The Puget Power Building was a four story tall building in Bellevue, Washington. When it was built in 1956 as the corporate headquarters for Puget Sound Power and Light (popularly known as Puget Power), it was the tallest building in Bellevue and on the Eastside. It was described by conservationists as "the best example of the International Style on the Eastside".
The property was sold to a developer by Puget Sound Energy, the successor to Puget Power. The same day the sale was recorded, the building appeared on the annual list of most endangered historic properties compiled by Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.
