The Railroad and Champion Building is a brick and timber building in downtown Bellingham. Built in the early 20th century, the building is an attractive piece of history located on the north end of the vibrant Railroad Avenue corridor.
CURRENT AND Previous Uses
The Railroad and Champion Building was constructed around 1908 to last and has served the city of Bellingham for decades. The building was home to a parts warehouse for the railroad (when tracks ran down Railroad Avenue), a egg warehouse (when eggs were shipped by train daily to Seattle) an outerwear factory, a breakfast cookie bakery and a book repository. The southern half of the building was transformed in 1994 as an office for a prominent Bellingham law firm.
Bellingham's downtown revival and the vibrant Railroad Avenue corridor provides the perfect opportunity for the Railroad and Champion Building to change yet again into a flexible space suitable for a high quality restaurant or premium office.
