Our Seattle Financial Hub at the Bullitt Center

We're moving to the greenest commercial building in the world.

We are proud to announce our new Seattle Financial Hub at the Bullitt Center, opening October 6, 2020. 


It's not just sustainable—it's regenerative.

The Bullitt Center embodies our approach to rebuilding the environment and negating social injustices with our lending practices.

A Living Building

The 6-story, 50,000 sq. ft. building is the nation’s first urban mid-rise commercial project to meet the rigorous goals of the Living Building Challenge, the most ambitious benchmark of sustainability in the built environment. Toxic chemicals were screened out of the materials used to build the Bullitt Center, including lead, phthalates, and hundreds of others known to harm human and environmental health. All wood used in the building is 100% Forest Stewardship Council Certified. As a mass timber structure, the Bullitt Center dramatically decrease embodied carbon found in concrete and steel structures, which is a critical component of a net zero energy building.

 

Innovative Green Technology

Net-zero energy use with 100% onsite renewable energy generation from solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, water needs provided by harvested rainwater, onsite waste management with a greywater filtration system, a safe, naturally day-lit and ventilated work environment for all workers, and built to last 250 years. The Bullitt Center has been net positive energy over its entire lifespan, generating more electricity than it consumes through solar, even with overcast Seattle skies. 


A financial hub of the future

Our Bullitt Center hub will not just offer products to our clients, but also teach them the tools they need to reach their financial goals. 

Teaching our new tech

Our Seattle hub will focus on serving our clients using new technology. We can teach you to use upcoming features like Video Banking or help you with Online and Mobile Banking. With both in-person support and a Self-Service Station, you can get the help you need to use our services without needing to come into a branch. The hub will be cashless, but you can always deposit or withdraw cash through the on-site ATM.

 

Financial wellness

One of our focuses has always been helping our clients achieve financial wellness. We look forward to working with clients to understand their needs and goals. We will offer personal assistance with financial planning and workshops, and will continue to offer financial wellness virtual webinars through shelter-in-place orders.
