Design Perspectives: Occidental Park getting a great new neighbor

By CLAIR ENLOW
Special to the Journal

200 Occidental will open its doors in two months, and it will be a fine address. That may not seem like high praise for design, but it is because the building is a key piece of a bigger achievement: a four-decade-long project called Occidental Park.

Thanks in part to 200 Occidental, the park is now truly the heart of Pioneer Square.


For the second summer in a row, Occidental Park is filled with people, thanks to a new partnership between the city, Downtown Seattle Association and other groups.




Starting this fall, 200 Occidental will add 800 people to the daytime population of Pioneer Square. Mithun designed the building with a modernist facade that brings a fourth side to the historic square.

This is one of those projects that looks even better in real life than it looked in the renderings. Took a decade to make it happen, but the final product will be great.

I love the brick facade. It's so classy, classical looking, and yet very modern

It's lovely how this structure hugs the tree canopy. What a dramatic improvement! It feels like big city infill.
