Landmark Properties Buys Land Assemblage in Seattle, Plans 1,600-Bed Student Housing Project
SEATTLE — Landmark Properties has acquired the 11-parcel land assemblage in Seattle’s University District. A group of undisclosed sellers sold the fee-simple assemblage, which was rezoned for greater density and taller buildings in 2017, for $39 million, or $950 per square foot.
In 2021, Landmark Properties plans to begin construction on The Standard at Seattle, a three-building purpose-built student housing property with approximately 1,600 beds at the site, which spans nearly an acre from 4202 to 4238 12th Ave. NE. The site is situated three blocks from the University of Washington and across the street from the future U-District Light Rail Station.
Upon completion, The Standard at Seattle will feature two 25-story towers and a seven-story mid-rise building. The 500,000-square-foot property will offer a variety of floor plans and approximately 8,500 square feet of ground-level retail space. The project is slated to be delivered in one phase by fall 2023. Additionally, Landmark plans to preserve the existing Canterbury Apartments, a 16-unit co-op multifamily building on Brooklyn Avenue NE.
Tim McKay, Dan Chhan and Sam Wayne of Colliers International represented the sellers for a portion of the transaction, specifically for eight of the 11 parcels.
