Saltchuk Signs Lease at Hudson Pacific Properties’ 450 Alaskan Way in Pioneer Square

Eight-Story Office Tower Is Now 55% Pre-Leased

LOS ANGELES–Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (NYSE: HPP) today announced that Saltchuk Resources, Inc. will lease a significant portion of the 450 Alaskan Way office tower in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.

Saltchuk, a family of transportation and distribution companies, and one of the largest privately held companies based in Washington, will occupy 91,357 square feet at the $93 million office development. Saltchuk currently offices in Seattle’s Lake Union neighborhood, and chose to move to 450 Alaskan Way in part because the facility can accommodate its longer-term growth.

“We’re pleased to welcome Saltchuk to 450 Alaskan Way, our newest development in Seattle,” said Victor Coleman, Chairman and CEO of Hudson Pacific Properties. “We designed this state-of-the-art, sustainable building with premier companies like Saltchuk in mind, knowing they would be drawn to Pioneer Square, one of Seattle’s most culturally vibrant, live, work, play neighborhoods. The building’s design received unanimous support from the Pioneer Square Preservation Board in October and again in December of last year. 450 Alaskan Way will be a great addition to the Pioneer Square community and, after much input from local stakeholders, addresses both the neighborhood’s existing architecture and scale.”

450 Alaskan Way is an eight-story, 167,000-square-foot office tower designed by NBBJ. The Class A building will be LEED Gold certified, with large floorplates, a rooftop amenity center and deck, and cutting-edge systems. Tenants can take advantage of Pioneer Square’s ample amenities and exceptional transit accessibility and walkability.

Hudson Pacific has commenced demolition of the site’s existing parking structure and anticipates completing the new building in the fourth quarter of 2017.

In Pioneer Square immediately adjacent to the project, Hudson Pacific owns six other buildings totaling 665,376 square feet, collectively known as King Street Crossing. David Abbott and Laura Ford of Colliers International serve as brokers for both 450 Alaskan Way and King Street Crossing.
