Summit Construction Site Images September 2022

Convention CenterSummit

Summit is located just a block and a half northeast of the existing Arch building. Both buildings are centrally located in the heart of Seattle’s retail district, and are just a few blocks from iconic Pike Place Market.

This convention center not only connects Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods, it blends city life with elements of the natural surroundings to create a place that is home to uniquely local experiences and awe-inspiring meeting spaces.

A cascading wood stair climb allows for access to all levels, but also a place to sit and mingle—offering views of the iconic Pike Place Market sign and Puget Sound. The main ballroom features a wall of windows with a panoramic cityscape backdrop, and a sizeable outdoor garden terrace provides a truly remarkable setting for receptions.
