Gridiron Condos – 75% sold and counting
The new Gridiron condos in Pioneer Square demonstrate how historic buildings can have new purpose without losing their unique qualities. Located on a unique, triangular site, the original 1903 Johnson Plumbing Supply Building that forms the base of the building predates Pioneer Place Park’s iconic 1909 Victorian Pergola. Today the building has new life as residential condominiums as envisioned by Daniels Real Estate.
A new addition inserted into the existing historic brick facade creates a new 11-story, window wall clad high-rise offering 108 homes with restaurants and retail at its base. The public right-of-way surrounding Gridiron is planned for “Railroad Way” a part of Seattle’s proposed Waterfront Park acting as a pedestrian gateway characterized by the surge of intense activity and events its stadium neighbors provide.
“Our goal with Gridiron was to preserve the charm and character of the old masonry building while adding to the vitality and vibrancy of the neighborhood,” Daniels said. “I have spent years focusing on the revitalization of Pioneer Square and I wanted Gridiron to be the apex of that work — blending the history of this 1852 neighborhood with modern conveniences.”
The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce recently reported that the Gridiron condo sales recently topped 75% of the 108 units. It is the only condominium project planned in open in Seattle this year.
