Board to consider Times, Fed buildings

SEATTLE — The Landmarks Preservation Board will take up a pair of high-profile buildings awaiting big changes: The Seattle Times Building at 1120 John St. and the Federal Reserve Building at 1015 Second Ave.

The meeting is set for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in Seattle City Hall, Room L280.

The Seattle Times Building was declared a city landmark in 1995 and acquired by Onni Group in 2013. Onni plans to build four mixed-use towers and would preserve much of the historic facade.

Squatters living in the building have created safety problems, prompting an emergency request to demolish much of the structure.

The Federal Reserve Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The board will consider whether to give the building a local landmark designation.

Developer Martin Selig wants to put an office and residential tower atop the 1950 building.
