Chrysler Building

900 E. Pine Street

1925

The Washburn-Haines Company built this structure to showcase their preeminent Chrysler auto dealership, so special that Walter Chrysler himself came out for the opening on November 29, 1925. This building continued to house automobile sales and service until February 1989, when it was sold by the Rahe family to Hunters Capital. The building’s wood construction, unique terracotta façade, and iconic arched wooden windows create a strong street presence at the busy intersection of Broadway and Pine.

Renovation

Fall 2009

By the later 2000’s, the Chrysler Building needed updating to meet Hunters Capital’s vision of mixed-use retail and office space. The restoration began in the fall of 2009. It included work on all exterior surfaces: the terracotta brick along the east façade, stucco along the south and west façade, wood paneling, and wood framed windows. Later tenant build-outs resulted in modern office and retail space across the entire building, including a rooftop deck with commanding views of central Seattle.
