220 & Change Lead

About 220 & Change

220 & Change is a beautiful, historic building in Pioneer Square – but it is so much more.

It is a living switchboard for the common good.  A dynamic center and a place where spontaneous connections can happen anywhere – at an event, around the lunch table or passing on the staircase.  It’s a place where changemakers, entrepreneurs, savvy optimists and practical dreamers get great stuff done – right in the middle of thriving and diverse Pioneer Square! People are committed to change – whether it’s improving lives, building a sustainable future, or starting the great venture, their sleeves are permanently rolled up.

220 & Change is the former Masin’s Furniture Building. Built in 1907, this extensively renovated, family owned, 50,000 square foot landmark is an anchor in the community.  It is classic and industrial – exposed brick and metal, massive wooden beams and pillars – made modern.  It has a sweeping staircase, high ceilings, open spaces and lots of glass connecting those in the building.  Stylish and unpolished, like its tenants.  

220 & Change houses Impact Hub Seattle, Social Venture Partners and Pinchot University.  On any given day there are classes running, people meeting, changemakers working and parties brewing.

About the Tenants

What we’re building at 220 & Change with the Building Host Position

We want to change the world for the better, but we know that it’s ultimately happy, healthy, educated, diverse, and involved people that will make that change. Our building is in need of one person to be our full-time host for the entire building, so that when a guest, member, faculty member, student, or staff walks into our building, your job as host will be to welcome them into our space as you would into your home – make them feel welcomed, special, connected, and armed with the resources they will need to make the change they wish to see.
