I don’t understand the concept of a communal laundry area in a luxury condo building. The cost of space and the actual appliances for each unit would add an immaterial amount to the cost of each unit. The potential buyer is shelling out a huge chunk of cash and has to take their clothes to the laundromat? Strange…
i agree. community laundry is quite old school and unpleasant. seems like developer tried to save some money, hopefully the units are priced at a major discount off market.
If the property was a conversion from an apartment it can be pretty difficult to retrofit to put in washer and dryers if they were not there originally. It still doesnt make it any less annoying for people that want them inside their unit.
What a treat to see this, my former hangout while an SU student ($700/mo for unit 605 in Y2K) now a $500K condo. I remember very nearly getting used to the constant ambulance sirens heading for Harborview two blocks away. I followed the link to the virtual tour, and it appears the artist hired to animate it was ordered to exaggerate the size of every interior space by about one-third. Tactics like that make one wonder what else they may be hiding. Best of luck to whoever bites here.
I checked it out. Sad to see just how far my $ will go. The view untis would be nice…except the high rise going up across the street will block them. And the sirens – thanks, forgot about those.
Used to rent an apt. on the 5th floor from ’99-’02. $550 for a one bedroom and though it wasn’t glitzy by any means it was very decent esp. for the area & proximity to downtown. Kind of bittersweet to see those humble apartments turned into condos. The ambulences did suck but you really do get used to them. I loved living there during college (AIS). Happiest time of my life.
