As it ploughs millions of dollars into this stretch of E Pike, Capitol Hill developer Hunters Capital seems to be making rapid headway on attracting new tenants for its investments. The real estate developer this week announced that “destination furniture store and interior boutique” Great Jones Home will round out the tenant mix in its recently acquired and in-process of being rehabilitated Greenus Building the former home of Brocklind’s Costume Shop and, soon to be former home of  Theater Schmeater. An announcement on the new tenant from Hunters is below.

Great Jones joins transplanted Edie’s Shoes — itself a refugee from the Melrose and Pine development, continuing tenant 8 Limbs Yoga, offices for tech marketing concern Add3 and a new ‘Roman-style trattoria’ from Havana helmsman Quentin Ertel to round out the Greenus Building project’s tenant roster. Along with 8 Limbs, Edie’s is already doing business in the Greenus and is planning a September re-opening party, according to the Great Jones announcement. The restaurant space was reportedly last slated for a mid-winter debut.

Hunters Capital is excited to announce that Great Jones Home, a destination furniture store and interior boutique, will be moving to the historic Greenus Building at the corner of East Pike Street and Summit Avenue on Capitol Hill. Great Jones Home – which is independently owned and known for its fine products and boutique setting – will round out the building’s other retail and commercial tenants including Edie’s Shoes, 8 Limbs Yoga, Add3 online marketing and a restaurant slated for roughly 4,000 square feet of space.

8 Limbs Yoga and Edie’s Shoes are both open for business, and Edie’s has just announced a grand opening party for Thursday, September 12.  The event will be in shop from 5 to 8 p.m. during the Capitol Hill Art Walk, and will include goody bags a make-your-own Maguba Clog event with guest vendors and artists.

Hunters Capital has been busy refurbishing the 88-year-old Greenus Building, which housed Brocklind’s formal wear and costume shop until recently. The restaurant space is currently under construction and will house a Roman-style trattoria and bar from Quentin Ertel, owner of The Saint and Havana.

In redeveloping the Greenus Building, and through all its projects, Hunters Capital is working to preserve the character of Capitol Hill by creating a mix of commercial, retail and restaurant tenants at its properties and providing spaces for small, locally owned companies.

  1. Great Jones will be a great addition to the neighborhood. Beautiful store. Great fabrics. Cool furniture and sexy accessories for the home. No, I wasn’t paid for this.

  4. a bit of building history:
    in 1986, Seal Press and The Real Comet Press moved into the full first floor of the Greenus Building, thanks to Metro relocating Seal Press out of Pioneer Square for the Bus Tunnel work. A year later, Metro moved us both to the Northwest Industrial Buildings at the bottom of Denny because Metro sold the building to Brocklinds as part of relocating them to build the Paramount Station for the Bus Tunnel. I remember streetwalkers in the early evening out in front of CK Graphics. Very different days on East Pike.

  5. I’m glad to see a quality home furnishing store on the hill. Which means some will be upset that EVERYBODY in the neighborhood can’t afford it.

  6. I walked by the building on the first or second day of power-washing the green paint off, and the yellow brick and concrete adornments (ornaments?) made me wonder who had painted the thing in the first place.
