New Arena at Seattle Center Construction Update

(January 11, 2019)

Contractor – Mortenson has taken over all general contractor and construction efforts and continues work to refine the schedule.  All elements of the project remain as planned.

Sound Wall The upper NW courtyard portion of the sound wall is scheduled to be completed on or before January 18th. The lower NW courtyard portion will be completed by January 25th. Wayfinding signage plans for the sound wall are in development.  Once the sound walls are in place, there will no longer be access to the lower courtyard between the arena and A/NT Gallery. Access will be maintained from the upper breezeway, the lower breezeway between SIFF and Vera, and the stairs between SIFF and A/NT Gallery.

A/NT Gallery will be closed through January and will reopen in February 2019.  For updates, please visit their web site at
