The Casey condos and lofts were built in 2007 and are the first condos in the country that are LEED certified platinum and this is just the beginning of what the Casey has to offer. It comes with a 24 hour concierge, an amazing location and a unique building design.

The Casey has 61 units and is known for it's larger floor plans, all floors only have five condos, this is a very unique design. It stands 16 stories tall with a warm exterior finish. This makes the Casey a desirable building because you get more space, parking and the amazing city location all rolled into one package. The Pearl district did have a building code that prevented developers from building over 8 stories for many years, but with all the new condo projects in NW Portland in the last 10 years that restriction in long gone.

The Pearl district is known for its First Thursday events. Every month on the first Thursday of the month the art galleries and shops stay open late for people to browse and shop. It has become quite popular, see the website for more details, www.explorethepearl.com. There are many local shops and restaurants and also some national retailers. Anthropologie came around 6 years ago and is a landmark for shoppers. The Casey is a few blocks away from the streetcar line, Whole Foods, Portland Center Stage and is in the heart of the Brewery Blocks. This is the quintessential NW Portland location! It would be hard to run out of things to do in this neighborhood, you are just steps away from tons of Portland fun. Don’t miss Caffe Umbria located in the downstairs retail space. It is rumored to have the best cappuccino in town and you can often find soccer playing on the flat screens. It’s a modern taste of Italy in the middle of Portland.

The concierge service is a rare feature that the Casey has. There are only a handful of condos in Portland that offer this service. It is what differentiates a regular condo from a luxury condo. What an amazing thing! The possibilities are endless with a 24 hour concierge and the safety of the building in increased as well.

The design of this building is a contrast to many of the modern condos that have been built in the Pearl district in the last 10 years. First and foremost is the color of the exterior of the building and then there’s the LEED certification that was mentioned earlier. The developers tried to use local sustainable resources where available while building the Casey while making it pleasing to the landscape and city. This building arguably one of the most green properties in Portland.

There are currently 8 condos for sale in the Casey ranging from $300,000 up to $2,148,000 with an average of $598 per square foot. The condos for sale are on average 1924 square feet and have been on the market for 52 days. In the last 90 days no condos have sold. There are 3 condos pending sale in the Casey at this time ranging from $519,900 up to $1,350,000 with an average of $623 per square foot. 

I believe the Casey to be a warm spot in the Pearl districts horizon. Most buildings in the area are concrete or brick, the Casey's exterior is made from wood and concrete and wears a bold curry colored facade. It is also a quarter block in size instead of a half or a whole block like many Portland condo projects, which makes it appear less dense and as if it was always meant to be there. The units are extremely livable and offer lots of usable amenities, http://www.zipcar.com/portland/find-cars . You can even have a zip car delivered right to the front door as an alternate form of transportation. Overall the Casey has brought a new flavor to Portland’s architecture and condo communities.
