Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: My name is Laura Hanan and I am an artist and I live and work in my family's 100-year-old historic building with my husband Marty, who is also an artist. Ron Patterson one of our returning guests (& his wife Charnley) generously married us the summer of 2009!
My family completely renovated our mixed-use building and built two beautiful identical high-end condos featuring custom cherry wood cabinetry, original brick walls, and refinished 100-year-old Doug Fir wood floors. Our original art is throughout the building and we have our studios and a frame shop located in the basement.
We welcome our guests to tour our sometimes messy studios. We also invite visitors to play in our studios and create some art of their own with our help if they want.
Why the Owner Chose Tacoma: We found this beautiful old building - a dusty gem - in the heart of downtown Tacoma, the Theater District. We saw the raw potential of the area and since purchasing and remodeling our building we are in the center of a lovely new restaurant row, including a lively bar and grill 'The Office' downstairs in our building. We are proud that our building is also on the local register of historic buildings.
A new Pacific Northwest heavy-hitter anchor tenant, McMenamins is being built less than two blocks away from our building and will feature a music venue, theatrical events, and a brew pub in the grand old historic Elks Building.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love to pamper our guests with condos that are furnished tastefully and include all original artwork. A complimentary bottle of wine, pound of fresh coffee, and chocolates await our visitors. We live on site available to help out with restaurant suggestions and information about the wonderful local events and places to visit in beautiful Washington state.
