Historic Seattle’s Role:
The late 19th century Victorian Row Apartments are historically and architecturally significant as the only pre-1900 apartments existing in Seattle today in unaltered condition. The building was slated for demolition until 1993 when Historic Seattle entered into a limited partnership with the owner. Tax credits were utilized to rehabilitate the building into 14 units of low-income housing.
The Victorian Row Apartments building was designated a Seattle Landmark in 1979. The property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
