Belltown Real Estate


The parking lot on the corner of 1st Avenue and Vine street is getting developed into apartments! As reported Tuesday by the Daily Journal of Commerce, the Schuster Group is purchasing the property with the intent to develop it for a 12-story building that will contain 132 apartments.

Keeping with the style of the greenway on Vine Street, the Schuster Group plans to include a plaza on the corner of Western, as well as winding sidewalks toward the waterfront. An upper patio will provide excellent views of Elliott Bay.

To be located at 2521 Western Ave., the new apartment building will be called the Walton Lofts, and look to be a great addition to our Belltown real estate!
