Seattle Waterfront: History & Future w/ YAF
Join Young Architects Forum for a Special Happy Hour at Ivar's!
The Waterfront Seattle Program will transform Seattle’s central waterfront, capitalizing on the opportunity created by the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and the replacement of the Elliott Bay Seawall.
The program spans the waterfront from Pioneer Square to Belltown. It includes the rebuilt Elliott Bay Seawall, twenty acres of new and improved public space, improved connections between center city neighborhoods and Elliott Bay, critical utility infrastructure, and new Alaskan Way and Elliott Way surface streets to serve all modes of travel.
Young Architects Forum is partnering with Ivar’s President Bob Donegan, who currently sits in the design committee for the waterfront park. He will be sharing with us his involvement and insights with the Waterfront Seattle Project along with what’s coming up in future construction of the waterfront. In addition to managing the $80 million Ivar’s operation, Bob sits on the boards of the Seattle Aquarium, the Chief Seattle Council Boy Scouts of America, the Seattle Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Seattle Sports Commission, and the Boeing Classic charity golf tournament. He has also served on advisory committees for WSF Colman Dock, the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement Project, and the Seattle Emergency Planning Committee.
Please join us on May 3rd at Ivar’s Acres of Clams, located at Pier 54, 1001 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98104 for this Special Happy Hour
