From master planned communities to historic renovation.

Perseverance and patience pay dividends for preservation...

In 1999 Triad took over an abandoned luggage factory along the Seattle waterfront. With the Port of Seattle nearing completion on their new cruise ship terminal at Pier 66, the site seemed to be an ideal space for a hotel. But then the market shifted and Triad had to reevaluate its development plan.

Not be deterred, Triad worked with a local internet company planning to convert the building into high-tech office space. After many more months of design work and expense, the dot-com bubble burst - sending Triad back to the drawing board.

The third design iteration came at the request of a local art school. Just about the time the new design was permitted, the September 11 attacks took place - and the art school learned that their landlord wouldn't be needing the space back after all.

In Spring 2005 construction finally began to convert the building into mini-storage, small office and artist studio space. The conversion included all new utilities, seismic upgrading, windows, elevators, and of course, interior walls. There are currently plans to rehab an additional 40,000 square feet in the south building to provide space for Class A office space and a school.
