If you happen to be wandering around town tomorrow morning in search of something to do, the City of Seattle will be reopening King Street Station’s Jackson Plaza in a ceremony from 10:30am to 11:15am. Several keynote speakers will make remarks and there will be live music by the Ballard Sedentary Sousa Band. Other parts of the station remain under construction for rehabilitation.
The plaza has yet to house any vendors/businesses, so I wouldn’t expect there to be a sudden renewal of vibrancy and activity. There are some fairly unique design elements, however, like an all-gravel floor, which almost gives the appearance of a giant Zen garden. The ceremony will be open to the public, but RSVPs are appreciated.
