Hjarta, which means “heart” in Icelandic, will be the tallest building in Ballard and hosted a preview event last weekend. This 79 unit mixed-use condo will be seeking LEED certification. There are two parts of the building: the south building will be condominium units and the north building’s use is currently not yet determined. There is a possibility of it becoming a rental apartment.
Amenities include a rooftop garden, kidSpace, club room, yoga room, and spin room.
Some green features include:
• water saving plumbing fixtures
• drought tolerant landscaping
• low volatile organic compounds carpets, paints, sealants and adhesive
• operable windows and ventilation systems
• conservation of natural resources with the use of renewable materials such as bamboo and cork flooring
Pryde + Johnson is the developer for Hjarta and they currently have mixed used projects in place in Green Lake, Capitol Hill, Dexter Ave and Roosevelt neighborhoods.
One bedroom $309,000-$379,000
One bedroom with study alcove $325,000-$389,000
Large one bedroom $359,000-$399,000
Two bedroom $479,000-$549,000
Most of their units come with a balcony. #01, #06 are two bedroom corner units. The floor plan has a very efficient layout with the two bedrooms separated by the living area. If you prefer a larger balcony, go with their #10.
Ballard is becoming a more and more popular neighborhood for home buyers. It has a relatively short commute to the city without the higher price tag you would have to pay for a closer neighborhood. If you are someone who is conscious about the environment and prefer a greener home, Hjarta is worth checking out.

What a great site! Any info about the other projects in Ballard? (Canal Station, Noma, Metropole)
Reviews coming soon Jason. Stay tuned!
I was wondering if you knew any more about Pryde’s planned project in Capitol Hill off of 11th? Is it a sure thing?
No, I don’t have any information on that.
