A new theater, gym and commons is being built next to Roosevelt High School's main building.

1410 N.E. 66th St., Seattle

$57 million (construction)
$84 million (total)

Type of contract:
General contractor/ construction manager

Start of construction:
June 2004

Expected completion date:
June 2006 (substantial completion)


The landmark main building of the school is being preserved.

Roosevelt High School consists of three buildings, including a 1922-vintage main structure that is designated as a historic landmark. The other two buildings include: a 1965 annex holding a cafeteria, studios and shops; and a 1960 gymnasium.

The project will significantly alter a 1928 addition, demolish the cafeteria and gym, and preserve the landmark building. A new theater, gym and commons will be located in a new section.

The renovated school will meet modern requirements for 1,600 students, including security, site circulation and barrier-free access. It will be 280,000 square feet.

Construction work is being sequenced to reduce its impact.
