For more than 127 years, Clise Properties and the Clise family have led development in Seattle. JW Clise, our company’s founder, arrived in 1889, one day after the Great Seattle Fire left the central business district in ashes. JW saw opportunity amid the devastation, and he played an integral role in rebuilding the city from the ground up. Years passed, and Clise Properties flourished. Second-generation leader, Charles F. Clise, recognized considerable long-term growth opportunities in Seattle’s Denny Regrade district. His vision resulted in an unprecedented assemblage of assets, perfectly positioning us to lead Seattle’s development well into the 21st century.
