New Seattle Apartments a Test of Light-Rail’s Lure

seattle apartmentsAs a follow up to my article on Seattle apartments I found this and wanted to link to it.

Seattle apartment developers created a complex in a hard to develop area that is accross the street form the light rail station. Other developers have a wait and see attitude. They will build if this project is successful. unfortunately the rent in these Seattle apartments is about 40 percent higher than anywhere else in the city according to http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2015109817_othello21.html.

“I don’t know if there’s been a better time to be in the apartment industry than right now,” George Petrie, CEO of Goodman Real Estate, a major apartment developer, told a real-estate forum this week.

But Southeast Seattle is a new frontier for the industry. Before the Seattle apartments near the light rail station, “that area hadn’t seen any conventional [for-profit] new construction in many years,” TomCain says.
