Building History

Seattle architectural firm, Kirk, Wallace, McKinley, AIA and Associates, designed this multi-level, above grade parking garage to be connected to the auditorium by a glazed walkway over Mercer Street. The consulting Structural Engineer for this 1500-car parking garage was the firm, Norman G. Jacobson and Associates. The garage cost approximately $2 per square foot.

The parking garage occupied a site bounded by Roy Street on the north, 3rd Avenue North on the west, Mercer Street on the south, and 4th Avenue North on the east.
