LUP developed this character office building located in Seattle’s Central Business District. 1012 First Avenue is a 33,000 square foot masonry building constructed in 1893 that has retained its original architectural character and is one of the oldest existing commercial buildings located along First Avenue north of Pioneer Square, just a block away from Seattle’s waterfront. The restoration included a full structural retrofit and comprehensive updates to all mechanical systems as well as the addition of a “jewel box” rooftop penthouse office floor and deck. The rehabilitation strategy focused on maintaining the existing character of the building for creative office use and a restaurant on the ground floor.
