Queen Anne: A Real Estate Hot Spot

Lower Queen Anne may be getting a new apartment building as Continental Properties, a Bellevue developer, submitted plans for an 81-unit complex recently.  Lower Queen Anne, home to the Space Needle, Seattle Center and plenty of hot spots continues to be a sought-after neighborhood.    The area is popular for single-family homes, like this Queen Anne town home, or for condos, like this one in the old Queen Anne High school.  Rentals are also popular, like this 5-bedroom single family home on Queen Anne Hill.  No matter what you are looking for, Queen Anne is a great place to start. 

The new apartment building will feature 81 apartments, 9 of which will be live/work as well as an 81-car parking garage.  The plans will reviewed during a design guidance meeting at Queen Anne Community Center in February.  Please see the full article for more information.

Queen Anne Winter Tradition

 Snowfall in Queen Anne means one thing is a certainty.  Sledding down the counterbalance on Queen Anne Avenue!  The road was closed by 9:00 a.m. Wednesday and it did not take long for the sledders to migrate to the area.  All of the local TV stations along with the Weather Channel were perched at the bottom of the Counterbalance at Quenn Anne Ave. and Roy St.  No couches were seen this time traversing the hill but there is still time!

Mayor McGinn Coming to Queen Anne

Mayor McGinn will make a rare appearance in Queen Anne on January 10 at the Queen Anne Community Center located at 1901 1st Ave. W. 

A Q&A session with the mayor will be from 6:40 to 8:00 P.M.  preceded by a performance of local artists at 6:30 P.M.  From 5:30 to 6:30 there will be a meet and greet with city departments and local community
organizations, who will  have information tables, answer questions and offer volunteer opportunities.

The Mayor does not appear in Queen Anne very often so come by.  Given the number of development projects in the works for the area, I’m sure the evnt will be well attended!
