Seattle’s oldest neighborhood is finally becoming the destination shoppers and diners have dreamed of. A second wave of retail, including Intrigue Chocolate, Elm Coffee and Casco Antiguo, have blossomed on the heels of Bar Sajor, The London Plane, and Cone & Steiner. Vibrant outdoor furniture, games, and programmed activities in Occidental Park are collectively breathing new life into Pioneer Square.
The only thing missing now are more places to live. From January to June of 2015, only seven individual home sales occurred in Pioneer Square, despite thousands of people searching Redfin.com for homes in the area during the same time period. As Seattle grapples with a population boom and the lowest housing supply in decades, demand is higher than ever.
Daniels Real Estate, a successful and respected developer in historic, adaptive reuse, will soon bring relief to the neighborhood. Gridiron, a 107-unit condominium tower with ground floor retail, is planned at the intersection of Occidental Avenue S and Railroad Avenue. Redfin Builder Services is delighted to represent Gridiron on behalf of Daniels.
“Daniels Real Estate is excited that Gridiron will be the first new construction of for-sale housing in Pioneer Square since 1985 and will have a range of units and pricing to suit the needs of a variety of buyers,” said Kevin Daniels. “It was important that we find the right sales team, and Redfin’s technology makes it the only brokerage that can target millions of buyers online.”
Daniels and Hewitt Architects will preserve and reinforce the century-old brick Seattle Plumbing Supply building, The residences will rise to 11 stories, featuring floor to ceiling windows, open floor plans with city and mountain views. Gridiron is adjacent to the planned Stadium Plaza park at the redeveloped Seattle Waterfront Promenade.
Kate Knight is the National Builder Services Manager for Redfin.
