Happy Earth Day. Bullitt Center opens Monday

Happy Earth Day!

The Bullitt Center officially opens in Seattle’s Capitol Hill on Monday. The building, which sets a high standard for sustainable design, will house the nonprofit Bullitt Foundation. The organization’s executive director, Denis Hayes, is the founder of Earth Day.

The center will host tours starting at noon. For Monday’s grand opening, the center will also provide free bike repair and bike valets. (There is no parking for cars at the new building.) For more information about Monday’s festivities, check the foundation’s website.

Check out this Instagram slideshow our multimedia editorial writer Thanh Tan made of the Bullitt Center:

In March, we ran an editorial notebook about the building back. Here is an excerpt:

“You can be exceedingly environmental without eating granola and living in a yurt,” he says, with a wry smile. “This is a highly productive building.”
