 1815 N 45th St

Retail/apartment · 50,000 sqft · renovated 1985/2007 · 3 floors

Formally known as the historic Interlake Elementary Schoolhouse, Wallingford Center was renovated into a retail and residential center reflecting the eclectic character of the Wallingford neighborhood. Restoration of a building on the National Register of Historic Places as well as a City of Seattle landmark presented many development challenges which included designing efficient pedestrian flow to achieve thriving retail spaces and working with the Seattle School District to create a long-term ground lease.

The Center consists of over 30,000 square feet of retail space and a third level of 26 residential units.  Wallingford Center has become a local shopping institution and community gathering place. In a continuously evolving retail environment the project continues to remain leased with Pharmaca, Chutney’s Bistro, Tweedy and Pop, Trophy Cupcakes, Yazdi and Exploration Academy.

Located at the intersection of Seattle’s Belltown and Pike Place Market neighborhoods, the First & Lenora Building is a 36,800 square foot mixed use building comprised of two floors of office space and ground floor retail.  Originally constructed as a livery and horse stable around the turn of the century, the building had undergone a renovation in the late 1970’s which was typical for that period.

Following its acquisition by Teutsch Partners in 1997, this formerly Class B structure was fully renovated into a beautiful boutique office facility with dynamic retail spaces.  Teutsch Partners revived the integrity and charm of the original brick structure while incorporating a clean and contemporary design.  The retail storefronts were expanded using architectural steel and full height glazing, accentuating natural illumination and adding to the building’s street appeal.  The main lobby and three story atrium were retrofit in a complimentary manner, creating public spaces unique to the area.

Brighton Jones Wealth Management, the largest wealth management firm in the Pacific Northwest purchased First and Lenora for it headquarter in 2012.
