N Concourse at SEA

Seattle, Washington, USA

With more room, views and Pacific Northwest feels, the North Satellite Modernization Project elevates the travel experience to provide the comforts travelers crave.

The newly renovated N Concourse features modern amenities, seismic upgrades, sustainable features and improved building function, along with eight new and 12 remodeled passenger gates and a spectacular Alaska Airlines Lounge.

The architecture is emblamatic of the Pacific Northwest—its majestic sights and sounds. Every element of the design works in concert to orient travelers as it greets visitors and welcomes home residents. This bigger, brighter and bolder space improves the travelers experience with:

  • triple the amount of dining and retail offerings, many of which are local;
  • 10 new installations of museum-quality art that reflects the culture, spirit and history of the region;
  • a plug-in at every single gate seat; and
  • a brand-new performance stage to support the airport’s decade-old program of showcasing Seattle’s diverse music scene with live performances.

USGBC LEED Silver-Certified

Sustainable design strategies include:

  • Captured rainwater from the roof is used to flush toilets and save 2.8 million gallons of potable water annually
  • 76-percent—or 20,000 tons—of construction waste was recycled and thereby diverted from landfills
  • Utilization of nearly $21M in recycled materials
  • Energy-efficient LED lighting, heating, and cooling methods save approximately 1.7 million kWh annually, which is equal to the annual energy usage of 170 homes
