Seattle University 1313 East Columbia

2009

The 1313 East Columbia building has seen several uses in its history. Built in 1936 in the Art-Deco style, it originally served as a Coca-Cola bottling plant. The University purchased the building so it could be used as a temporary academic library and later as a main hub for its facility administration. A full seismic upgrade of the existing concrete facility was completed as well as modifications to framing that allowed desired program modifications and the support of new mechanical equipment.
