Pike Motorworks offers a high-quality, luxury apartment building with a unique, historic aesthetic to the Pike/Pine district of Capitol Hill. Two buildings, at a total of 15,000 sf, make up this nearly full-block project. A pedestrian corridor runs between and opens up to form a grand, open-air courtyard plaza at the core of the block.
Retail frontage totals more than 1,200 linear feet. A collection of eateries, bars, and shops will be housed in the original BMW showroom, the facade of which has been maintained to celebrate the auto-row era roots of the building. This character structure informs the aesthetic throughout the building, harkening back to an era when attention to detail was the norm.
Floor-to-ceiling windows draw ample daylight into interior spaces, and spacious floor plans with reclaimed timber details can be found throughout. Amenities and common areas include the use of bold super graphics and historic-inspired materials to create a palette best described as modern grunge. Strategically placed neon signs flash cheeky song lyrics, and bold, modern artwork completes the finish package meant to appeal to young professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, and other urban dwellers looking for someplace a little bit different to call home.
