Originally built between 1917 and 1925 as a warehouse and manufacturing facility for the American Can Corporation. In 1976 the building was renovated and converted to an apparel mart. An owner-managed extensive $16 million renovation was completed in 1999 converting the textile manufacture space to offices for a high-tech user that included seismic upgrades, replacement of mechanical and electrical systems, installation of new elevator systems and the creation of common areas for the office floors. Tenants included the Art Institute of Seattle and initial headquarters for RealNetworks, Inc.
