Liz Dunn | Owner
Liz spent the early years of her career as a software developer at Microsoft, including roles overseas and at DreamWorks Interactive, before doing a hard pivot into real estate development and the curation of retail neighborhoods. Through her company Dunn & Hobbes, she has been building and managing real estate in Seattle for 20 years. Her projects include such well-loved destinations as Chophouse Row, the Agnes Lofts and Melrose Market. She is founder and owner of the Cloud Room, a co-working space, culture club, lounge and bar located in the heart of Pike-Pine on Capitol Hill, as well as two affiliated operating businesses: Cloud Studios, a band practice facility, and the Overcast Room, a podcast recording studio.
Liz is also passionate about supporting other entrepreneurs. More than half of her retail and restaurant tenants are women-owned, minority-owned, or both, and she is an active angel investor in tech, alternative energy, cannabis and consumer-facing companies. Recent investments include Blok24, Good Ship and Cone & Steiner.
