Seattle’s Waterfront Changing

Living in the Pacific Northwest brings out the beauty of nature as the background on a clear day shows the majestic view of Mount Rainier.  The snow-capped mountain is one of the great landmarks in Washington state, as well as the iconic shaped Space Needle built during the days of the Seattle World’s Fair.

The current waterfront is in a huge overhaul and reconstruction to provide earthquake safety from the two level freeway and the deteriorating  sea walls.  Several businesses were displace or closed late in the fall to provide the necessary work and repair for the pillars and waterfront properties.  Large cranes and a dedicated ceremony were held prior to the removal of the freeway to enhance the future landscape and renewal waterfront for the growing city.
