SEATTLE | 9th and Lenora | 440 FT | 41 FLOORS


SEATTLE — An entity related to GID Development Group of Boston paid $16 million for land at 2101 Ninth Ave. where it is planning a 41-story, 396-unit apartment project.

The seller is an entity related to Cornish College of the Arts. Cornish bought the site in 2003 for $4.6 million.

GID has started construction on a 41-story, 355-unit apartment tower at Eighth and Lenora, across the street.

Permit records show GID filed for shoring and excavation permits for the tower on Ninth last month.

Weber Thompson is designing both projects for GID. Sellen Construction Co. is the general contractor for the Eighth and Lenora tower.



Designed Approved For 41 Story Apartment At 9th and Lenora

Denny Triangle is getting another high-rise. It will be a 41 story apartment located at 9th and Lenora.

It has been in the works now for months – the Developer GID Development group just received design approval from the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (according to the DJC). They are the same group that has been developing the cool steel and glass structure at 8th and Lenora – another 41 story project with 355 units.

Enso at 8th and Blanchard and 2200 Westlake (Denny and Westlake) are the 2 closest condos to the 41 story tower. The west building at 2200 Westlake that we refer to as 900 Lenora is located directly accross the street from the new project.

Construction is expected to begin this spring. The tower, will feature 430 units and 238 parking spaces. It is exciting to see what will occupy the 8,000sf of retail space. Although views are blocked for many West facing 2200 owners, the retail component and the life that brings to the city is what is really important
