Pioneer Square’s Monterey Hotel, which houses the Chief Seattle Club and 11 market-rate lofts, underwent a seismic and building-system upgrade.

The Monterey Hotel renovation, completed in 2008, is a LEED silver rehabilitation of a three-story masonry structure in Seattle’s Pioneer Square Historic District.

Since its original 1890 construction, the building has undergone numerous changes, including its most significant transformation around 1928. The most recent renovation, which included a full seismic and architectural building-system upgrade, reclaimed the building for the Chief Seattle Club and Monterey Lofts.

One of the project’s primary goals was to preserve the historic architectural nature of the exterior envelope and bring back to life the brickwork that had deteriorated over the years. Due to the brick material’s natural durability and longevity, the project was able to continue to utilize the 120-year-old building envelope as its primary facade.
