Hjarta Condominium – Ballard
To celebrate planting season, the Hjarta Condominium, is giving away annuals to the first 20 people to visit the building on Saturday, May 14th starting at 11:00 AM. And, to accommodate those attending the Ballard Artwalk, Hjarta will remain open until 7:00 PM on Saturday as well.
Hjarta is a green constructed, concrete and steel condominium, I believe the only one in Ballard. Sales are moving along with 5 more home sales in the past 30 days, 18 sales overall all since December. Residents at Hjarta will enjoy the growing season with their own roof-top P-Patch gardens. Hjarta is located at 1530 NW Market Street.
<> Trivia bonus: Do you know where the “P-Patch” got its name? The answer is at the bottom of this post.

P-Patch trivia question answer
The ‘P’ commemorates the family who used to farm the area that became the first community garden in Seattle, the Picardo Farm P-Patch. This P-Patch was acquired from the Picardo family who ran a truck farm in the earlier part of the 1900s up in the Wedgwood neighborhood. When the city started up the P-Patch program in 1973, the ‘P’ was taken to commemorate the family.
