For the past year we have called Seattle’s Impact Hub our home. Smart Buildings Center loved being a part of The Impact Hub’s community and we will surely miss Pioneer Square, but it’s time to say goodbye.
We have started work on our new space inside the historic Pacific Tower and hope to move in nearing the beginning of 2016. Many of you have seen this iconic Art Deco building on top of Beacon Hill. It’s been previously known as the old Amazon Headquarters, the Pacific Medical Center, and that creepy building overlooking downtown Seattle. Putting aside all rumors of it being haunted (we’re not scared) Smart Buildings Center couldn’t be more excited!
With the design help of SSL, McKinstry, and their subcontractors our space will be ready to support a wide variety of activities and events. We’re aiming to have several state of the art event spaces and conference rooms (which will be available to the building efficiency community) as well as office spaces, and of course room for our new Tool Lending Library! We are really looking forward to all the natural light our new space has; did we mention the views of the city?
We have already begun the demolition process, in fact you can see the imprint of the old Amazon set up. We look forward to bringing you more updates as we progress.
