As our Publix + Warehouse project heads toward completion, we’re thrilled with the results. Owned by the Uwajimaya family, it is part of exciting new development happening in the International District. The project includes the renovated 1928 historic hotel, originally built as a single-room occupancy hotel for predominantly Asian workers. A new building was constructed on an adjacent warehouse site and is connected to the hotel building. With both handsomely renovated and contemporary living spaces, the Publix offers something for all design sensibilities. Mayor Ed Murray, along with other dignitaries and representatives from the project team celebrated the Grand Opening yesterday with festivities that included tours and a visit to the seventh floor roof deck. Check out this great article in the Daily Journal of Commerce for more about the project and what it means for the community.
