Built in 1921 as a telephone switchboard operation facility, this Seattle Historic Landmark building is being converted into 25 loft-style rental apartments. Project scope includes a complete seismic retrofit, restoration of the historic brick and terra cotta façade, a new top floor addition, a new parking garage in the basement, multi-family residential units, a common roof terrace, all new mechanical and electrical systems, full life-safety and accessibility upgrades. The building’s façade, concrete floor structure, tall floor-to- floor heights, and generous vertically proportioned windows are particularly well-suited to its transformation to residential use.
