Building History

Charles Bassett (1921-1999) of Skidmore Owings and Merrill's (SOM) San Francisco office was the Partner-in-Charge of this project; the original architect was Gordon Bunshaft (1909-1990) of SOM's New York office, but George H. Weyerhaeuser, Sr., (b. 1926) decided to offer the commission to a Western architect;

Five-story tall office building; the building received the 2001 American Institute of Architects' Twenty-five Year Award; in 1977, the construction of this building consolidated the locations of 22 offices in Tacoma, WA; the building contained 360,000 square feet; a new office system manufactured by Knoll, the Stephens Office System, was designed originally for this building. Tel: 253.838.4646 (2007). Weyerhaeuser went through significant restructuring in 2008, resulting in the closure of some offices in Federal Way, WA, and the relocation of some workers in the city.
