By the later 2000’s, the Chrysler Building needed updating to meet Hunters Capital’s vision of mixed-use retail and office space. The restoration began in the fall of 2009. It included work on all exterior surfaces: the terracotta brick along the east façade, stucco along the south and west façade, wood paneling, and wood framed windows. Later tenant build-outs resulted in modern office and retail space across the entire building, including a rooftop deck with commanding views of central Seattle.
