Renovations to a century-old hotel building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood while fully occupied
The Frye Apartments project consisted of more than $30 million in renovations to a century-old hotel building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood while fully occupied during construction. The historic building was built in 1908 as a luxury hotel and converted to 234 apartments in the 1970s. With 11-stories above grade plus 2 basement levels, the building required major overhauls of the plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems as well as considerable restoration efforts on the exterior of the building that included seismic reinforcement, exterior masonry cleaning and repair or replacement of historic windows The WALSH team coordinated extensively with LIHI staff to organize and implement a multi-phase tenant relocation process that necessitated the work to replace the buildings plumbing to be done in vertical stacks.
