On the Block: RailSpur project ramps up with new hospitality partner

Owner Manchester Capital Management and developer Urban Villages are about one year into renovating the first of three historic buildings at RailSpur, the adaptive mixed-use project in Pioneer Square.

A crane and crews from Chinn Construction were busy at the Manufacturer’s Building, aka the former F.X. McRory’s building, before the state temporarily halted most construction last week in response to the pandemic. The building will become offices over a food hall.

Next door at 100 S. King St., aka the Westland Building, the planned conversion from offices to a boutique hotel now appears to be gathering steam. Newly attached to the project is Miller Hull, which recently filed a slightly updated plan with the city. SHED Architecture & Design has thus far been the architect for the entire project. SHED says it’s still working on the project.
