The properties are located at the heart of Capitol Hill at the intersection of Colfax Ave., Franklin St., and Park Ave. Pando Holdings LLC was the perfect buyer because they controlled the parking lot adjacent to the property. This will be an incredible redevelopment site for Pando Holdings,” stated Shaw.
