Seattle’s Central Waterfront Project Finalists Announced

Last week the City of Seattle announced the shortlist of finalists for the role of lead designer. The four shortlisted teams are led by the following firms:

- Gustafson Guthrie Nichol

– James Corner Field Operations

– Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates

– Wallace Roberts & Todd

The shortlist was established through careful consideration of Statements of Qualifications submitted by 30 teams for the project. The team ultimately selected by the City will lead a design process for more than nine acres of new waterfront public space and a new surface street on Alaskan Way.

Public Presentations will be made by the design teams on September 15.  More information
