Seattle, Wash. (November 16, 2020) – A University District townhome development site, located at 4741 18th Avenue NE in Seattle, Washington, has sold for $1,640,000 ($380 per land square foot). Dylan Simon, Jerrid Anderson, and Matt Laird of the Simon and Anderson team, a multifamily investment team at Kidder Mathews, were the exclusive listing brokers for the seller, SeaLevel Properties, a Seattle area, family-owned builder. The buyer was a private developer and not represented by a broker.

Located within the University of Washington’s Greek Row, the development site is entitled for five efficiently designed townhomes offering a combined 36 bedrooms intended for student housing. The listing generated multiple offers above the list price from a competitive bidding process. The transaction was completed in 63 days from the start of marketing to the close of escrow on November 10.

“Although there are some near-term challenges facing the University District, we fully believe in the long-term growth and desirability of the neighborhood. This project is perfectly poised to take advantage of that upside upon its completion in 2022,” said Laird.
