Best Views in Belltown?

By on December 22, 2007 in Belltown Condos, Real Estate with 5 Comments

3031 Western SeattleMartin Selig Real Estate is proposing a new 14-story apartment building adjacent to the Olympic Sculpture Park. Located on the north end of the park, residents at the 3031 Western project will enjoy unobstructed front-row park, downtown and Elliott Bay views.

…the vision calls for layers of glass “veils” with various degrees of translucency and transparency to create an ephemeral and ever-changing canvas for light and shadow as viewed from the park. Balconies of each unit will feature floor-to-ceiling glass, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces…

But, those glass “veils” come at a price, at least for Alexandria and Trio owners. The proposed building will sit directly across from the North half of the Alexandria and will likely block most of the SW park & bay views from Trio.

An early design guidance meeting for the project has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 8th at 5:30pm. The meeting will take place in the Boards and Commissions Room L280 at Seattle City Hall.

    This building would be a great addition here! It would replace that ugly parking garage that looks like it is about to crumble. I recognize that some will lose their views, but that is a basic fact of life when living in the city. I work next door, and will lose the view I have of the sculpture park, but increasing the density of living around here would be great. My hope is that with more people the food and entertainment options will continue to increase in this area.

    My only question is who is going to want to pay to rent such an expensive apartment?

    I would tend to think it would be a better location for a hotel than apartments.

    just what will the rent be?

    Strip – at this time, it’s too early to tell if the project will even proceed. Though, if it does, I suspect it will be among the higher priced Belltown units.

    i guess after reading about the crime level and lack of grocery/lifestyle stores near by, i just don’t see the draw. corporate housing? retirement community? who knows-
    looks beautiful though–
