Seattle Central Waterfront

To realize what is perhaps our single greatest opportunity to create a fresh connection to Puget Sound and a vibrant place for recreation, we must maintain the current design momentum, focus and funding to ensure that the city’s vision is fully executed.

Our Priorities for Seattle Central Waterfront

  • Build a great surface-level public space on the central waterfront
  • Support the City’s ongoing design process
  • Ensure sufficient funding to implement waterfront improvements

Projects

AIA Seattle and its members have been active in every phase of the viaduct removal and waterfront design process.
