Seattle Administrative Office Move

move website page

This February, our Seattle office is relocating to Georgetown! Our new address is:

5601 6th Avenue South
Suite 150
Seattle, WA 98108

We will be leaving our old building on February 24, but we won't be fully moved unto our new space until April. While we put the finishing touches on our new space, we are asking all members of our Girl Scout community to visit one of our other locations throughout April. 

You might recognize our new digs as the former Design Center on 6th Avenue South. We're pleased to be moving into a new space with great neighbors, beautiful natural light throughout the building, and ample parking. We're also going to have a brand new, first-of-its-kind Girl Scout maker space! This exciting new multipurpose space will offer space for troop meetings, Girl Scout programming, and more.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information, or check out the FAQs below.

Seattle Office Move FAQ

Why is the Seattle Office changing locations?

A few major factors impacted our decision for selling and moving out of our 601 Valley Street location:

  • Limited Accessibility: With its location along the Mercer corridor, the current building is a daily challenge for volunteers and staff to access due to traffic and ongoing construction that is projected through 2022. That, combined with parking limitations, restricts its use as a meeting site—we actually try to avoid bringing people to the Seattle office.
  • Timing: The situation in the South Lake Union area is unique. We’ve been approached by interested potential buyers more and more over the last few years and relevant experts have assured us that the market is at a high point. That makes this an excellent time to utilize this asset to its best advantage for the council.    
  • Rent vs. Mortgage: At this point, the difference between rent and mortgage costs is nearly a wash—though we do see relative savings over a 60-month period, with the additional upside of avoiding costly upgrades to the 601 Valley Street property.
  • Need for Collaborative Space: New space will positively impact Girl Scouts of Western Washington’s organizational culture. Our 601 Valley Street location is a “cube farm” spread across three floors. Staff, even teams, are physically divided. Our new space will be configured to better support our culture of collaborative and cross-team work.

When can I visit the new Seattle office?

We will be leaving our old building on February 24, but we won't be fully moved unto our new space until April. While we put the finishing touches on our new space, we are asking all members of our Girl Scout community to visit one of our other locations throughout April. 

We will make an announcement to all our members when the new space is open!

Will Seattle staff be available during the move?

Yes! Our Seattle staff will be working throughout March and April as we transition into our new space. We may have slightly delayed response times for emails or calls—thank you for your flexibility and patience as we make this move!

Will there be space for girls or members at the new office?

Yes! We're going to have a brand new, first-of-its-kind Girl Scout maker space in the new Seattle office. This exciting new multipurpose space will offer space for troop meetings, Girl Scout programming, and more. We will share more information soon with details for members about this new resource.

Will there be a Girl Scout store at the Seattle office?

We are planning new ways to support volunteers and girls with a small pop-up store beginning in the Fall of 2017. Stay tuned!
