Civic Square

As the last key piece of the City’s 1999 Civic Center Master Plan, the Civic Square will give downtown Seattle a vibrant open space for the public to enjoy.

This public-private project will feature a large public plaza with open space and retail spaces on the southern portion of the site and an office and residential tower on the north.

Located on the site of the former Public Safety Building, the new Civic Square will be just west of City Hall at 4th & Cherry and will include a redesigned 3rd & James Transit Tunnel entrance.

The public space is designed to deepen the community’s civic identity, accommodate a broad range of events, foster dynamic interaction with stores and restaurants, and provide a beautiful gathering place for citizens and visitors.

The tower is designed to integrate with and literally reflect surrounding buildings. It is envisioned that residents and office occupants of the tower will naturally merge with the larger community in the public plaza.

   The project is currently in the design phase.
