Designed by famed Chicago architects John Wellborn Root and Daniel Hudson Burnham, the Luzon Building, constructed during the early-1890s, was one of the first high-rise towers on the West Coast. The building was razed in September. According to the City of Tacoma, the historically significant building was deemed a safety hazard and a demolition order was issued.
