Univ. of Washington science programs to be housed in new building that includes public, private tenants

The University of Washington is expanding scientific programs into an 11-story building, including a wide range of tenants, where multiple fields can come together and collaborate with other organizations such as businesses, nonprofit organizations, government entities and the Seattle community.

“This is a significant milestone for the UW and we are so excited to expand into the area west of campus and begin to define Portage Bay Crossing as a new place for discovery and innovation,” said UW vice president for facilities Lou Cariello. “We envision this as a lively and vibrant place with a mix of academic, arts, culture and retail spaces where students, researchers and others can engage in support of the UW’s learning, research, health care and public service missions.”
