The R.D. Merrill Company, an old Seattle lumber and real estate firm (dating to the 1890s), sought historic certification for four of its properties in Pioneer Square in 1983: the Schwabacher Hardware Company Building (1903-1905), Seller Building (1906), Hambach Building #4 (1913) and Schwabacher Warehouse Annex (1909), to obtain tax benefits. In 1985, it conglomerated these four buildings into one, calling the new development, "Merrill Place." Olson/Walker and NBBJ Architects supervised this rehabilitation process.
