Waterfront Seattle // Seattle, WA
Land Morphology is providing planting design services, collaborating with James Corner Field Operations on Seattle’s new 1.25 mile / 26 block waterfront park and urban space. Different landscape characters denote the different zones of the waterfront. Ranging from the historic Pioneer Square neighborhood to the future connection to the Market Front development at Pike Place Market and beyond to Belltown, the place shaping landscape will make the Seattle waterfront a unique and beautiful destination. Native and ornamental plants will provide color, texture, and form, changing with the seasons. Street trees, raised planters, and planting beds will enhance the visitor’s experience of the new waterfront. Sustainable features include biofiltration cells that filter stormwater before it reaches Puget Sound.
