is now focused on finishing the interiors.”

Inside the homes, expansive window walls connect the outdoors with the indoors, delivering Elliott Bay, Olympic Mountain and city views. Interiors feature high-end finishes, hard-surface flooring throughout, slab quartz counters and gas cooktops.

“We encourage people to stop by the sales center to visit the build-out of the kitchen — being able to see, touch and experience the quality is helpful to potential buyers,” says Mehr. “The building’s concrete-and-steel construction includes energy-efficient heating and cooling systems.”

Located across from CenturyLink Field, Gridiron will place residents in the heart of one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods. Residents enjoy quick connections to Link Light Rail north to the University District and south to the airport, with further expansions in the works; bus routes in all directions; streetcar service to Capitol Hill; and freeway access to Interstates 5 and 90.

“Gridiron has phenomenal access,” says Mehr. “It’s easy to navigate the whole city from here, as well as commute to the Eastside. It not only lies within Seattle’s professional sports center, it’s a neighborhood active with nightlife, restaurants, new retail and the energy of cutting-edge, creative companies. In fact, Gridiron is located in one of the most connected transit hubs on the West Coast and has a 97 walk score [from the website Walkscore.com].”

The neighborhood is also convenient to Pike Place Market and the waterfront.

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.

“Interest rates are lower than they’ve been in a year, and there’s talk of them starting to inch up,” says Mehr. “Buyers can take advantage of our preferred lenders, HomeStreet Bank and Caliber Home Loans, lock-in their interest rate and hold the rate until closing. Why pay $3,000 rent when you can buy? With rents skyrocketing, it adds financial peace-of-mind to know what your monthly mortgage payment will be years from now.”
