CLARK | BARNES Wins 2017 NAIOP Award for The Publix + Warehouse!

Staff, Awards

On Friday, November 3rd, we were honored to be the recipient of the 2017 NAIOP Award for Redevelopment/Renovation of the Year for The Publix. Congratulations to all the other creative, sustainable and innovative projects highlighted this year and thank you to NAIOP Washington State Chapter for hosting such an amazing event.


Located within both Seattle’s International Special Review District and the National Register Chinatown Historic District, the Publix Hotel was constructed in 1928 as a rooming house for workers employed at Rainier Heat & Power Company. CLARK | BARNES provided architectural, historic preservation and interior design services for the renovation of this historic hotel building, as well as a new, complementary addition.

The entire Publix redevelopment project contains 125 market-rate apartments, with 12,000 sq ft of ground floor retail and 28 parking stalls. A valuable piece of the historic district, its rehabilitation is critical to the revitalization of the neighborhood.

CLARK | BARNES submitted a Historic Preservation Tax Credit Application to the Washington State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service. In addition, an application was submitted for the King County Special Property Tax Valuation, freezing the property tax at its pre-renovation rate.

The project team that included W. Scott Clark, John Bartin, and Adam Alsobrook were in attendance and we are so proud of the team for their tireless work on this project!
