Whether you’re looking for a festive light show or a cozy spot to relax and unwind, there’s something for everyone in the Emerald City. Take a stroll through the Olympic Sculpture Park, enjoy a hot cup of coffee, or head to the Space Needle to get a unique view of the city’s winter wonderland.
As winter progresses, the city’s iconic Space Needle is transformed into a festive, holiday-themed light show. Our Third and Broad & Fourth and Vine buildings are just minutes away, so you can enjoy all of the holiday magic as you make your way home from a day of work in the city.
If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, Seattle has plenty of great spots to cozy up and unwind. Check out the city’s many coffee shops and cafes for a hot cup of joe or a delicious latte. Make a stop at Herkimer Coffee, located at our 4th & Blanchard building, and enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the shop and the enticing aroma of freshly brewed coffee while you wait for your latte. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, stop by Mighty O’ Donuts at our 1000 2nd Ave building on your way to do some holiday shopping at Pike Place Market .
Once you’ve got your latte and donut in hand, enjoy a wintery stroll through the Olympic Sculpture Park. This outdoor park is only a 15-minute walk away from our 2118 Third Avenue building and features a variety of sculptures from local and international artists. Plus, the park provides stunning views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
