Waterfront Seattle Announces Civic Events: October 27, 29 and 30

NOTE:  A media availability session with James Corner will be held on Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. at Bell Harbor Conference Center, Pier 66 - Elliott Hall (entrance off Alaskan Way), 2211 Alaskan Way, Seattle.

This week’s demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct’s south mile is a sign that change on Seattle’s waterfront is underway. Waterfront Seattle is hosting events this week for the public to learn the latest about the new waterfront design, share their ideas, and bring their children to Waterfront Park for a photo booth and trick-or-treating at the Seattle Aquarium.

A new waterfront will include something for everyone–new public spaces, opportunities to enjoy the water's edge, walking and viewing areas, new connections, public art and more. Participation in these events is a great way for the entire community to help shape the future of our waterfront.

October 27 public event – “Experience the Waterfront”

This Thursday evening, join Waterfront Seattle for a design update and idea sharing event. The event begins at 5 p.m., with live music from Silicon Girls, a VERA project band, and local favorite food trucks Curry Now, Marination Mobile and Molly Moon's Ice Cream. At 6:30 p.m. lead designer James Corner will present the latest design ideas for the waterfront. A live question and answer session with the designers and interactive feedback stations for the community to share ideas will follow the presentation. This event is free and open to all.

Thursday, October 27
5 to 9 p.m.
Bell Harbor Conference Center, Pier 66 - Elliott Hall

Waterfront Seattle is a partnership between the City of Seattle and the entire community to create a dynamic new public waterfront, covering 26 blocks between King Street and the Olympic Sculpture Park.  The project is led by the Seattle Departments of Transportation, Planning and Development, Parks and Recreation, and the Central Waterfront Committee.
