The grand opening celebration was well-attended by representatives from the City of Seattle, Seattle Parks & Recreation, and tenants of the space. Mayor McGinn officiated the ribbon cutting. The opening included tours of the renovated facility, live music, and performances from local theater groups and the One World Roller Derby Club.
After years of extensive planning, community and tenant input, and design upgrades, the building is now ready for returning tenants EarthCorps, Thistle Theatre, PlantAmnesty, Washington Native Plant Society, Bats Northwest and the many artists that resided in the facility prior to the renovation. The arts wing includes a historically refurbished event space, and the hangar will serve as a large event space.
Stemper AC led the $8.4 million project renovation of this historic building.
