Above is the cover taken at Elliott Bay Bookstore for this month’s Preservation magazine. If you’ve never heard of this publication and you are into architecture or historical sites, then you are missing out. The writers do a fantastic job, and it really is top notch journalism. I’m definitely a fan of their content and feel lucky to get to contribute to an editorial with such substance.
This story revolved around the Pike + Pine area of Capitol Hill Seattle. For those of you not from the NW or those not familiar with Seattle, Capitol Hill is the neighborhood where most big things go down in Seattle. Top designers, motion studios, amazing eateries, and high end retailers fill the blocks that make up the neighborhood. Mr. Malone, photographed above, is the man who owns and runs most of the buildings in the Pike+Pine area. He’s got loads of passion when it comes to bringing in quality tenants who bring something different to the table. He also does a good job of keeping the historical buildings in tact. With so much hype over green building these days, Malone believes that the greenest buildings are the ones restored and rehabbed.

Anne Michelson owns and runs Crescent Down Works (a clothing business) out of an old building she’s restored. She also owns the new Kundig Condo building which I recommend checking out if you like his work. More images ran in the article, so pick it up and check it out.
