Sand Point

The City of Seattle's Landmarks Preservation Board approved designation of the Sand Point Naval Air Station as Seattle's eighth Landmark District in 2011. Situated five miles northeast of downtown Seattle on the Sand Point peninsula, the 89-acre landmark district encompasses the two parts of the original Naval Air Station site containing intact resources directly associated with the former Naval Air Station operation.

As the site of the first around-the-world flight, it was also associated with the early development of the Boeing Company and the region's aviation heritage. Throughout the duration of World War II, Naval Air Station Seattle served as the premier center coordinating naval aviation activities within the Thirteenth Naval District.The district's collection of buildings and structures was constructed for the purpose of supporting and maintaining the overall function of the former naval air station. The district retains an important collection of Public Works Administration and Works Progress Administration funded structures and buildings stemming from the nation's pre-war infrastructure expansion, and includes examples of Moderne and Colonial Revival style buildings. The former naval air station now houses a variety of uses including institutional, recreational and residential uses.

Making Changes 

What must be reviewed and approved by the Landmarks Preservation Board?

The following proposed changes* require that the Board issue a Certificate of Approval before the City will issue any permits:

  • Any change to the exterior of a building, structure or object.
  • Any change to the landscape.
  • Any change to a building interior that affects the building exterior
  • Any change in a public right-of-way or other public space
  • Demolition of any building or structure
  • Construction of a new building or structure.

The Board must determine that the proposal complies with the District's Controls and Incentives Agreement, and is consistent with the Secretary of Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation and the District's recommended Guidelines, in order to issue a Certificate of Approval.

* The Controls and Incentives Agreement outlines certain changes that do not require a Certificate of Approval from the Board, and other changes that may be reviewed administratively by Board Staff before a City permit may be issued. 

To apply for a Certificate of Approval, please follow the instructions on this form:
