Built in the aftermath of the Great Fire of Seattle in 1905, the former Seattle Plumbing Company Warehouse serves as the foundation for the Stadium Lofts project. Located at the intersection of Pioneer Square, Sodo and the International District, the new project aims to preserve the original historic character of the neighborhood.
The original brick façade of building will be preserved while at the same time incorporating visually distinct elements of the expansion, the Trace Lofts conversion in Capitol Hill is a similar project. 69 loft units will be built above the former warehouse, with three live/work loft spaces on the ground floor along with a bistro.
Stadium Lofts is slated to be completed in 2008 and many of the units will include private terraces or balconies. Units will also include exposed brick, wood windows in the historic portion and large metal sliding energy efficient windows in the new portions of the building.
Common features include 16’10’ exposed wood ceilings with heavy fir beams, two story windows, environmentally-friendly cork flooring, stainless steel gas cooktops, mobile steel kitchen islands and stone kitchen countertops.
In addition, occupants will have access to a common landscaped community courtyard, as well as a fourth floor intimate garden terrace. Limited pre-sales will start in the spring of this year with the sales center opening in the winter of 2008. Prices are expected to range from high $200,000 to $700,000.

Nothing seems to be going on with the Stadium Lofts. Word in the neighborhood was that the developer had asked for permission to go at least two floors higher than the initial plans called for, presumably to make more profit.
I don’t know if they ever got approval on it or not, but I walk my dog down there regularly and absolutely nothing seems to be going on with the building.
Wendy, if you get any advance info on the big project slated to break ground soon in the north parking lot of Qwest Field, it’d be appreciated. At the Florentine we haven’t heard anything yet, but with Starbucks building HQ office space on 1st Ave for 1800 employees, there’s bound to be something breaking free on this end of downtown soon.
