Sneak Peek – Landes Condo


Landes is the newest community planned for First Hill at 8th and Marion. Landes is named after Seattle’s first & only woman mayor, Bertha Knight Landes, who was elected in 1926. Construction is expected to start around Spring 2007.

Update: The developer is contemplating developing the project as apartments rather than condos, though the building will be constructed to condo-grade. A decision will be forthcoming this summer.

Update 2: It now appears Landes will be developed as apartments.

    Any presales yet?

  2. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    They haven’t started yet. Hopefully, they’ll provide more info shortly.

  3. Dave Simms says:

    I am really interested in something around this area, but most interested in something close to the Catholic Church @ 910 Marion Street. What do you know about this area, and what is available for presale?
    We are looking small and convienient. A place we can come into town land, relax, go to dinner, and sleep. Doesn’t need a bedroom, but as investment goes, we want to protect our investment and make the most of it too!


  4. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Dave – Thanks for the info. I will contact you directly.

  5. Brian Silkworth & Bill Colter says:

    Interested in more information as it comes available. We too are looking in the First Hill area. Also interested in the Live/Work aspect as we’re looking to buy new office space in 2009 – 2010.

    Dave / Brian / Bill – I’m not sure about the status of this project. It was going to be marketed by Williams Marketing but it’s no longer on their website. I also couldn’t find any info on the architect’s (NBBJ) or developer’s (Harbor Properties) websites either.

    On 2/13/07 a permit was issued which referred to the project as apartments.

  7. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    Update – I contacted the developer to verify the status of this project. Their response is that they are undecided whether to market the project as apartments or condos and will likely make a determination at this summer. They are developing the project with condominium-grade finishes.

    Landes is not a concrete structure.

    I live at M street right across from Landes and see that it is wood and the floors/ceilings are separated by 12″ of air in between 2 layers of plywood each 3/4 inches.

    What a disaster noise wise!!!!!
