SEATTLE – November 15, 2017 – Greenbridge Investment Partners, a full-service commercial real-estate development company based in Beverly Hills, Calif., announced today the completion of an extensive renovation of Georgetown Squared (G2), a collaborative office space in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. The revival of this five-story Class A office building has attracted a large number of local companies; taking G2 to over 76 percent occupancy.
Following its transformation, the building, originally built as showroom in 1983 as part of the Seattle Design Center, is now a light-filled, dynamic and modern workspace. The meticulous renovation includes new floor to ceiling windows, bringing natural light and panoramic views of the Seattle skyline to the north and Mt. Rainier to the south, into each space. A new exterior monument sign, refreshed concrete and tile flooring, new and refurbished elevators and atrium seating are among the many restoration elements Greenbridge has implemented. First-in-class onsite amenities for tenants include a state-of-the-art gym, contemporary conference center, secure parking on-site and new restaurant concepts slated for 2018.
“Creating a space that addresses our tenants’ existing needs while anticipating future growth was our top priority during the renovation,” said Fareed Kanani, Principal of Greenbridge Investment Partners, which purchased the building in 2014. “We brought the building to life by designing areas that will act as catalysts to the innovation and success of our tenants, while providing ample amenities to enhance the workplace experience.”
The expanding portfolio of companies calling G2 home is a result of beautiful spaces and suite-to-suite synergy inspired by the physical embodiment of the building’s new aesthetic. Much like G2, the building’s tenants are advancing their industries and curating environments for intellectual talent to work outside the lines.
Current tenants include Iridio Studios, Builders Capital, Andersen Construction, Archbright, Darigold, Girl Scouts of Western Washington, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Netfortris. The American Lunch Association will move into G2 in the fall of 2017. Many of the companies, such as the Girl Scouts of Western Washington, relocated to G2 to better meet their employee and brand considerations.
“G2’s location met our list of essentials for accessibility, ample parking and proximity to members, along with the ‘cool’ factor to inspire our membership and staff teams,” said Elaine Morse, Chief Financial & Administration Officer at Girls Scouts of Western Washington. “The building itself captured our imagination. The natural light brightens our entire office, while the beautiful atrium extends our suite like a comfortable patio with Zen gardens.”
Located next door to the Seattle Design Center, also owned by Greenbridge, G2 offers a wholly unique office space in close proximity to Seattle’s downtown core. Approximately 67,000 square feet of G2 is still available to rent, in contiguous spaces ranging from as large as 20,000 to 3,500 square feet.
