Queen Anne High School CondominiumsYears of extreme weather conditions had taken their toll on the historic Queen Anne High School Condominiums buildings. The community consists of four buildings with 137 residential units. The original building was built in 1909, with three additional buildings constructed at later dates.
A variety of building materials have been used at Queen Anne High School Condominiums due to the varying ages of the buildings. The original building consists of masonry and terracotta construction with large wood windows. The aging sashes show extreme wear and were replaced with new insulated glass units that match the look of the other three existing buildings. The masonry was restored to its original condition and damaged or missing terracotta was replaced with new materials. The project features many historic exterior details that had to be carefully protected throughout this restoration.
Originally built as a public school for the Seattle Public School District in 1909, it was later renovated in 1986 to become apartments and then converted to condominiums in 2007. After the school’s original construction, three additional building were built, this is an official City of Seattle landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places.
