The new Concourse C expansion at Seattle Tacoma International Airport will have design elements that celebrate the lush greenery of the Pacific Northwest and promote sustainability. According to a press release from The Port of Seattle, the project will add four floors to the existing structure and an additional 145,530 square feet of dining and retail space.
"The C Concourse Expansion will bring much-needed light, air, and passenger amenities to one of the busiest crossroads in the terminal," said Brian Court, lead designer at Miller Hull. "The new building was designed to bring back the excitement of flight with soaring interior volumes of space and multiple outdoor observation decks that reconnect us to the magic of travel and the iconic mountain and sound views that define the Pacific Northwest."
The Port of Seattle Commission has approved $340 million with room for the budget to increase as the project moves forward according to the release. It is estimated that the final budget will fall somewhere between $240 million to $500 million.
Work is expected to commence this summer with an end date sometime in 2027.
