First to Market
It’s been a long journey for this operation, after having entered the scene as the first official Cannabis retail store in Washington State back when it all began. Originally located on 4th Avenue in the SoDo district, they‘ve recently made the big move around the corner to a much larger floor plan with the vision to create a hub for different verticals around Cannabis. And with that in mind, the objective is to focus on a covey of vendors with the intention to improve exposure to who these brands are, which, as we all know – equates to a better customer experience.
The Cultural Center
It’s all about blending nightlife with Cannabis here. Now, with a 4,800-square-foot property that is throwing distance from the SoDo light rail stop, the plan is to have an immersive space for art, music and weed collectively. Top tier brands with top tier product lines will fill out the undertaking that’s developing on-site, with the goal of building an audience through entertainment, education and interaction geared around a multitude of quality companies and individuals who will take part in themed parties and beyond. What does this ultimately mean for you? A place to hang and wallow carefree in an environment where all your senses are pleased.
It’s kind of cool to walk into a place and play witness to the genesis of a fun hub that is growing into something memorable. As the developing Imaginarium next door is clearly visible through the glass walls, in the showroom you’ll find yourself in an observatory of sorts – looking upon an L-shaped exhibit of beautiful selections accentuated by a glass wall of custom bongs and dab rigs that face the street. This is an urban weed loft, replete with the ambiance of the city’s train rails in the distance.
