barrientos RYAN was hired to provide feasibility analyses and a development plan for the renovation of this historic building, situated on a bluff next to Interstate 90 in Seattle’s Central District. The building had been abandoned for 25 years and barrientos RYAN worked with the Urban League to purchase the building from the Seattle School District. The Urban League’s goal was to renovate old classrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors into workforce housing and to develop a new African American Museum on the first floor.
HRG was been brought on to develop the housing and barrientos RYAN served as the owner’s representative, as well as manager of the development of the museum portion of this space.
