Building Cure reaches a significant milestone April 26 with the placement of the Level 7 columns. Once placed, we’ll have made it to the halfway mark for the above-grade building structure. Including the structural work below grade, 11 floors of building structure have been completed, representing approximately 400,000 square feet of space for Seattle Children’s quest to eliminate childhood disease. Twelve contractors working on-site and across teams have completed more than 225,000 hours of work on Building Cure.

This weekend, crews will place mechanical units onto the second floor of the building. To facilitate their placement, a large mobile crane will be set up on Terry Avenue on April 28 and 29. Work will begin at 8 a.m. each day. Terry Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic, and a detour will be set up to adjacent streets. The sidewalk on the east side of Terry Avenue will be closed to pedestrians. Foot traffic will be diverted to the sidewalk along the west side of Terry Avenue, which will remain open. Please follow the direction of flaggers and detour signage this weekend, as they are in place for your safety.
