About 400 Fairview
400 Fairview is Skanska’s second office development in Seattle. The building is the headquarters of Tommy Bahama, Impinj, Car Toy’s/Wireless Advocates, and is also local headquarters to Stantec. Skanska recapitalized 400 Fairview in December 2015, and the building is now operated by majority owner TIAA.
Designed to capture the spirit and energy of an open-air market, the curated 400 Fairview market hall experience features food, drinks and more from Caffe Ladro, Meat & Bread, Juicy Café, Bar Harbor, Verde & Co, and will soon become home to the first Kai Market concept by Uwajimaya. 400 Fairview also just recently welcomed Mbar, a contemporary rooftop bar and restaurant offering unobstructed views of Lake Union.
