Two Eastlake properties were featured in the Daily Journal of Commerce today. The mammoth construction going in where the old Mammoth restaurant used to be is coming along, and as the DJC notes, “it is gradually being unwrapped at 2517 Eastlake Ave. E.” The new building is named the Liza Apartments. Their website lists them as luxury, opening in 2024.
“The project is targeting LEED Gold certification,” writes the DJC, “and is participating in the city’s Living Building Pilot Program. That means various green features including landscaping with low-maintenance native plants, rooftop bee apiary, and greywater recycling system for irrigating the landscaping. (Also, no fertilizers or pesticides will be used for the latter.)”
The 207-unit building will have 96 parking stalls underneath accessed via Louisa St., and 181 bike stalls.
There will be retail/commercial space at the corner of Louisa St. and Eastlake Ave. Mammoth Restaurant has said in the past that it is interested in returning to Eastlake – their website says the current Ballard location is temporary, so maybe.
The second Eastlake property in the DJC news is the sale of an historic 15-unit apartment building at 2037 Boylston Ave. E. known as the Aldora. The three-story 1929 building sold for $4 million. It last sold for $476,800 in 1986. Fingers crossed that this beauty is not a teardown and that the investors will be doing renovations instead!
