215 2nd Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98104, United States
Date Built:
Original Architect /
Original Owners:
Turn of the century "Chicago-style" warehouse with heavy timber framing and wood floor decking.

Historic Seattle’s Role:

Built in 1900, this Chicago-style warehouse features heavy timber framing and wood-floor decking. With this project in 1985, Historic Seattle created housing in Pioneer Square at a time when little existed. Historic Seattle also provided financing assistance and undertook a portion of the renovation. The building is a contributing resource to the Pioneer Square Historic District. The property was sold with Historic Seattle subordinating its underlying property interests.

Current and Future Uses:

The building mixes moderate-income residential apartments with retail space on the ground floor, adjacent to Waterfall Garden. It was the first housing demonstration project in Pioneer Square.
