Development in the Stadium District

 The Trigger BuildingThe Stadium District in Seattle has seen a lot of development in the past few years. There were rumors once about some big time investors taking over the container shipping area and building condos, but there’s no way the Port of Seattle is giving up that property.

Smaller based investors are having a heyday. For example, a 1923 building known as the K. R. Trigger Building on First Ave So. Was purchased by Andre van der Most in 2006. He’s done a considerable amount of work on the building and is working now to improve on the basement storage areas. The building has three floors above grade and is almost full. There are three spaces still looking for tenants. They are about 400-600 square feet in size, but adjustments can be made.

The Trigger Building

Other tenants in the building include a craft brewery, a stylist, designers of different sorts, a mortgage company, and others, including Andre’s real estate brokerage, RealNovations, which specializes in investing in real estate with IRA accounts. You can find out more at his website, or give me a call and I’ll put you in touch with him.

Glenn, great information on the K. R. Trigger Building.  And I've got to believe you're right about the Port of Seattle.

The U of W also seems to hold a lot of property in that area also...
I hope you have a great day Glenn,

David - The Port just said no to over the top dreamers.

Paul - They probably do. They seem to have ownership in many places in Western Washington.

Having not been in Seattle in about 6 years, I was amazed at how beautiful parts of downtown have become. I have to say they have done a great job of cleaning up Seattle and making it a place I wouldn't be afraid to walk around in.

Andre - You're welcome.

Todd - Now if we could get our pro teams to perform even more people would come to enjoy the area.
