UW: Top 10 capital projects

The University of Washington Medical Center has been a hive of construction activity for the past several years and will remain so. The $210.5 million Montlake Tower addition opened in 2012, and soon the next phase — topping our list at $186.3 million — will be under way.

A few notes about the list: The dollar amounts refer to total project budgets. Start and finish dates are just for construction — in most cases, the buildings won’t be open for another month or two after the finish date.

The information below is from the UW Capital Projects Office and the UW Office of Planning and Budgeting. It includes projects that are in design, construction or closeout. Some major projects that have been announced but are very early in planning, such a proposed $100 million computer science building, weren’t included.
