Waterfront Seattle is a multi-year program to rebuild Seattle’s waterfront following the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The Program spans the waterfront from Pioneer Square to Belltown and includes a rebuilt Elliott Bay Seawall, a new surface street providing access to and from downtown, and new parks, paths, and access to Elliott Bay. Waterfront Seattle is led by the City of Seattle’s Office of the Waterfront, working closely with civic leaders, stakeholders and the broader Seattle public to create a “Waterfront for All.” In all, more than 20 acres of new parks, trails, and public space will be created along Elliott Bay.

Waterfront Seattle will fulfill the community’s vision for a central waterfront for all of Seattle: Beautiful public spaces for all, a salmon-friendly seawall, and year-round cultural, educational, and recreational activities.

Joshua Curtis, Partnerships Manager, City of Seattle Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects, will present the changes taking place on Seattle’s waterfront.

Also presenting is Heidi Hughes, executive director, Friends of Waterfront Seattle. Friends of Waterfront Seattle is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle, helping to execute, steward, and program this park, designed by James Corner Field Operations. Their mission is to build awareness, fundraise, and lead strategies that support the long-term health of the park, all with the goal to ensure that the waterfront is beautiful, vibrant, and welcoming to all.

After more than a decade of public input, the Seattle waterfront is on its way to becoming a 26-block park and lively mixing ground that embraces our working waterfront while restoring the health of the nearshore environment.
