With a new condominium building planned for 4th Ave and Bell St in Belltown, we always like to alert buyers and sellers of condos in the area of the potential view obstruction advisories related to new construction.
For this new building (going where the brick apartment building is in the photo), we hope the potential residents love the true urban lifestyle as they will be living next to one of the city's busiest fire stations :-) But the central location in Belltown, close to South Lake Union and Downtown, is a pro.
If this building is built, with it's 22 story height, it will possibly have an affect on at least a portion of the western views of units below the 25th floor at the new Insignia Condominiums. Although there will be quite a distance between Insignia and new condo building on 4th Ave, since there is a half a block's distance between them, it will still partially obstruct views of the western facing units. Having personally been up in Insignia a couple of times, there will still be a lot of water and mountains to see since this new building only represents a small percentage of the 180+ degree outlook that new owners at Insignia will be spoiled with.
But still good to be aware of of you are thinking about buying a unit at Insignia.
