Alaska Building – Marriott Hotel

  • Alaska Building / Marriott Hotel

Project details

Clark Design Group provided historic preservation consultation and architectural design services for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic 15-story, 165,000 square foot Alaska Building in Seattle, Washington. The renovation included an addition and change of use, as well as seismic and life safety upgrades.

Originally built in 1904 and located in the Pioneer Square Historic District, this building was home to the Alaska Club, a prominent commercial organization of entrepreneurs, and the Scandinavian-American Bank. Clark prepared successful presentations to the Pioneer Square Preservation Board for approval of the change of use, exterior storefront modifications, and an addition at the rear of the building. The Owner worked with a tax credit consultant and Clark designed all work to conform to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.

The project includes a Marriott managed hotel with 236 rooms, 26 residential units and 5,000 square feet of meeting facilities. The ground floor and basement contains the hotel lobby, restaurant and spa.

The project was the winner of the 2011 NAIOP Night of the Stars Hospitality Development of the Year.
