HFF Secures $32.5M Acquisition Financing for Old Rainier Brewery Mixed-Use Campus in Seattle


REI, Patagonia, Keen, Elysian Brewing Co., Frans Chocolate and Kyoto Art and Antiques are tenants at the Original Rainier Brewery in Seattle’s historic Georgetown neighborhood.

SEATTLE — HFF has arranged $32.5 million in financing for the acquisition of the Original Rainier Brewery, a mixed-use campus located at 5624-6004 Airport Way South in Seattle’s historic Georgetown neighborhood.

Tom Wilson and Zachary Kersten of HFF secured a three-year, floating-rate loan with two one-year extension options with a debt fund for the borrower, ScanlanKemperBard. The borrower plans to make improvements to the property.

Originally built in the early 1990s as a brewery for Seattle Brewing and Malting Co., the property eventually housed Rainier Beer and is a designated landmark. The campus encompasses four separate buildings — the Bottling Plant, the Malt House, the Warehouse and the General Office — and two land parcels.

The assets feature natural light, exposed brick, original flooring, historical detailing and unique layouts. At the time of financing, the property was 92 percent leased to 55 tenants, including REI, Patagonia, Keen, Elysian Brewing Co., Frans Chocolate and Kyoto Art and Antiques.
