Built in 1900, the Furuya Building, along with the Corgiat Building, was home to Snoqualmie Falls Power Company. It also got its name from tenant M. Furuya Co., a Japanese import/export store. Much has changed since then, thanks to a 1949 earthquake as well as general wear and tear, but things are apparently on the up and up. HAL Real Estate Investments has loaned money to help refurbish the property, the first time they've done so in Pioneer Square. Per PSBJ, it's a big vote of confidence, not only in the property's future, but also the neighborhoods.
