Spud Fish and Chips Building Nominated For Seattle Landmark Status

January 4, 2018 6:27am

The building that houses Spud Fish & Chips (6800 E. Green Lake Way N) has been nominated for Seattle landmark status. The Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board will consider the nomination February 7 at 3:30 p.m. at City Hall.
You may remember that in July we posted that, according to the DJC, the building was sold for $3.1 million with plans filed for a 59-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail space. (Several Greenlakers also noted that those plans did not include parking.)

Want to weigh in? Here’s two ways.

Attend in person: The meeting with Seattle’s Landmarks Preservation Board is scheduled for February 7, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in Seattle City Hall (600 4th Avenue, Floor L2) in the Boards & Commissions Room L2-80.

  • No. Not everything old should be saved. It’s not a one of a kind.

  • Nomination as a City of Seattle Landmark is more involved than being “one of a kind.” See:

    There are actually few landmark buildings in the Green Lake, Phinney area, including the Green Lake Library and Fire Station #16. The Great Hall would certainly be a candidate IMO, along with the former John B. Allen Elementary School (the “Blue Building” of the Phinney Neighborhood Association).
