Seattle Aquarium plans $113 million pavilion with sharks, sting rays for new waterfront promenade

Seattle Aquarium plans to build shark pavilion to anchor new waterfront, with $34 million from city.

A 325,000-gallon tank with 6-foot-long sharks and 6-foot-wide sting rays native to the South Pacific would be the main draw inside a new Ocean Pavilion that the Seattle Aquarium intends to build, with taxpayers' assistance, between Pike Place Market and Piers 59 and 60. The space could open as early as 2023.  VIEW
