Park Modern – U-District Condo

By on June 18, 2007 in Real Estate, U-District Condos with 5 Comments

Park Modern Ravenna CondoThe Park Modern is a boutique condominium project in the Ravenna area in Northeast Seattle at 5611 University Way NE. Park Modern was conceived to fuse clean modern architecture with a green-built sustainable design.

With only 12 condominium homes, Park Modern features one-bedroom, one+den, two-bedroom and townhome floor plans ranging from 746 to 1,933 square feet. The current available homes range in price from $399,000 to $525,000.

Homes feature:

  • Floor to ceiling windows
  • Bamboo and New Zealand wool carpet flooring
  • Solid maple wood cabinets in kitchen & bath
  • Welded-in stainless kitchen sink
  • Jenn-Air & Bosch stainless steel appliances
  • Cast iron tubs in bath
  • Radiant floor heating
  • Centralized boiler
  • Below grade parking

From Park Modern’s developer, Urban Rowhouse:

Conceived as a clear assembly of structure and transparency enveloped by a metal box, portions of the box have been removed to provide relief, varying light conditions and wood tones for added warmth. Vertical circulation is distinguished from the rest of the building by using structural concrete and galvanized steel. These materials, in conjunction with the corrugated siding are complemented by clear vertical cedar siding, and ipe decking at circulation and pedestrian areas.

The interior design focuses on the relationship of spaces, the assembly of surfaces and textures, and the quality of natural light.

PARK MODERN recognizes sustainability in a multitude of ways, including using materials that have an extraordinarily long life span (e.g., metal siding 50 year minimum life, sarnafil waterproofing , 25 year minimum life). This approach reduces the building’s impact now, and over the life cycle of the building, which is not always the case with traditionally “green” construction. From the sustainably harvested bamboo hardwood flooring; sound-blocking and energy efficient low-E windows and doors; to the Ecospace elevator, PARK MODERN successfully integrates style and sustainability.

    Are all of the floor plans going to have the “home features” as listed in your website?

    Can you send me 1 & 2 bedroom floor plans?

    Thank you

    I moved into Park Modern this month and am even more excited about the purchase prior to move-in. We bought a 1 bedroom with a large deck, great territorial views and an open floor plan. The appliances in the unit are top notch and the builders and architect all live in the building. Pretty good sign in my opinion. Having the builders with their offices in the building has been great and they’ve been very responsive with all the little finishing details that need to be taken care of with new construction. I would have to say that those have been very limited. Beyond that, they are just good people. There are still some units left that I am pretty envious about, but were out of our budget. I would highly recommend checking them out. The neighborhood is great, walking distance to Greenlake, Ravenna Park, U-Village and Whole Foods. We also have a Herkimer Coffee in the building which I’m still determining if it is a blessing or a curse:) Overall, I’m very pleased with our purchase both from aesthetic appeal and sound construction.
