The Record on KUOW will broadcast live from the Washington Shoe Building on Occidental Square (410 Occidental Way South), Friday, from noon to 2 p.m. If you live or work in Pioneer Square, come by and tell us about your neighborhood.

Highlights From The KUOW Booth


When the Washington Shoe Building was finished in 1892, it was four floors of manufacturing and warehouse space. Two additional floors were added in 1912 and in the more than 100 years since, the building has housed shoe makers, visual artists and app developers. Ross Reynolds and Arwen Nicks discuss the unique history of the Washington Shoe Building.
