Benaroya Capital

The Benaroya name has been synonymous with award-winning real estate in the Puget Sound area for more than half a century.

Established in 1956, the company has completed a wide range of real estate projects, including 20 post offices around the Pacific Northwest, medical office buildings, engineering offices for The Boeing Company’s 747 program in Everett; the Pacific Market Center and Design Center Northwest; Parkway Plaza at Southcenter; the Pavilion Outlet Center (the first off-price retail complex on the West Coast) and business parks in Seattle, Bellevue, Renton, Kent, Auburn, and Portland totaling several million square feet.

In 1984, the Benaroyas sold their entire real estate portfolio, and changed their focus to philanthropy and to venture capital investments in promising Northwest enterprises. The Benaroyas’ lead gift enabled construction to begin for the new Seattle Symphony Hall. The world-class venue, Benaroya Hall, opened its doors in 1998. In 1999, Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle completed construction of its state-of-the-art Benaroya Research Institute, a facility dedicated to solving the mysteries of diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. The Benaroyas also support numerous other civic, medical, and charitable organizations.

In 1995, The Benaroya Company reentered the Northwest real estate scene. Today, our office, data center, retail, and industrial holdings extend from the Puget Sound region to the broader Pacific Northwest.

Under the leadership of Larry Benaroya, The Benaroya Company employs a staff of 30, including professionals experienced in the acquisition, development, management, and leasing of quality commercial real estate. Our ability to move quickly, to anticipate the changing needs of our tenants, and to provide excellent quality and value has made The Benaroya Company a leader in commercial real estate throughout the Pacific Northwest.
