The artwork printed on the Midtown Square building panels feature two artists local to Seattle’s historic Central District.

Midtown Square is located in the heart of Seattle’s historic Central District at 23rd & East Union with 432 mixed income apartments, and 28,000 square feet of commercial retail space designated for local, minority-owned businesses. Approximately 30% of the apartment homes are qualified as “affordable” housing. Also included is one of the largest privately run public arts projects in the PNW region, featuring a range of relevant and diverse local artists unique to the Central Area community. 

Evergreen is pleased (along with sister print shop United print. signs. graphics.) to have been awarded both the exterior building artwork package and the exterior and interior sign packages for this beautiful and vital new addition to the Seattle landscape.
