Pricing set on new condos going up in Hill East

The Kingston

Every condo unit in the Kingston will have a balcony or roof deck of its own.
That’s just one of the perks in this new 12-unit, pet-friendly building taking shape now in Hill East, at 401 15th Street SE.
In condo-light Capitol Hill, the contemporary building stands out among block after block of single-family attached rowhouses.
The top floor will feature three 1,000 square-foot duplexes, says Jessica Wilkie, the agent from M Square Real Estate who is handling sales. Pricing ranges from $609,000 to $675,000 for these.
Four two-bedroom units (each $529,000) make up the third floor, and three one-bedrooms ($309,000) the second. Two remaining units, to be priced below market for qualified buyers, include one two-bedroom and one one-bedroom unit, the latter at 559 square feet. Six parking spots will also be part of the finished project.
The developer is Goodeon Kingston LLC.
The fierce winter slowed construction down, Wilkie says, but did not dampen enthusiasm from would-be condo owners.
“There’s a lot of interest,” Wilkie says. “I haven’t put them on [MLS, the national real estate database] yet, but I am keeping a list of interested parties.”
Wilkie’s also awaiting “condo docs,” the documents that guide how and whether owners may rent our their units, the amount of fees levied per unit that will go into a building-wide account for maintenance and other services and other aspects of condo living.  
One last perk, and a mighty tasty one?
Future condo dwellers will be able to walk about 20 steps to The Pretzel Bakery and its amazing soft pretzels and basil lemonade. 
Wilkie says the condos are on track to be delivered by the early fall.
