Brix Condos – Update


This past summer I wrote about the Brix Condos on Capitol Hill. Brix is the Hill’s newest development located at the old Safeway lot on Broadway.

Brix homes feature:

  • High ceilings (flats up to 9′, lofts up to 15’6″)
  • Townhomes with exposed timber ceilings
  • Balconies (many with Juliet balconies)
  • Frigidaire washer/dryer
  • Frigidaire gas range
  • Fisher & Paykel refrigerators
  • Bosch diswashers
  • Hardwood & carpet flooring
  • Slab milk glass or granite countertops

Options/Upgrades include:

  • Hardwood throughout
  • Air conditioning
  • Frigidaire Microhood (microwave mounted over range – I would think this should be a standard feature)
  • Stainless steel mobile kitchen cart
  • Electronic shades

Though not slated to open its Presentation Center (700 Broadway Ave E) to the public until October 21st, Brix will begin accepting reservations on Saturday, October 7th for those who pre-registered on their website. (Editor’s note, anyone can make a reservation or purchase prior to the official grand opening.)

  • Reservations start October 7th with a $5000 deposit.
  • Purchase and Sales will begin the week of October 16th. A down payment of 5% of the purchase price and a Countrywide pre-qualification letter are required. Buyers may select any mortgage lender, but for the purchase and sale, Brix requires buyers to be pre-qualified through Countrywide.
  • Purchase appointments will be made on October 17th through October 20th.
  • Unit price ranges will be available on the 7th, currently Brix only has preliminary price ranges for model types.

    The open house was a joke. Unorganized and a real cluster ****. The Williams people seem to love to create a frenzy. It worked again but the ill will was palpable. Actual pricing was not known, details on HODs, etc. were unknown but expected commitments to be made. The softening marketing is going to make this excess a thing of the past. Williams will need to learn to put “marketing” into their name.

    Chad – Thanks for commenting on your experience. It chaotic, but at least they did give people a fair chance; many other projects quietly pre-reserve ahead of the initial offering.

    I’m not a fan of the range pricing. Obviously, the greater the interest the likelihood it’ll be at the high end of the price range. I’d prefer they just set the price so people can better judge overall value, rather than having to wait until they actually have to complete the purchase and sale contract.

  3. This project is what’s wrong with the condo developers and their inability to connect with their customers. I have experience with this project, as they caused me to lose a great deal of money. The project is very hack, poorly built and finished. Please see my blog linked below for a more detailed account, but basically, RUN from this project as fast as you can (unless you like hearing poop flow through piping directly over your dining room table and / or would like to know how to cut the wiring to the security system.

    Coincidentally, “Brix Condos Suck’s” blog is no longer available. Obviously an unfortunate victim of the economy. Many people who put deposits down on the project were not able to move in after all. I live at Brix, and am a successful realtor in Seattle. I’m very happy living here and love the entire project. The finishes are awesome, the upgrades I chose make it even more awesome, and everyone who comes over is always impressed. Just my two cents.
