Our New Building in South Lake Union

About Our Building

Seattle Unity’s new building, designed by world-renowned architects, Olson Kundig is located in the heart of South Lake Union at 8th & John. Scheduled to open in early summer 2022, you can watch the progress of the building’s construction with this live-camera view.

New Construction

Seattle Unity is in a very exciting time in the life of our community.  After 60 years in the same building at 200 8th Ave N in South Lake Union, we made the decision to construct a new physical home to better serve our community and future generations.

We celebrated and said good-bye to our existing building in the summer of 2019.  The underground work was completed in the first half of 2020.  Our construction began in November 2020 and will last one year.

We would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.

Watch for news about our grand opening of our beautiful new building at the beginning of 2022!
