If you find yourself walking down 1st Ave, you might end up coming across a building that`s over a century old! Constructed in 1910, the Seattle Ice Company`s "new" plant cost $250,000 to build, which would be over $8 million today! Before Porch Group moved in, this building was also home to Budget Office Furniture and a few Starbucks offices.

Did you know that Starbucks Center was originally constructed by Sears to fulfill their catalog and was the oldest-operating Sears store? Today it stands as the largest multi-tenant building in Seattle and the headquarters of our beloved Starbucks!

Happy Anniversary to US! Ten years ago, the SODO BIA was established and revived the area with services and amenities to help optimize business success.

Our success hinges on our hard-working team, steadfast leadership from executive director Erin Goodman and our Ratepayer Advisory Board, and the feedback we get from over 1,200 businesses that make up SODO. Thank you all for making SODO a better place to work, play, and thrive!

And special thanks to @_particlestudio for producing this amazing video and highlighting all the amazing work we`ve done in the past decade!

Did you know that Smith Tower was the tallest building on the West Coast until 1962? At nearly 500 feet, photographers had a clear view of our beloved SODO and could get excellent shots like this one!

Think the Seattle freeze isn`t real? Think again! SODO`s very own Lady Rainier has relocated multiple times over the years but in 1912 she was quite literally stuck in place.

Have any historical photos of your own? Send them to us and they might get featured!
