The University of Washington owns five buildings within the Education
and Community Activities Zone, as defined in the 1999 Magnuson Park Concept
Plan. These buildings are 5, 9, 25, 29, and141/192.
Building 5, the main warehouse during the navy period, was so
large that it at one time had a rail spur from the Burke-Gilman trail.
It is the largest building owned by the UW at Warren G. Magnuson Park
and is currently serving a variety of uses. Approximately 400,000 books
and many furnishings are temporarily stored in Building 5 while Suzzallo
Library is having seismic upgrades completed. The College of Architecture
and Urban Planning and the School of Art will be using portions of the
building for research and art studios. The University of Washington
Medical Center, the Burke Museum and other UW departments are also using
a portion of the building for educational storage -- as anticipated
by the City-University Agreement, which governs uses of UW property
at Warren G. Magnuson Park.
Building 9, the former enlisted personnel barracks, is currently
under study by the real estate development company, Lorig Associates.
They are looking at potential University-related uses for the building
that will meet land use and building code requirements, and the University's
financial constraints and guidelines for Warren G. Magnuson Park. Some
uses that have been considered are office space, a café area,
and housing for graduate students and junior faculty. More studies will
be done before a final decision is made.
Building 25, was renovated in 2009. In September 2010 the Center for Pediatric Dentistry Opened.
Building 29, the former base hospital, was remodeled in 2002.
The School of Public Health and Community Medicine, pediatric medicine
researchers, along with several other departments use this building
for a combination of office, research and educational storage.
Building 141/192, a respiratory training building for pilots
during the navy period, is planned for demolition.
