If you missed yesterday’s Kiro 7 News regarding downtown zoning and how it is affecting the views of some condo owners, particularly for Cosmopolitan, watch their video here and read more on related issues.

Other Condos that are expected to be affected under the new zoning regulations:

Condominium                  Affected by

Cristalla                        2015 2nd Ave- Mixed-use Building


Escala                         1913 5th Ave- Hotel/Condo


Fifteen-Twenty One      120 Pike St- Mixed-use building


Sometimes even after due diligence on the homebuyer’s part, the city can still change the zoning. I think the question that homebuyers ultimately have to ask themselves is assuming that the view may be affected by possible future plans, how much of a premium are they willing to pay for that particular view unit.
