Cornerspotter: A Seattle Landmark, 125 Years in the Making

New, 3 comments

Cornerspotter is the Curbed Seattle feature in which we show you a historical photo taken somewhere in the city and you identify the location. Impress fellow Curbed readers with your knowledge by leaving guesses in the comments or send them to our tipline: seattle@curbed.com. We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

This building is a bit of a hodgepodge of Seattle history. The upper level apartments were originally three two-story wood-frame attached rowhouses constructed sometime between 1888 and 1893. That's pre-Denny Hill regrade. In 1911, the rowhouses were raised and the one-story commercial structure was constructed underneath. It's like a living reminder of Seattle's history. Good thing then that it was recently named a Seattle Landmark in the face of development that might have demolished it. So, what building is this and where is it located?
