The Pioneer Collective Signs 15-Year Lease at Tommer Building

Coworking and meeting space company, The Pioneer Collective, has signed a 15-year lease on 14,000 square feet at the Tommer Building in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Kidder Mathews’ James Yalowitz represented the tenant in the transaction. The landlord is Seattle developer Kamin Built.

Coworking spaces are becoming a popular office alternative post-pandemic. The Pioneer Collective offers meeting rooms, private offices, event space rentals and mail processing services. The Tommer Building location on 14th Avenue NW will be the firm’s third location in the Puget Sound area, with other hubs in the Belltown neighborhood and Tacoma.

“Office users are shifting away from the downtown core and are placing hybrid teams and remote employees closer to residential neighborhoods with attractive retail, food and beverage options. Ballard checked all those boxes, while also serving a dense area, being transit-accessible and walkable,” said The Pioneer Collective Co-founder Chris Hoyt.
