Work has begun with Weinstein AU Architects and Urban Designers on the historic Ainsworth & Dunn building for Meriwether Partners! Recently designated an historic landmark, the former Ainsworth Dunn Warehouse was built in 1902 to house a cannery operation serving Seattle’s Pier 70 and the waterfront district during the early 1900s. Stay tuned for more exciting photos from our WALSH Team of Craig Gamble, Mark Olson, Drew Mixter, Dennis Maples, Susan Hori, Nick Silbaugh, Alexa Zastko, Savanna Anderson and Brian Lenz as the work progresses.

WALSH celebrated at the 24th annual Food for Thought luncheon benefiting tuition assistance for students of St Mary’s Academy. Food for Thought is St. Mary’s largest fundraiser in support of tuition assistance. For the 2017-18 school year, over 40% of St. Mary’s Academy families will receive over $1.8 million in tuition assistance. Raising money for tuition assistance is at the core of St. Mary’s mission to provide an outstanding, all-female, Catholic, college-preparatory education to young women of many backgrounds.
