A New Waterfront for All

Supporting a new frontier for public space and activation

The Downtown Seattle Association fully supports the redesign of Seattle’s waterfront, which is being led by the city of Seattle’s Office of the Waterfront, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, civic leaders and the broader public. We believe this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reconnect downtown with our waterfront along Elliott Bay. With the seawall construction complete and the Alaskan Way Viaduct removed, the waterfront project is officially underway — linking the new Pike Place Marketfront expansion and Aquarium renovation to a new front door for the city.
