Seattle's downtown waterfront has experienced a steady evolution from its industrial roots to a thriving corridor of retail, office, residential and tourist-oriented uses today. A prime retail location of choice, the waterfront is also rapidly becoming a desirable office location, with companies continuing to stake out spaces in waterfront piers. Waterfront amenities, both public and private, have greatly increased to respond to this versatile area.
