The Pioneer Collective, a Seattle-based independent coworking and meeting space company, has completed a 15-year lease on 14,000 square feet at the Tommer Building in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Kidder Mathews commercial real estate broker James Yalowitz represented The Pioneer Collective in the lease. The landlord is Seattle developer Kamin Built.
The Tommer Building is located at 5101 14th Avenue NW. It is one of the only commercial office buildings in Ballard’s Brewery District and one of the more unique small office spaces in North Seattle. The four-story building was constructed in 2020 using eco-friendly timber. The lease marks The Pioneer Collective’s third location in the Puget Sound area. The company’s other workspace and meeting hubs are in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood and Tacoma.
Coworking spaces declined during COVID-19 shutdowns, but post-pandemic they offer a vital office alternative. The Pioneer Collective offers coworking spaces, meeting rooms, private offices, event space rentals, and mail processing services. Its clients include membership companies, though hourly or daily rentals are also available to the public to rent meeting rooms and training spaces.
“Office users are shifting away from the downtown core and are placing hybrid teams and remote employees closer to residential neighborhoods with attractive retail, food, and beverage options. Ballard checked all those boxes while also serving a dense area, being transit-accessible, and walkable,” said The Pioneer Collective Co-founder Chris Hoyt.
