Seattle City Council approved landmark designation ordinances for two city of Seattle landmarks. Located in Downtown and Yesler neighborhoods, these buildings showcase the rich cultural and architectural heritage of Seattle.
The city’s Landmarks Preservation Board approved the nomination, designation, and controls and incentives for each of these landmarks, and provided draft ordinances to City Council. The final step to the process is approval by City Council.
The new landmarks are:
- Seattle National Bank Building built in 1922 (address: 720 2nd Avenue)
Architect: Doyle & Merriam
- Yesler Terrace Steam Plant built in 1942 (address: 120 8th Avenue)
Architect: J. Lister Holmes, with George W. Stoddard and John T. Jacobsen
Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Historic Preservation Program is responsible for the designation and protection of more than 400 historic structures, sites, objects, and vessels, as well as seven historic districts located throughout the city.
