The construction for Seattle’s first modular apartment building is already underway at 3rd Avenue and Bell Street, where workers are building the foundation and street-level space for the residential structure. These new Belltown Seattle apartments will be made individually at a factory in Oregon, to be stacked one by one when they’re finished in a style reminiscent of LEGOs.

‘N’ Habit: Belltown will be located near 3rd Avenue and Bell Street, with 49 rental units. While the base is being erected right now, the units are undergoing construction in a factory in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The factory assembly allows for faster, more efficient construction as well as evading any delays caused by bad weather. With this process, each unit is built in about 10 days, a SeattlePI.com report said.

When the units arrive by truck in the next couple of months, they will be fully complete with all finishing, plumbing, wiring, fixtures, appliances and flooring. “When the units show up, we like to say everything except the shower curtain and the toilet paper’s in place,” said Dale Sperling, the president and CEO of OneBuild, the apartment’s construction company.

“We consider them great, big, large Lego blocks, and they’re going to be attached, they’re going to be stacked, unit-by-unit over two weekends,” Sperling said in a KOMO News report (watch it below).

The current plan is that the units will be trucked to Seattle in September, and then put into place over two weekends. They are expected to require one hour each to stack into place and connect all plumbing and wiring. According to the ‘N’ Habit website, the units will be available for rent in December of this year, with studio apartments, double-lofts, and typical one- and two-bedroom units.

With the speed and quality going into these new modular units, will we see more LEGO buildings in Seattle in the future?

Just as the McGuire Apartments are headed to demolition, a new apartment project is proposed for Belltown. The 17-2tory apartment building, to be called “Alto”, will be located on 3rd and Cedar. The expected 184-unit building ‘s construction will be the first of multiple proposals in Central Seattle in the last three years to start. The building will also have 2,700 sf of retail space. The developer, Harbor Properties (who is well known for Downtown’s Harbor Steps project) bought the land in March of last year, but decided not to build until the financial market had improved.

The high demand for rentals in Seattle, especially among the younger populations in Belltown, has increased substantially in the past few years. As many of the projects in Belltown are condos, it is a nice change of pace to see some new apartment buildings. This will be the newest among a number of other buildings including 2300 Elliot, The Avalon, and Archstone Apartments, to name a few. The apartments will be aimed at middle-income renters as well, which is a plus for the younger population.

Looks like Belltown real estate is back on the rise, as we expect the residential project from Goodman Real Estate (located on Western) to start in the near future as well.
