The Greeley Building was one of eight "temporary" buildings erected by the Metropolitan Building Company (MBC) on the University of Washington's Metropolitan Tract, once the site of its original campus. It was considered temporary by the University's Trustees, although it was still made of a reinforced concrete frame and brick cladding. Other temporary buildings produced by the MBC included: the Whitson Building, Uhl Building, Olympic Motor Car Company Building, Seattle Art Company Building, Metropolitan Garage, the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) Building and the Sawyer Building.
