Located on the edge of the Pioneer Square Historic District and International District, the redeveloped Tashiro and Kaplan buildings provide a unique live-work space for local artists. A complete rehabilitation included envelope, seismic, life-safety, and systems upgrades as well as a three-story addition to the Kaplan building. The building not only provides living space for artists, it also houses multiple galleries, a 110-person community room, and 40,000 sq. ft. of commercial space, including a coffee shop and arts-related entities. The Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts has become a lively, creative community that is a hub for visual art and other cultural activities.
