Portland-based developer Gerding Edlen has bought a half-acre property on Broadway near Seattle University, and says it plans to start construction in August on a six-story, 118-unit apartment building.
Gerding Edlen paid $5.6 million for the site at Broadway and East Jefferson Street, according to public records.
The seller, Valencia Capital Management of Dallas, which paid $3.14 million for the property in 2007, persuaded city officials last month to change the property's zoning and approve the apartment project.
Gerding Edlen's last development in the Seattle area was Bellevue Towers, a 43-story, two-tower condo project in downtown Bellevue that was completed in early 2009 after the housing bubble burst. The project was plagued by slow sales, and was turned over to lenders in December to avoid foreclosure.
