You may have noticed construction fencing going up around the Medgar Evers Pool yesterday; the pool building will soon receive a new roof, coating, and skylights.
The pool will remain open during the coating work, but you’ll see some intermittent closures as the skylights are installed later this year.
Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract to Biwell Construction, which hopes to minimize the impacts and disruptions of the construction. Seattle Parks says the project should be finished in December.
Will it look less like a WWII missile launch facility?
What, brutalist concrete isn’t your thing?
No, this is strictly to fix the skylights and roof.
A step in a good direction–new roof.
New roof /skylight will be great. It is a wonderful pool, have enjoyed swimming there for 30+ years. Great staff!
