SODO Home Depot
Building Square Footage
The Home Depot Building, located across the street from the Starbucks Center in SODO, is a 108,000 square foot retail space that is occupied by The Home Depot Company. The building, a former horse barn and then Sears Auto Center, was slated for demolition in 1992. The Home Depot Company, one of the fastest-growing corporations in the U.S. at that time, expressed interest in the property. After thoughtful review, Nitze-Stagen and its partners invested in the necessary site improvements to accommodate warehouse/retail use. Home Depot opened on the former Sears Auto Center site in 1993 where it continues to operate today.
