Tumwater Brewery Development
The City of Tumwater engaged Cardinal Architecture and our team of real estate and engineering experts to study the site of the historic Olympia Brewery. Although the site has been untouched for decades, the location is remarkable in its abundance of cultural history, industrial legacy, and natural beauty. The location is a transportation crossroads with highways, waterfalls, wetlands and steep terrain. Our team prepared site planning drawings and corresponding cost plans to kick off site development. We analyzed and reviewed the historic 1905 Olympia Brewery Building and proposed methods and construction costs for restoring the structure. We also studied the potential for developing a regional center for the burgeoning craft brewing and distilling industries, and prepared an innovative business model and building plans for the new project type.
