Project Detail

The foundation for the new Pier 58 is taking shape along the Seattle waterfront. The project is a piece of the $756 million renovation and rehabilitation of the waterfront that began in 2010 and is headed by the city’s Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects.

Pacific Pile & Marine is rebuilding Pier 58 under a $34.5 million contract.

The new 48,000-square-foot pier will have a triangular shape, with a nearshore opening to improve salmon habitat. Its focal point will be a new children’s playground that includes a four-level climbing tower resembling a jellyfish and an 18-foot slide. Other amenities planned for the pier include a shaded tree grove and elevated lawn, and a plaza and event space that can be used for concerts, outdoor movies and other pop-up events.

Part of Pacific Pile’s contract included demolition of Pier 63 to the north, which was finished late last year and included removing 894 timber piles and nearly 50,000 square feet of decking. Pier 63 closed in 2017 due to safety concerns and its removal is expected to improve the ecosystem of the nearshore habitat, providing more light for plants to grow and marine life to flourish.
