Update: On March 4th, the developer changed the format of the auction, cancelling the public auction that was scheduled for March 5th at the Grand Hyatt. Instead, the Gallery condo units slated for auction will be sold through a “Buy Now” event, open to those who previously registered for the auction. At the Buy Now event, which is being held at the Gallery Condo building, the sales staff will meet with buyers individually on a first-come, first served basis.
Schnitzer will auction 25 additional open one-bedroom units at their Gallery Condominium building in Belltown on March 5, 2011 at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Seattle. This auction follows a similar format as Schnitzer’s previous auction of 43 Gallery Condo units back in September 2009.
