Two Modern Landmark Nominations

Please Support Our Advocacy Efforts!
Docomomo WEWA recently prepared and submitted Seattle Landmark nomination applications for the former Pacific Architect & Builder building in the Eastlake neighborhood (1945 Yale Place E) and for the Shannon & Wilson building (3670 Woodland Park Ave N) in an area that straddles Wallingford and Fremont.

The Pacific Architect & Builder nomination was reviewed by the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board at its meeting on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. We are thrilled to report that the Board voted unanimously to nominate the property. It will consider designation at its July 19 meeting.

Also at its July 19 meeting, the Board will review the nomination of the Shannon & Wilson building.

The meeting is open to the public and the Board takes public comments. Please consider attending the meeting to provide comment in support of the nomination, or submit written comments to the Landmarks Preservation Board Coordinator (Erin Doherty, erin.doherty@seattle.gov no later than Tuesday, July 18, 3 pm). It's best to submit written comments a few days before the deadline.

Docomomo WEWA thanks you for your support! We nominated these two properties because we believe they are important buildings that should be formally recognized for their significance and protected through landmark designation.
