Greenbridge Inks Four New Leases at Design Center

Greenbridge Investment Partners recently inked four new leases at the Seattle Design Center, a home furnishings marketplace. These type of leases for Resource Furniture, Plasteel Frames, Perennials and Sutherland, and the Atrium Café, were thought to be impossible particularly given COVID.

Greenbridge originally purchased the design center in 2014. The firm also acquired an adjacent property, SDC South, and many surrounding parking lots to meet demand.

“We have completely transformed the property by taking the bones of what was then and transforming it into an amazing vibrant complex,” said Sean Hashem, principal at Greenbridge, the company that owns the Seattle Design Center. “Today, it has become an end destination for those seeking fine furniture and in fact, many of the tenants have clients flying in to visit. Given all the challenges we’ve overcome, it’s definitely a heart-filled commitment from myself and my team, and we’re thrilled to see it succeed at this level.”   

Greenbridge not only rescued a city jewel, which had its occupancy dwindle from its original 60 showrooms down to 21, but returned it to its pedestal within the local community.
