On Monday, December 21, the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) reported the sale of the Selig Building, located at 907 NW Ballard Way, for $17 Million to CenterCal Properties.

Selig Real Estate Holdings purchased the building in 2012 from the City of Seattle Housing Authority for just under $5.8 Million.  The building was constructed in 1979 and has been in use as professional office space since that time. More information on this parcel can be found on the King County Department of Assessments website.

Plans For Ballard

CenterCal Properties is considering replacing the two-story office building with a 75,000-square-foot building. Just like Totem Lake, there are plans for a grocery store, professional office space, and restaurant, medical or entertainment space.  Imagine the West Woodland Neighborhood having a movie theater again!

Other recent tenants have included city and state government agencies, such as the Seattle Housing Authority, and Department of Social and Health Services.
