Empty Belltown officially off the market.
The half block site at 210 Wall Street finally has a new owner: on April 14th, an entity of AvalonBay Communities paid $24 million for the site. We have blogged about the now-empty former site of McGuire apartments in the past.
AvalonBay Communities plans to building a 24-story apartment complex on the newly purchased site. The Ankrom Moisan Architects-designed complex will feature retail and parking spaces in addition to the apartments. The complex will have three levels of varying heights: from six stories, to a higher mid-rise tower and finally a full-height, 24-story tower. In addition to 300 apartments, the tower will also feature 10,000 square feet of retail along Wall Street, Vine Street and 2nd Avenue – and over two hundred parking spots.
The site at 210 Wall Street is well known to residents of Belltown: The MacGuire building which formerly occupied the site was torn down five years ago due to construction defects.
In addition to Ankrom Moisan Architects, AvalonBay communities chose Brumbaugh & Associates as the project’s landscape architects.Email
