Significance
Built in 1937, Building 25 served as administrative headquarters for the naval air station. In more recent years, it continued to house offices, a computer center, and telecommunications office. Currently owned by the University of Washington, the building is undergoing rehabilitation for educational or research support.
 
Appearance
This Art Deco–style building has a two- and three-story main core and one-story rear wings. Sited in the middle of the district, along NE 74th Street, the building’s main facade looks south, down the corridor of 62nd Avenue NE. The original rectangular footprint from 1937 received a T-plan addition to the north, together forming a slightly lopsided H-plan. The three-story height occurs in the central bay of the main core. A poured concrete foundation supports a poured concrete structure, brick veneer cladding, and flat roofs with parapets on all building sections. Cast stone forms Art Deco decorative motifs on the exterior, particularly on the south facade. Alterations include the T-plan addition, erected between 1938 and 1944.
