“Plans have been brewing for two-plus years for a renovation and addition to the Baker Linen Building, at 1101 E. Pike St. on Capitol Hill’s. The ownership, led by Dunn & Hobbes, bought the building back in 2014, then later had the century-old, three-story structure landmarked. It’s a handsome remnant of that neighborhood’s old Auto Row.”

“The Seattle Mariners unveiled plans this week for a new baseball and softball training facility, and 9,500-square-foot events venue, at the old Pyramid Brewery space located across from T-Mobile Park at 1201 First Ave. S. The M’s signed a long-term lease for the approximately 24,500-square-foot former warehouse building in October 2021 and last summer opened up Steelheads Alley brewpub and the Hatback Bar and Grille restaurant there, as well as a connected outdoor beer garden.”

“The community is co-developed by The Rush Companies and Pillar Properties, which is senior housing specialist Merrill Gardens’ development arm. The 169,165-square-foot, seven-story building can house 159 residents. Units are a mix of studios, one- and two- bedrooms for independent and assisted-living residents, with 18 units for those requiring memory care.”

“A series of upgrades and repairs are currently being proposed for the internal courtyard that would extend the useful life expectancy of the space for another 20-25 years and make it more ADA accessible. In addition, a plan to transform the courtyard “into an urban ecosystem that integrates water, native plants, and animals,” is being floated. Current dinosaur statues would be removed and a lush green meadow planted in their place.”
