Metropole Building Seattle, Washington

In 2015, BOLA Architecture + Planning developed a historic report for the Metropole Building.  Located at 2nd Avenue and Yesler Way in Seattleā€™s Pioneer Square National Historic District, the ca. 1892 building is a contributing structure in the district.  Extensively damaged by fire in 2007 and left vacant, it was acquired by a development team with plans to rehabilitate the building into a boutique hotel, with restaurant and retail space.  The initial historic report included relevant information on the history and redevelopment of Pioneer Square, and character-defining features, current conditions, changes over time, and previous occupants of the building, and served as a guide for the design architects.  BOLA is providing rehabilitation design reviews, masonry restoration expertise and development of the Historic Preservation Certification Application (HPCA) for federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.
