The Washington State Convention Center Addition offers a transformative opportunity to create an urban convention venue at the forefront of the convention industry, to offer a rich delegate experience which capitalizes on Seattle’s unique qualities, and to enrich Seattle’s rapidly evolving urban core.

The proposed Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) Addition Project consists of a 3-block site bounded by Howell Street to the north, Pine Street to the south, 9th Avenue to the west, and Boren Avenue and I-5 to the east. Terry Avenue and Olive Way divide the site on the interior. Street and alley vacations will be required for this project.

The project could add approximately 1,230,000 sf. of gross floor area to the existing Washington State Convention Center. Also, co-development on the two blocks north of Olive Way is being studied for feasibility.

Rolluda Architects is participating in the WSCC Addition project as a “visiting professional” with LMN and is co-locating in LMN’s office for this work. This teaming arrangement is in support of helping to meet DBE Outreach Goals established by the WSCC board.
