According to the SLBP:
“Designated landmarks are those properties that have been recognized by the City as important resources to the community, city, state or nation. The Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board is responsible for determining what properties meet the standards for landmark designation. Designated landmark properties in Seattle include individual buildings and structures, vessels, landscapes and parks, and objects such as street clocks and sculptures.”
