’57 Biscayne occupies the second and third floors of the historic Scheuerman Block, which was renamed the Good Arts Building upon its purchase by Good Arts LLC in 2015. The Good Arts partnership was formed by developer Greg Smith, Cherry Street Coffee House owner Ali Ghambari, and artists Jane Richlovsky and Steve Coulter with the following mission:
Given that artists, craftspeople, and creative businesses form the core of the historical identity of Seattle and, more specifically, Pioneer Square, Good Arts LLC endeavors to maintain that identity and promote economic and creative vitality through responsible real estate development.
Our mission is to preserve and expand the presence of the creative class in Pioneer Square by responsibly renovating and operating the historic Scheuerman Building specifically to supply affordable space for creation, promotion, and exhibition of a broad range of artistic endeavors.
We believe that economic development should include the creative class as its beneficiary as well as its catalyst. To that end, we also foster connections between, and promote the interdependent prosperity of, artists and other neighborhood businesses and institutions.
