Restoring King Street Station’s grandeur

For a newcomer to Seattle like me, it’s fun to discover and learn about new places. For example, I didn’t know King Street Station’s tower was modeled after the bell tower of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice. I had a “duh!” moment when I found out.
The station, which opened in 1906, is a beautiful building inside and out, but it’s been deteriorating for years. Now major repairs are under way to restore it to its original grandeur, including fixing the facade and plaza that connects it to Jackson Street.
Do you know other historic Seattle buildings in need of repair or in danger of demolition?
