Cobalt around town: The Jackson Plaza Re-opening

The new Jackson Plaza

The new Jackson Plaza

Paved a Parking Lot, Put up a (Zen) Paradise

This past Friday, the crowd gathered, the cameras flashed, and the Ballard Sedentary Sousa Band struck up a jazzy tune. The occasion? The renovation of the all-new Jackson Plaza, the latest in the city’s urban renewal efforts.  The sun peeked out from behind the clouds just in time for Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn to hoist some giant scissors and cut the red ribbon to officially open Jackson Plaza to the public.

The plaza is located directly in front of Seattle’s historic landmark and transportation hub King Street Station, only about a block away from Cobalt HQ. The plaza has been under construction for more than a year, and now it’s an ideal spot for Cobaltians to take their lunch for a relaxing break in the sun.  There’s no vendors or businesses there yet, so it’s like a small oasis in the middle of one of the most bustling sections of the city.

Just a small part of life in the big city!
