The Starbucks Center, formerly the SODO Center, world headquarters for Starbucks, is the largest multi-tenant building by floor space in Seattle, with over 2200000sqft. It is located in Seattle's SoDo neighborhood, which makes up a part of the city's large industrial district. It is both the largest and oldest building in the country to earn a national green certification.HistoryIn 1912, the building was constructed by the Union Pacific Railroad in a successful attempt to lure Sears, Roebuck and Co. to Seattle. The building was used to fulfill the Sears Catalog in the Western United States. Sears opened their retail store at this location in 1925. According to the owner, this was the world's oldest continuously operated Sears store.The building was repeatedly expanded throughout the twentieth century. After the Sears catalog business was closed, the building was sold in 1990, and eventually redeveloped as the SoDo Center. Starbucks began moving some administrative offices to the old Sears building in 1993. On June 20, 1997 Starbucks became the building's primary tenant and secured the naming rights. The building underwent significant renovation following severe damage suffered in the 2001 Nisqually earthquake.
