In the glorious heart of Bellingham’s Fairhaven district stands the Waldron, one of the city’s most beloved buildings.
Crumbling and facing demolition, the Waldron was saved, thanks in part to Ebenal General, Inc one of the leading building contractors in Whatcom County.
The Waldron was built in 1891 at a cost of $33,000. Even then, it was designed as a mixed-use building, housing a stationery store, a real estate office ,and a bank to help meet the needs of the fast-growing community of Fairhaven.
Later incorporated into the city of Bellingham, Fairhaven has always been a thriving area, though much of the original architecture has vanished.
In 2004, David Ebenal and Ebenal General began work on the Waldron block, which includes both the Waldron and Young Buildings.
Ebenal’s goal was to preserve the historical architecture and the mixed-use purpose envisioned by C.W Waldron over a century ago.
Completed in 2009 by Ebenal General, Inc., the restored Waldron combines an old-world ambience with modern convenience.
It features high-end commercial space and an underground parking garage. And, the adjacent Young Building offers luxury condominium living with gorgeous views and deluxe amenities, close to everything Fairhaven has to offer.
In addition to the Waldron, the Ebenal Group of companies has completed dozens of high-profile projects in the local area.
And though it’s licensed and bonded up to $40 million dollars the Ebenal Group remains a family-owned, local company, dedicated to maintaining the qualities that make our community such a wonderful place to live.
