SEATTLE — Seattle's Landmarks Preservation Board on Wednesday voted to nominate Seattle City Light's modernist-style former Power Control Center at 157 Roy St. on Lower Queen Anne as a city landmark.

The board voted 10-0 to nominate the site, exterior and interior of the building, which was constructed in 1963. It will consider the designation at a meeting at 3:30 p.m. June 15 in Room L2-80 of City Hall at 600 Fourth Ave.

The Queen Anne Historical Society nominated the steel-reinforced concrete structure designed by architect Harmon, Pray & Detrich. The application is at http://tiny.cc/i471ay under “Current Nominations.”

Seattle City Light owns the building, which is now a homeless shelter.
