Their challenge

When CenturyLink leadership decided that owning the 32-story 1600 Seventh office tower in Seattle, Washington, no longer fit their business plan, they negotiated with Urban Renaissance Group (URG) and Clarion Capital Partners to sell the property and transition into a leasing agreement for existing CenturyLink offices in the high-rise. This transaction led to the consolidation of 32 floors of CenturyLink offices down to just 15 floors—all within a tight deadline.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien provided systems, furniture, and space planning for all impacted floors, redistributing all of the client’s employee and accessory spaces. This process included the selection of new carpet, paint, and casework. Our team also made alterations to electrical, mechanical, and security systems to allow for the addition of another tenant to the high-rise.
