Located just northwest of the Seattle CBD Ballard is a hip waterfront neighborhood with trendy restaurants, indie shops, bars and craft breweries centered on historic Ballard Avenue. Not until recently has Class A office product inhabited the area.

The new four story Tommer Building at 5101 14th Ave NW is perfect for creative tech office users with 17,967 SF of space available delivering in Q4 2019. The building offers an impressive timber brick and beam design with flexible open floor plates.

There is plenty of bike storage, on-site parking, and the project is centrally located to all major transit hubs.

The breakdown of available space is as follows:

FLOOR 4 2,870 SF

FLOOR 3 7,430 SF

FLOOR 2 7,430 SF


This project offers a great opportunity to work in one of the city’s most storied and sought after neighborhoods in all of Seattle.


Ballard’s prosperity first came from the timber and cedar mills located along the ship canal that leads to Lake Union. Today the neighborhood is known for the old Seattle Scandinavian + maritime culture and its mix of award-winning northwestern breweries, coffee shops, and restaurants.

Next door to 10 breweries and taprooms, some of Seattle’s classic quick breakfast stops, Trader Joe’s, Amazon Fresh, New Seasons Market, and a host of retail and fitness options just a few blocks away on Market Street. Lastly, benefit from the Burke Gilman Missing Link trail connection and the future RapidRide Ballard Fremont bus line and light rail station.
