One of Seattle’s historic buildings in Pioneer Square has been sold to a Canadian investment company.

Vancouver-based Sun Capital Corp. bought the Pioneer Building at First Avenue and James Street for $12.3 million, or about $171 a square foot, King County records showed Friday.

Completed in 1892, the six-story red brick building with stone and terra cotta trim has more than 100 tenants, including attorneys, psychiatrists and Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour, said listing broker Vince Schwab, of Marcus & Millichap’s San Francisco office.

The sellers were Richard and Dorothy Sikora of Seattle, records show.
