A HISTORY OF CARING
The Medical Dental Building is an eighteen-story, concrete frame, high-rise constructed in 1925 and later expanded in 1950. The building is composed of a two-story base, with a “U” shaped tower above, with the northeast half of the “U” added in 1950. Each of the distinct halves reflects its unique architectural era. The 1925 building was originally conceived by doctors who wanted to establish a real medical center in Seattle. The building was constructed with an exterior façade of terra-cotta cladding over hollow clay tile on the southwest, northwest and northeast faces. The façade facing southeast is cement plaster over hollow clay tile. The 1925 building’s architectural elements were clearly influenced by the earlier Gothic revival movement while the 1950 addition and renovation were influenced by the Modern Movement in architecture.
The Medical Dental Building has proudly served as an office building primarily serving Seattle’s medical and dental communities since its origination.

Originally constructed in 1925 and expanded in 1950, the Medical Dental Building was envisioned as a “real medical center in Seattle”.
Original plans for expansion were set aside after the New York stock market collapsed in 1929 and private development came to a virtual standstill. In 1950, the second phase of the building was completed.
Today, the Medical Dental Building continues to serve its original mission: to provide a true health & well- ness destination in the heart of the city. The Medical Dental Building serves as a destination that caters to all aspects of a healthy lifestyle with commitments to advancements in health care, promotion of public health and providing dental & medical care for Seattle patients.
