Elmer Fisher, the architect of a large number of post 1889 Fire buildings in Seattle, designed this store and office building for the ill-fated member of the Bell Family, Austin. Austin A. Bell was developer William Bell's son; the Seattle neighborhood, Belltown, takes its name from this influential early family;

The Seattle Landmarks Board declared the Austin A. Bell Apartments a City of Seattle Landmark. Date introduced/referred: August 21, 1978 Date passed: October 23, 1978 Status: Passed Vote: 9-0 Date of Mayor's signature*: November 1, 1978

The building has endured at least two fires, the last of which gutted the interior; in the late 1990s, all but the facade of the building was demolished, and new condominium housing was located on the upper floors;
