The Daily Journal of Commerce's Real Estate reporter, Nat Levy, marked the day the first Montana Circle home to be listed with an in-depth look into the care and detail that went into such an impressive project.
The Homes at Fort Lawton did not always exist in Discovery Park; in fact, Discovery Park itself owes its existence to the previously held US Army fort being bequeathed back to the city of Seattle. The opportunity to live just minutes from downtown Seattle, all while feeling a world-away in an expansive 534-acre park with breath-taking views of the Puget Sound and Olympics.
The history of the land is as interesting as the project of renovating and preserving these homes.
The Homes at Fort Lawton's biggest press mention of the day is from the Seattle Times. As the largest newspaper in the state, an exhibition from the Times on the project did not go unnoticed.
Announcing the official first home to hit the market for sale, the Times chronicles the huge undertaking made by Rise Properties, who purchased the vast property from the US Navy in February. The chance to own a piece of property amidst Seattle's preeminent public park is enough to garner attention and buzz on its own, the Times notes.
As such, bidding wars are to be expected: President and CEO of Realogics Sotheby's International Realty, Dean Jones, expects multiple offers on each of these extremely unique homes as they come to market.
