Seattle, WA 98109
This urban dwelling is a concrete and steel development with mesmerizing views of Lake Union.
A combination of lofts, this project features a generous mix of 6 units. 4 residential spaces and two commercial units. The project used concrete, wood panels, metal siding and a braced frame for the exterior and its contemporary design.
The 4 residential spaces range from 2200 square feet to 2450 square feet. They are 3 levels with 3 bedrooms & 3 ½ bathrooms. They include a 2 car garage, and each have large private rooftop decks that range from 400sf to 700sf. The interiors have exposed steel columns and wood beams, stylish track lighting, stainless steel kitchens, exposed hvac, and floor to ceiling windows. Bathrooms have heated mosaic tile “Wet Rooms”, and custom cabinets. Bamboo floors and other sustainable materials were used throughout. These units have tankless water heaters that are 98% energy efficient, and variable speed furnaces that are 95% efficient. Each unit has air conditioning.
The Block has a sexy exterior and a thoughtful interior design. It is not for everyone, but when there is one available, it is definitely worth a look.
