J&M Hotel

Home to “Seattle’s Oldest Bar,” the J&M Hotel was built just after the Great Fire of 1889. This complete renovation of the original building in Pioneer Square creates a 25-room boutique hotel, a bar/restaurant, and a new music venue. The design includes a seismic retrofit, new building systems, façade restoration, and interior design. A historic annex that is dilapidated and in danger of collapse is being carefully deconstructed and rebuilt with a new foundation and structural system.

The project design complies with the requirements of the Pioneer Square Preservation Board and the National Park Service Certified Rehabilitation program. Construction starts in fall 2016.
