Today the City of Seattle announced that James Corner Field Operations (unsic) would be lead designer for the central waterfront project.

JCFO is a New York firm, but on this project it has eleven collaborators, four of which are based in Seattle: Mithun, The Berger Parnership, Herrera Environmental Consultants, and Jason Toft, who is a person and not really a firm.

Coming up next, says the Department of Planning and Development:

The City will select the project manager and engineering team for the Central Waterfront project next week. Design work will begin in October 2010 with a conceptual design expected in 2012 and a final design to be delivered in 2015. Construction is scheduled from 2016 to 2018.
