Demolition of Seattle Unity’s existing building is complete. Shoring began this week in preparation for excavation. The first step is drilling H shaped steel beams into the earth (as seen above) that will then be the anchoring for lateral supports. Turner Construction is Greystar’s General Contractor (GC) and is overseeing this first phase of the work (excavation, pouring of the foundation, and construction of the underground parking garage), which will take a year. Starting next August Turner is scheduled to begin construction the Waverly tower and Seattle Unity’s GC, SeaBay will begin construction of our new physical home.
Seattle Unity will have a ground dedication at noon on Sunday, October 13th following the service. Join us that day to bless the physical location of our future building at 200 8th Ave N and our new neighbor, the Waverly tower.
Remember our community meeting on October 6th, 11:30 – 12:30. Updates on the new building project will be presented.
Have questions before that time? Find me on a Sunday, call (206.622.8475 x152) or email.
Look next week for another update.
