OddFellows Building Filling Up Fast: Four More Businesses Open Doors in Historic Spaces and Join Pike/Pine Neighborhood

Children's Clothier flora and henri, and Socially-Conscious Mercantile Nube Green Opening This Fall

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - Seattle's famed OddFellows Building (www.oddfellowsbuilding.com), located at 915 East Pine Street in Capitol Hill's Pike Pine Triangle Neighborhood (www.pikepinetriangle.com), is welcoming four new businesses to its recently restored historic-meets-modern spaces. The new tenants will add to the building's creative vibe, and include: established Seattle children's and fancier retailer flora and henri; a new environmental-focused mercantile known as Nube Green; hydration tablet creator nuun; and Smith-Harmon internet marketing firm.

"From the beginning, we have always hoped OddFellows would continue as a community asset full of creative retailers and entities that suit the neighborhood's eclectic vibe," said Ted Schroth, head of OddFellows LLC, which purchased the 100-year-old building and began renovating it in early 2008. "With our spaces nearly full now, you walk through the building and get a real sense of community. OddFellows is a gathering place where you can work and play all in the same spot -- it's a mix of shopping, dining, relaxing and office spaces all in one, set to a raw historic backdrop that's been modernized."

Opening in October at 919 East Pine, right beside Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream shop, will be Seattle-based flora and henri. The high-end retailer, with boutiques in Seattle and New York, designs and manufactures globally sought after children's clothing. Its new 800 square foot space will be filled with flora and henri's children's merchandise as well as a collection of exquisite gift items from rare labels that are suitable for shoppers of all ages.

Also on the ground floor -- sandwiched between the popular OddFellows Café and Molly Moon's, and right next to flora and henri -- Nube Green plans to open the doors on its 2,300 square foot mercantile store in November. This retailer will carry a broad array of simple, fun and elegant gifts for the ecologically minded consumer. The store will only sell products that have not crossed any oceans, including locally made items from recycled and sustainable materials. Nube Green will also carry its own line of products.

"Nube Green chose the OddFellows Building because of the like-minded energy of both the customers and tenants in the building, as well as the neighborhood," said owner Ruth True. "Whether huddling for a beer in the café, hitting up neighborhood coffee shops, or just people watching, OddFellows is in the hub of all the action."

The two new upstairs office space tenants, nuun and Smith-Harmon, will occupy the fourth (top) floor of the building. nuun has already moved its 13 employees into its edgy new 2,750 square foot office space, where they focus on hydration tablets loved by athletes and everyday health-conscious people alike. Beginning November 1, Smith-Harmon marketing firm will relocate to its new 6,200 square foot OddFellows headquarters. The firm provides premier email marketing strategies to leading Fortune 500 brands.

With the new tenants taking residence, OddFellows now plays home to numerous companies, including Seattle's much-loved Century Ballroom, the Velocity Dance Center, Two9 Design, Pevoto Architects and the Seattle Running Company -- several of which have remained at OddFellows after the building's purchase by OddFellows LLC last year.

Only four unoccupied spaces remain available for lease in OddFellows, including:

--  First floor: 1,772 retail square feet, with 16-foot ceilings, adjacent
    to the Seattle Running Company
    
--  Second floor: a unique 2,643 square foot open space with 25-foot
    ceilings, located directly above OddFellows Café
    
--  Third Floor: 2,381 square feet with pristine arched windows and a view
    of Cal Anderson park, situated directly above the popular Tin Table
    restaurant
    
--  Fourth Floor: 6,099 square feet (divisible into four spaces of
    approximately 1,500 square feet each), complete with skylights, exposed
    steel trusses and more industrial features
