Carbon 56 is a condo conversion in South Lake Union that had unfortunate timing when the project was released for sale the first time in mid-2007. Months into their sales launch the recession hit and the project couldn’t sell the remaining 20 units out of the 56 total in the building.
The developer decided to keep those remaining 20 units and lease them until the market turned around. They are now ready to reintroduce those 20 units to the market. Since the units have been rented, they are doing renovations to freshen and update them for sale. The renovations to each unit include new flooring, repainting the entire interior, replacing the baseboard molding, installing new track lighting and adding glass subway tile backsplashes in the kitchens.
