Welcome to the Denny Substation Project page, your portal to information about Seattle City Light's design and construction of a new electrical substation, power distribution network and transmission line to serve our growing city.

Spring 2015: What's been happening?
  • On February 19th, the Seattle Design Commission unanimously approved the project's 90% design and public benefits package and provided further guidance on the potential public benefits. View the renderings of the preferred alternative.

  • A 3-D model of the anticipated substation is now on display in the Visitor's Center on the 32nd floor of the Seattle Municipal Tower. The model was developed by NBBJ, the project architect, to help visualize the proposed facility and was previously displayed at City Hall for review by City Council.

  • The ALL RISE temporary arts program continues to be active, inviting the public to view art installations and performances at the proposed Denny Substation site. Currently the site features two new artist exhibits - one on plinths paralleling Denny Way, and the other a 50-foot light sculpture that lights up the southwest corner of Denny Way and Pontius Ave N. View ALL RISE temporary arts program for current and past art installations.
