Attend the Convention Center Addition Public Benefits Open House 12/7

To build the Washington State Convention Center Addition project, the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) is requesting that the city vacate three alleys and underground portions of Olive Way and Terry Avenue. The project will pay for these rights of way and also provide a package of public benefits.

There are a number of concepts that have been proposed by the community, the city, and WSCC for the public benefits package. Your participation and feedback at the public open house will help determine which ideas should be advanced for further analysis.

Wednesday, December 7
5-7 p.m.
WSCC, Room 2AB

We hope to see you there!

For travel directions, information on parking and transit options can be found here. More information on the project’s proposed alley and street vacations available here.

    Why do we need it. It ignores the Seattle streetscape and the historic Paramount Theater. How does it pay for itself. I have been hearing that visitors don’t wish to come to Seattle because of the great numbers of homeless on the street corners.

      The big building I think is remarkable is the Kent State Center for Architecture and Environmental Design, for Kent State University, Kent, Ohio,
      Architects: Weiss/Manfredi/Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism
      An enormous but graceful building. I am keeping the pertinent pages in case you want them
