King Street Station is a crossroads for important downtown neighborhoods, including the Commercial, International and Stadium districts, as well as world-renowned Pioneer Square. It was constructed in 1906 by the Great Northern Railway, replacing an earlier station on Railroad Avenue, today’s Alaskan Way. Designed by the firm of Reed and Stem of St. Paul, Minn., which was later involved with the building of Grand Central Terminal in New York City, the station is composed of granite and red brick with terra cotta and cast stone ornamentation.

King Street Station is adjacent to Lumen Field (Seattle Seahawks and Sounders) and a few blocks away from T-Mobile Park (Seattle Mariners). The area is known for its proximity to Pioneer Square, the International District, and the downtown and waterfront areas of Seattle.

The building itself, with its distinctive clock tower, is a Seattle landmark and was inspired by the bell tower on the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy; it was the tallest structure in Seattle when it was built. In recognition of its design integrity and important role within local railroad history, the station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
