Seattle Center Arena

Review Status

On January 18, 2018, we reviewed the concept design for the Seattle Center Arena Development. This was our second review of the project. At this meeting we voted to approve the concept design proposal with several recommendations. We will review the schematic design phase at a future meeting.

Project Description

The project team is proposing to redevelop the existing arena located within Seattle Center for existing and future professional sports team, other sporting events, concerts, and shows.  The redevelopment site includes the area surrounding the existing arena as well as the block bounded by 1st Ave N, Thomas St, Warren Ave, and John St. The existing arena, which is a designated landmark, will be expanded below grade to increase overall seating capacity.  The loading area along Thomas St. will be redeveloped into an atrium and pedestrian plaza with parking and loading services located below grade.
