FOLLOWUP: Burned-out South Delridge property put up for sale

(WSB photo, last week)

Thanks to commenter Mem for pointing this out: 9059 16th SW, the abandoned commercial building gutted by fire nine days ago, went up for sale days later. It’s listed online at the asking price of almost $700,000. The listing says:

Builder’s Alert!! 4923 SF lot zoned LR3 in prime south Delridge located on main thoroughfare of 16th Ave SW. Value in the land. Possible 4 units. Corner Lot. New 24 townhouse project one block to the south. Walking distance new restaurants and amenties of White Center. Close to freeways to downtown/Seatac airport. Fire to duplex-tear down. Property sold in “as is” condition.

SFD said the fire’s cause could not be determined because the building was unsafe to enter; they referred it to SPD investigators, who, when last we checked, had nothing to report.

    Sounds like a candidate for Zillow Gone Wild to me!

    This is in the 9000 block of 16th, not the 6000 block. Thanks for the update!

      Sorry, thought I’d fixed that before publishing; fixed now.

    You got to be kidding me? Who in their right mind would pay that much for that piece of property? Housing prices are completely ridiculous in this area and throughout Washington State.

      Who in their right mind? Someone that likes to make money. If you’ve got the capital to buy this property and develop it, you’ll stand to make a nice profit.

    Wow. Talk about a coinkydink! Unsolvable, mysterious fire one week – up for sale the next! Talk about letting go of a bad hand…..

      @B – it’s been a week and you think it’s unsolvable?  Some people can create a conspiracy out of anything. Just look at things in the way that’s most scandalous, which is what your comment does.

Sorry, comment time is over.
