Swedish Health Services, Inc. Key Developments
Swedish Transplant Group Moves to Renovated Building on Seattle's Pill Hill
Dec 10 14
Swedish Health Services has leased 24,000 square feet of space in a Seattle medical-office building that is being renovated. A joint venture of real estate companies Trammell Crow and Washington Capital Management (WCM) announced the deal, saying that Swedish is moving its transplant group to the sixth floor of the newly named First Hill Medical Pavilion next spring. Swedish signed a long-term lease, but exact terms were not released. The project is now 44% leased. The transplant group is moving from the Swedish medical tower at 1101 Madison St., where the group is spread out over three floors. In addition, the relocation will allow the group to add a research lab. Trammell and WCM paid $42.6 million in early 2013 for what was called the Seattle Life Sciences Building, which occupies the full block between Boren and Minor avenues and Columbia and Marion streets. Some nearby surface parking lots were also included in the purchase. The new owners are under way on a significant renovation of the building that includes a six-story, 60,000 square-foot expansion on top of a new 415-stall underground parking garage. Architecture firm CollinsWoerman designed the project, and Lease Crutcher Lewis is the general contractor. Commercial real estate brokers Bob Mooney and Hans Kemp of Flinn Ferguson Corporate Real Estate negotiated the lease for Swedish with the landlords' representatives, Paul Carr, Steve Perovich and Marcus Yamamoto of CBRE.
