The new owners of this Belltown condo will have the pleasure of watching ferries come and go on the waterfront, the Great Wheel spinning, and of course every spectacular sunset over the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. Sold for $1,100,000, this condo is in a prime downtown location and was remodeled to take advantage of the stunning 180-degree views.

This two-bedroom, two-bath unit features hardwood floors throughout; a sharp kitchen with granite-slab counter tops, stainless steel appliances and custom cabinets; a luxurious master suite with a walk-in closet and a view even from the bathtub; and resort-style amenities. A covered view terrace is the icing on the cake.

Downtown Living just got easier; according to the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, a new grocery store plans to move in downtown to support the downtown residents. H Mart, is a New Jersey based grocery chain, that hopes to attract more folks to live in the downtown condos and apartments to it’s 20,000 sf store in the Broadacres Building at 2nd & Pine Street, in the old Nordstrom Rack location. The store also hopes to attract passersby, and tourists to it’s storefront. The grocery store will sell Asian products, and offer cooking tips from a display kitchen. There will also be some parking in the back of the building, and an escalator for those coming off the street to the below ground store. grocery

The downtown H Mart will actually be an H Mart Express, a smaller version of their standard stores. If you’d like to get a sneak peek at what an H Mart is like, you can go to their opening of one of the chain’s stores in Lakewood tomorrow; a bigger version of the one going in downtown, at 43,000 sf. Construction on the store is scheduled to begin this October, and completed April of 2014.
