Battelle/Talaris Campus Designated A Seattle Historic Landmark!

Today the City of Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board voted to designate the historic Talaris Institute campus (formerly known as the Battelle Memorial Institute) as an Historic Seattle Landmark. The eleven member board listened to a presentation by members of Friends of Battlle/Talaris, Eugenia Woo of Historic Seattle and David Hoedemaker, the original design/build architect for the project in 1966. The vote to designate was unanimous. Friends of Battelle/Talaris would like to thank all our Laurelhurst neighbors who supported the nomination, Chris Moore with Washington Trust for Historic Preservation  and especially Ms. Eugenia Woo with Historic Seattle who worked tirelessly for the success of the nomination, and without whose help the designation of this civic treasure would simply not have been possible.
