The project included replacing the pilings that support the aquarium's primary pier, an 18,000 square-foot expansion to the existing building, a completely new exterior and the addition of a 40-foot, 55,000-lb. viewing window into the new 120,000-gallon showcase exhibit. The Aquarium is located at Pier 59, just down the hillclimb stairs from Pike Place Market.
