Old Fed Building Sold; Eco-Village Helps Seattle's Homeless

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.

HELPING HANDS -- For all of the growth and expansion and luxury condo buildings in Seattle, homelessness is an issue that's not going away. Nonprofit Sawhorse Revolution wants to create The Impossible City, a moveable eco-village that's full of collapsible and easily transportable, eco-friendly tiny homes built by teens for those without shelter. Find out more about the project and how you can help.

STATE O'THE MARKET -- According to a new report by NWMLS, the median price of homes sold in Seattle this March rose 18.9 percent since last year to $535,000 ($411,200 across King County). That's the biggest leap upward in about five years. If you're in the market for a new home, this all means you're certain to be up against multiple offers and expected to come in over the ask with no help from the seller more often than not.

SOLD STUFF -- Once offered for free and also thought to be the home of a new Seattle school, we know now the former Federal Reserve Building in downtown was sold to Martin Selig Real Estate. Selig says he plans to refurbish the building at 1015 Second Avenue and turn it into offices.
