Iconic Harold Poll Building Trades Hands

The Harold Poll building at 110 Union St. in Seattle was sold by the Poll Family via Columbia Pacific Advisors to MSI Poll LLC, an affiliate of Martin Smith Inc. for reportedly nearly $33.5 million. The 60,343-square-foot CBD office building is located just steps from Pike Place Market.

Newmark’s Kevin Shannon, Nick Kucha, and Rachel Jones, in cooperation with Daniel Seger, represented the seller. The buyer was self-represented.

Shannon says, “Selling a building of this historic nature is rare in downtown Seattle today. We received interest from several domestic investors catalyzing a competitive bid-process. We were delighted to work with Martin Smith Inc. on behalf of the Poll Family, especially in light of their already significant, Seattle-owned, historic portfolio.”

Kucha added, “Harold Poll represents an iconic Seattle asset – built in 1910, its highly desirable location, proximity to Seattle’s waterfront transformation, historic character, and desirable floor plates make the opportunity truly one-of-a-kind.”
