The Estabrook Building was located on the southeast corner of 2nd Avenue and Union Street.


The three-story Estabrook Building had a Neo-classical exterior, and housed storefronts on its first floor, and offices above. In 1904, the Norris Safe and Lock Company and Cline's Piano House occupoed the prime storefronts. The building was demolished; The Seattle Symphony's Benaroya Hall occupied the site after 1997.
