The Summit building is scheduled to open for business in the Spring of 2022. While construction will be complete in 2021, our teams will need time for the commissioning of systems, furniture and fixture installations, and final preparations to welcome our guests. The current construction that is underway includes demotion, excavation, and shoring operations – with the total excavation estimated to be 350,000 cubic yards of dirt.

Meeting Planners: Summit bookings have already begun and the sales team is busy finalizing our first contracts! We are booking the Summit and Arch buildings together as a package and separately for clients seeking event space in Seattle. We are also excited to welcome the Hyatt Regency Seattle, a new headquarters hotel with 1,260-rooms located across Olive Street from Summit. Please contact me or any member of our Sales team if you have any questions.

Neighbors, vendors, and community members: You can find construction updates or pursue vendor opportunities at
