$82M in public benefits for WSCC expansion

Journal staff reporter

As part of the planned expansion of the Washington State Convention Center, the city and county have announced the terms for “a suite of benefits” worth some $82 million.

In a statement, Mayor Tim Burgess said, “This historic agreement will expand Seattle's wildly successful convention center while creating more open spaces in the surrounding neighborhood, safer routes for pedestrians and bicyclists, and more affordable housing.

“Thousands of hospitality industry jobs are likely to be created as a result of this project, and so our partners in labor are also launching a training program to help workers prepare for these coming jobs.”
