More than half of Edmonds School condos sold

Sales of the Edmonds School condos are brisk, even as the building is months from completion.
Its prime location is one of the hallmarks of the Edmonds School project at 901 D St NE, which is comprised of 20 condo units in the main building and three adjacent townhomes.
“Our buyers are people who really want to be on [Capitol] Hill,” says Timur Loynab, sales director for the building and a McWilliams Ballard real estate agent.
“This building represents a wonderful marriage of the old and the new” – the charm of the old building’s tall ceilings, gigantic windows and exposed brick, plus luxe touches like Bosch dishwashers and Silestone cabinetry.
Snead Construction is the contractor of record, while CAS Riegler and Ditto Residential are the developers.
Loynab says that all eight studio and one-bedroom configurations have been sold, at prices ranging from $389,900 to $479,900. Of the 12 two-bedroom configurations that are in the building, seven remain at press time. All of the building’s top-floor units are two-story, duplex-style.
The two-bedrooms are priced between $829,900 and $1.1 million, with the largest including a living room that takes up a portion of a bridge-like structure that connects the former school building with the townhomes on 9th Street NE.
TTR Sotheby’s is handling the sales of the townhomes. Each has five bedrooms and spans about 3,600 square feet. They are on sale for $1,649,000 each.
In hard-hat tours that began late last year, visitors got to get a good look at the bones of the main building, Loynab says. “The restoration done to the brickwork is just amazing.”
There will be an open house on March 29 and March 30, from 2:00-4:00pm.
