This project was certainly the most public project ever undertaken by the company. Through a unique private/public partnership with Sound Transit, the historic train station has been renovated into an 110,000 square foot Class A office building that will serve as the headquarters for the regional transit agency. By the terms of the agreement, the development partnership assumed all construction risks and agreed to deliver the completed project for a maximum price no later than September 15, 1999. The partnership also agreed to donate the building shell to the agency, with Sound Transit reimbursing only the actual improvements costs, but not to exceed $20,716,081. The project was completed in August of 1999 at nearly $3.0 million below the original budget allowing the agency to re-invest the savings in various building upgrades needed to accommodate the new transit systems. In return for the risks it assumed, the development partnership was able to return a fully restored public gem back to the community for the next century.
