List of buildings in Seattle

This is a list of buildings in Seattle.

Seattle buildings

The City of Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board maintains an official list of Seattle City Landmarks. In addition, the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) maintains a national list that includes over a hundred Registered Historic Places in Seattle. The two lists have some overlap, but are independent of one another. For example, the Space Needle is on the city list, but not the NRHP; conversely, the 5th Avenue Theatre is on the NRHP, but is not a city landmark. Also, many buildings are on these lists under different names, or even in different combinations; for example, William Parsons House on the NRHP is the same building as Harvard House in the city's listing, and the NRHP lists a single Guiry and Schillestad Building, while the city's listing overtly recognizes its origin as two separate buildings and separately lists the Guiry Hotel and the Schillestad Building.

Some notable Seattle buildings are neither nationally registered nor do they have landmark status. These include:
