Award-winning Seattle architectural photographer Lara Swimmer has been capturing images of libraries for nearly two decades, starting with the Seattle Central Library in 2004. Swimmer's new book, “Reading Room: New and Reimagined Libraries of the American West,” was published last week by Artifice Press.
A Capitol Hill site at 600 Broadway E. is bound for redevelopment. Several parcels are owned by local investors including Diamond Parking. Five old buildings, including Bait Shop, are eventually bound for demolition.
Just north of Interstate 5, and a little west of the Tacoma Dome, developer Bode assembled a multifamily site three years ago. That now goes by 2912 S. C St., where plans are well advanced for a seven-story, 184-unit apartment project.
When completed, the four-story, approximately 54,000-square-foot building will be the new home for the university's electrical engineering, computer science, and energy science and technology programs. It will also be the region's first carbon net-neutral collegiate facility.
Seattle Public Schools picked Skanska to build a replacement Sacajawea Elementary School under a general contractor/construction manager contract. The existing school is on 3.75 acres at 9501 20th Ave. N.E. in the Maple Leaf neighborhood.
