King Street Station is located between S. King and S. Jackson Streets and 2nd and 4th Avenues S. in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. Built from 1904 to 1906, It served the Great Northern Railway and Northern Pacific Railroad from its grand opening on May 10, 1906 until the creation of Amtrak in 1971. The station was designed by the St. Paul, Minnesota architectural firm of Reed & Stem, who were later associate designers for New York City's Grand Central Station. King Street station was added to the National Register of Historic Places and the Washington Heritage Register in 1973..Since the early 1990s the station has been in various states of repair to undo remodels done during the mid 20th century including the restoration of the elegant main waiting room. King Street Station was purchased by the City of Seattle in 2008 for $10 and with enough funds now in place the restoration is planned to finally be complete by 2012.[2]
