Ballard Post Office, Seattle, WA


The Ballard Post Office was built in 1961 and sits within a residential neighborhood on 17th Avenue. As can be seen in the background, new housing is coming to Ballard at a rapid pace, especially larger new condo buildings on Market Street. It seems likely that this mid-century post office will be demolished for denser development in the near future.


The building retains its original facade finishes of brick with enamel panels and plate glass. A flat entrance portico on thin piers runs along the front facade.
