Seattle Center Arena

Review Status

On October 5, 2017, we reviewed the pre-concept design for the Seattle Center Arena Development. We did not take an action during today's meeting. We provided the project team with several recommendations that should be addressed prior to the next review.

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.
