Here are the MacDonald-Miller project winners and finalists from NAIOP:

Hospitality Development of the Year (WINNER):

Hyatt Regency Seattle

The Hyatt Regency Seattle is a full-service hotel and meetings venue managed by Hyatt Hotels composed of 1,260 rooms, and numerous amenities including 103,000 SF of ballroom, meeting space and restaurants.The design synthesizes a variety of urban influences and scales into a mixed-use architectural collage inspired by its position at the intersection of Seattle’s primary commercial and high-rise residential neighborhood adjacent to the new Washington State Convention Center Expansion.


Historic Renovation of the Year (Nominee):

Pantages Theater Historic Restoration

Korsmo Construction teamed with BCRA to design and build the restoration of the historic Pantages Theater for Tacoma Arts Live. The project included inherent challenges to preserve the integrity and craftmanship of the 100-year-old theater while preparing it for 100 more years of public use. The project restored the theater’s beautifully intricate and elaborate vaudeville-era interior, including all new finishes, plaster repairs, safety and ADA-compliance upgrades, new LED lighting, seating, sound, and acoustical improvements.

Historic Renovation of the Year (Nominee):

Town Hall Seattle

This historic building first opened in 1916 as the Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist. TownHall Seattle purchased the building in 1998, converted it to an affordable performance home for the region’s small to mid-sized arts & civic organizations. TownHall Seattle has seen more people pass through the doors in their first 18 years than in the previous 84 combined, pushing the building’s century-old infrastructure to its limit and necessitating a complete renovation of the building.


Office Interior of the Year (Nominee):

Big Fish Games Seattle Headquarters:

Interior Architects and Abbott Construction partnered with Big Fish Games through an intensely collaborative process that touched every aspect of the project from building selection and renovation to artwork and furniture. Creating a highly functional and expressive headquarters reflective of its Seattle roots, the result personifies the Big Fish brand, complements the Big Fish staff, and supports culture, creativity, workstyle, and productivity.
