Located on the northwest corner of Second Avenue and Pike Street (1501 Second Avenue) in downtown Seattle, the Eitel Building is a City Landmark built in 1904 with a 1906 one-story addition. The Classical Revival style office building was built for contractor and developer Fred Eitel and designed by architect William Doty van Siclen.

Historic Seattle has been advocating for the preservation of the building and in 2006, sponsored a landmark nomination prepared by Larry Johnson of The Johnson Partnership. Even though it was designated a landmark, the Eitel Building’s status remains threatened and we continue to monitor the property. Read more about the preservation advocacy issue on our website.

The Eitel Building is now for sale which is a good thing. The building, with its ideal downtown location near Pike Place Market and the downtown retail core, presents a wonderful opportunity for rehabilitation. Know anyone interested in a historic rehab project?
