Talking History: Railspur's first completed building breathes new life into 1906 warehouse

A/E Editor

Renovate and bring a 1906 warehouse into the Twenty-First Century but in a way that respects and reflects the building’s history. This was the design vision for the recently completed 419 Occidental, phase one of developer Urban Villages Railspur project. The result is a striking property that at once evokes images of trains transporting materials to 20th Century laborers and of modern day office workers innovating in tech filled spaces.

419 Occidental is a 89,000-square-foot mixed use seven story project in historic Pioneer Square. The project also has a mezzanine level made of CLT that opens out onto two rooftop decks offering great views of the city and sound. The first floor and basement is approximately 15,202 square-foot and will house a food hall on the first floor with plans for a noodle restaurant/bar and speakeasy on the basement level. The remaining six floors and the mezzanine offer approximately 77,000 square-foot of office space.
