The newly built concrete-and-steel project has 107 condominium homes atop the 112-year-old Seattle Plumbing Supply building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
SEATTLE — Daniels Real Estate has added seven floors to Gridiron Condominiums, located in the 112-year-old Seattle Plumbing Supply building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
A new steel-and-glass curtain wall complements the industrial character of the historic building while providing expansive views and natural light for the homes.
The newly built concrete-and-steel project has 107 condominium homes on 11 stories and 9,700 square feet of retail space on the street level, which has been sold to local entrepreneur David Meinert. Meinert is known for hipster favorites including The Comet, Big Mario’s Pizza, Lost Lake and 5 Point Café.
“As new construction, Gridiron includes residential amenities not often found in downtown Seattle condominium homes,” says sales representative Erik Mehr of Erik Mehr & Associates.
Amenities include and indoor and outdoor rooftop terrace with a gourmet kitchen, wine room and views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains; an additional fifth-floor private terrace; a fitness center; a pet run and grooming area; bike lockers; and optional personal storage.
Gridiron is a few steps away from the sports stadiums and future boulevard connecting pedestrians to the waterfront promenade. In addition, it is located in one of the most transit-diverse neighborhoods on the West Coast, including the state ferry, bus tunnel and Sound Transit rail systems.
“The Gridiron building recently removed its construction crane and man lift and is on track for buyers to move in as soon as mid-December of this year,” Mehr says. “Construction is now focused on finishing the interiors.”
Inside the homes, expansive window walls connect the outdoors with the indoor, 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 and the highest residential standard soundproofing.
“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.
“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.”
