  • The Globe Building, Beebe Building and the Hotel Cecil are a trio of historic office/hotel buildings in downtown Seattle, Washington. The buildings occupy the entire west side of the 1000 block of 1st Avenue between Madison and Spring Streets. All three buildings were constructed from late 1900 to 1901 for Syracuse, New York investors Clifford Beebe and William Nottingham by the Clise Investment Company, headed by the prominent Seattlite James Clise, as a result of the Alaska Gold Rush which resulted in the construction of many such buildings in downtown Seattle. James Clise made other major contributions to the future of Seattle including convincing L.C. Smith to build the Smith Tower, securing land on Magnolia Bluff to build Fort Lawton and playing a major part in the Denny Regrade which reshaped the city. He was also active in securing the site for the University of Washington campus as well as the Lake Washington Ship Canal. All three buildings were designed in Italian Renaissance Style for Clise by Max Umbrecht, a mostly residential architect who came to Seattle around 1900 from Syracuse, New York where he had worked briefly in the firm of Jeffery & Umbrecht.
