Trade Starbucks

Starbucks Center (formerly SODO Center) is the global headquarters of the Starbucks coffee chain. It is located in the Sudo neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The area is part of the city's large industrial zone. Starbucks center is the largest multi-tenant building in terms of floor space in Seattle, with more than 1.8 million square feet (170,000 m2). It is both the largest and oldest building in the country for a green national certification. in 1915, the building was built by Sears, Roebuck & Co. to meet sears catalog in the western United States. It was added on the north side of an original building in 1912. Sears opened their retail store on this site in 1925. According to the owner, this was the oldest continuously operated Sears store in the world (although the Sears store in Lawrence Ave in Chicago opened the same year and was operated until 2016). The building was frequently expanded during the 20th century. After the closure of the Sears catalogue business, the building was sold in 1990 and eventually redeveloped as a SoDo center. Starbucks began moving its management offices to the old Sears building in 1993. On June 20, 1997, the coffee chain moved its headquarters to the Sudo Center, became the main tenant of the building, and acquired naming rights. Accordingly, the building was duly renamed from the Sudo Centre to the Starbucks Center. The Sears store was closed in June 2014 along with the nearby Sears Car Center. In the first quarter of 2017, the latest AmazonFresh Pickup service began operating off-site.
