Seattle Dept. of Construction and Inspections > Collections

The purpose of design review is to promote design excellence for new development throughout the City of Seattle. While all buildings that receive design review recommendation meet the intent of the design guidelines, we have selected this gallery of projects which meet numerous guidelines to an exemplary degree.

Please click on any of the album thumbnails to find images from each great project. Within each album, photos of the completed project and its architectural drawings will show features that highlight quality design. By clicking on individual images, you will find project details (zoning, architect, size, etc) and a description of how the project exemplifies the design guidelines.

The projects shown here are just a few of the high-quality developments that have received design review and other great projects will be added to this gallery as they are built.
