First look at the new Colman Dock terminal in Seattle
The Washington State Ferry system is replacing the aging and seismically vulnerable components of Colman Dock in downtown Seattle. While making the terminal stronger in the event of an earthquake is important, ferry riders tell me they are excited about the potential for more walkable retail at the terminal.
A rendering of how the new Colman Dock terminal will look has just be released, and if you don’t like the Jetsons vibe, officials point out, “design work continues as the state nears the start of construction.”
