This 1920s era apartment house was purchased by the University and used for a number of years as a dormitory. In 2007, it was being used as an office building. Between 09/28/2007-09/30/2007, the 70 employees working here were moved to other locations, in preparation for its demolition in early 2008.

Constructed of wood and brick, the Brooklyn Building stood three stories high and contained 23,000 square feet of space.

In 2007, University of Washington planners concluded that the building was "worn out" and not worthy of rehabilitation. It was scheduled for demolition in 2008. In connection with this demolition, the University planned on razing five single family houses it occupied on 12th Avenue NE between NE 40th Street and NE 41st Street.
