Waterfront scale model finds temporary home at aquarium

The scale model of the waterfront is now on display at the Seattle Aquarium, just past the starfish touch tanks and jelly fish tunnel. Although you can’t physically touch the miniature city area, you can see in detail the conceptual design for the future waterfront.

The project area for Waterfront Seattle extends 26 blocks along the waterfront, from Pioneer Square to the Olympic Sculpture Park. The conceptual design envisions new parks and paths, access to the water, places to enjoy views, vibrant public and cultural spaces, and a new urban street that will accommodate all modes of travel and provide an importantconnection in the city’s transportation system.


Waterfront Seattle is a civic partnership between the city of Seattle and the entire community to create an inviting new public waterfront for everyone. The transformation of Seattle waterfront is made possible by the need to replace the failing Elliott Bay Seawall and to remove the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

The Seattle Aquarium is located on Pier 59 on the Waterfront.

The model was previously hosted by the Central Library downtown, and has since temporarily moved to the Seattle Aquarium. For more information about the scale model or Waterfront Seattle, call 206-499-8040 or send email to
