RailSpur redevelopment to begin in Pioneer Square

The three-building project will be completed in phases, with the first part set to finish in 2020.

Construction fencing has gone up around the Manufacturer’s Building, at 419 Occidental Ave. S., one of three old Pioneer Square buildings that comprise the phased RailSpur redevelopment. Manchester Capital Management of Vermont is the owner.

Developer Urban Villages has its permits for 419 Occidental, once home to F.X. McRory’s, which will not return to the building after renovations. The offices above now appear to be vacant.

The seven-story building will receive a full makeover including seismic and structural work, a new roof deck, and a glass-enclosed staircase in the north alley. The size will only increase by about 2 percent, to 96,800 gross square feet. The project is targeting LEED platinum certification.
