You’ve probably heard the news by now, but Seattle’s waterfront park Pier 58 is compromised. And in an unusually quick move by Seattle, they’ve decided to remove the pier starting in early September. But don’t get too sad, a new pier is set to replace it.

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Pier 58 experienced some major shifting which left a gap between it and the land. And obviously that makes it unsafe to use. But luckily a pier renovation was already planned and funded. So we might actually see this project completed on time.

The new Pier 58 will include a playground, plaza, and more landscaping. But the city is being sure to save some of the important furniture, art, and the existing fountain which will hopefully be returned to the park.
