- We've completed the 90% design of the Distribution Network System. The network map shows the proposed routes for the underground network feeders and associated duct bank systems. Learn more about the Denny Network System.
- The project received approval from the Seattle Design Commission for the 60% design of one Denny Substation alternative design (SCL preferred alternative - SA3) and conditional approval of the Urban Merit of the proposed vacation of Pontius Ave N that would be needed for that alternative.
- Seattle City Light is currently focused on developing the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
- The Denny Substation social media continues to grow since launching in April.
- ALL RISE temporary art program installed two new art installations on the site of the proposed Denny Substation: "Flatlands," by artist Rodrigo Valenzuela, and "In Situ," by artist Karl Burkheimer. Soon the public will be allowed through the fence and things will happen inside, to include dance, performance, structural pieces, sculptural pieces and music.
- The project has received an endorsement by the Seattle Arts Commission for the permanent artwork design concepts developed by Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo of Lead Pencil Studio and Ned Kahn.
