Seattle's new waterfront

After more than 65 years of being cut off from downtown Seattle, a new waterfront is set to unfurl, dramatically changing the city’s landscape

The new, eco-conscious seawall is the foundation of the waterfront’s future

Arts and culture are a significant focus of the vision for Seattle’s new waterfront, including permanent art installations by local and internationally renowned artists. These works have been commissioned to mingle with various aspects of the waterfront, such as its ecology, economy and communities, and will honor the area’s past, present and future. The artists who have been tapped are in the early stages of developing their work, scheduled to debut with the opening of the waterfront park in 2023
