The Danielle Condo – Ballard

By on August 23, 2008 in Ballard Condos, Feature with 11 Comments

The Danielle is the latest new construction condominium development in Ballard. Located at the corner of 24th Ave NW and NW 56th Street, The Danielle is conveniently near the heart of old Ballard.

The six-story building will offer 31 homes with numerous floor plans from open one-bedrooms to two-bedroom penthouses. The homes range in size from 590 sq ft to 1,240 sq ft. One unit in particular, a 1,230 two-bedroom comes with a large 490 sq ft wrap-around terrace.

The current price points will make The Danielle attractive with the one-bedrooms expected to begin from the mid-$200,000s to the upper-$300,000s. The two-bedrooms will be offered from the $500,000s.

The Danielle is anticipating sales to being later this Autumn with a May 2009 occupancy time frame.

A few of the home features and details include:

  • Premium hardwoods in living area and kitchen, and carpeting in bedrooms and dens
  • Slab stone countertops and undermount sinks with European faucets
  • Wood cabinets with 42″ uppers
  • Radiant floor heating in master bath
  • Ceiling height tiled bath surround
  • Resource efficient washer and dryer
  • Gas fireplace in select units
  • AC-ready vent ports and wiring
  • Parking and storage

The Danielle has a pretty good website (, particularly for a project of this size. They’ve kept use of flash to a minimum, but they do have a nifty rotating 360 degree 3D image of the building that shows where the homes are located within the building, as well as, floor plates and plans.

The building is situated kitty-corner from the new QFC store and is only a few blocks from the shops, cafes and restaurants of old Ballard.

  1. Ben, I’m just curious how the condo market is doing in Seattle. I realize you are in a very different market than Eugene, Oregon but condo sales here are not good. Single family homes are doing much better.

    We don’t have anything like The Danielle either, but how many other condos in Seattle are in that catagory? Any?

    I’ll be through there in about 3 weeks on my way to Vancouver Island.

  2. Yeah, the condo market here in Myrtle Beach was dead here for the last 18 months. The only things sellng were are short sales, foreclosures and single family homes (and not many of those). Things appear to be picking as prices head downward. We shall see. Good luck to all.

  3. The condo market here in Tucson Az is pretty much non-existent. Tucson has never really had much of a true “condo development” market most of the condo’s are simply converted apartments which doesn’t work out so well, however with the sever downturn in the Tucson Real Estate Market those are not being developed at all. As far as this project The Danielle Condo it seems like an affordable option that buyers could take advantage of. The outside of the development looks very impressive and that always sets the buyers mood which helps sell condos within.

  4. Russell Volk says:

    What a beautiful building. Even though the market is tough, buyers are still buying something that will be worth lots of money in the future.

    Great post.

  5. jeff says:

    The big question should be…….When are you going to switch direction on this project and turn it into APARTMENTS!?! I mean come on, talk about bad timing.

  6. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Jeff – I thought the same thing, too. They’re in a tough situation given the market and I’m sure they’re keeping both options option, waiting to see how things play out. Provided they keep moving forward, I think condos will win out for Danielle. Ballard has at least 3 new large apartment buildings under construction with potentially two more in the works, not to mention the 2 that recently completed. Given the likely completion time frame (where they’re at now, I’m not sure the May ’09 completion date is viable), Ballard will be saturated with new apartments. On the other hand, Danielle is the only new condo development on the horizon, which could work in its favor. Time will tell.

  7. Dorothy Nerison says:

    How many of these condos are sold so far?
    we toured these and I liked the penthouse. Again, what is the square footage and price

  8. Jae Evans says:

    In Response to Dorothy’s comment, We are over 15% sold with our scheduled completion now at JULY 15th. I don’t think we are “lucky” to be pre-selling in this market but see it more of a matter of the right pricing with quality product.

    Also in response to some other comments in this thread, we have the ability to price our homes at or below today’s market value without the bank getting involved. This project has taken a while to come to market which I feel is a bit of a blessing as we are one of really only two new construction communities in the heart of Ballard.

    We also have the luxury of having our construction lender be our preferred lender for our buyers. That is Golf Savings Bank who has their own portfolio options for buyers if need be with rates that are on par with everyone else so financing is not an issue. There is no retail in the building which many like and we should have our FHA approval in a week or two.

    Yes, I’m the sales manager there and so a little biased but I do feel blessed to be a part of not only a well built, well designed project that has a great residential location and views but also is NOT underwater.
