The Norton Building is a post-World War II office building in the International Style, located in Seattle, Washington, USA. Built on a sloping lot with the foundation of a large granite base, the building rises 17 stories above the city.

It is notable as one of the first post-World War II private office buildings in the city. Furthermore, its Modernism contrasts with the neighboring Exchange Building which is in the Art Deco style.

Tenants[edit]

The Norton Building has housed multiple tenants including LMN Architects and Pacific Northern Airlines.[3] The building was also home to Seattle's Member-Only Harbor Club which closed on December 31, 2015[4]. The building has sweeping views of the city and Puget Sound region.
