There is nothing ordinary about the origins of 200 Occidental.
Urban Visions, a developer with deep roots in Pioneer Square, conceived the project with an equal focus on sustainability and the bottom line. With a fantastic location flanking Seattle’s historic Occidental Park, the structure would be the missing piece completing the park’s ring of graceful buildings.
It was envisioned to last a hundred years, to fit within its historic context yet to be true to its times, and to lead by example in the renewal of the Pioneer Square neighborhood.
With these aspirations, 200 Occidental came to fruition when Weyerhaeuser chose to lease this building for its new world headquarters.
The 213,000-square-foot structure is quickly taking shape now that its frame is completed. It’s being clad in glass and brick, and large parts of the frame will remain visible through an expansive curtain wall facing the park.
