The former Masins furniture store in the Pioneer Square area, previously renovated by W.G. Clark, was converted from retail space to collective office space for the Center for Impact and Innovation, which houses three tenants.
The work in the early 20th Century building, a heavy timber structure with four stories plus a basement, was done on a fast track schedule that required complex scheduling and strong communications among the landlord, tenants, architect, subcontractors, and general contractor to keep the project on schedule. New offices were created on four floors, along with meeting and event areas, classrooms, new ADA restrooms, and coffee/kitchen areas. The three tenants for the new space include Impact Hub Seattle, Bainbridge Graduate Institute, and Social Ventures. They focus on offering opportunities for collaboration and networking, education, and promoting socially conscious projects.
In 2013, the project was honored by the AGC of Washington with a construction excellence award in the category of tenant improvements under $5 million.
