Swinerton and Republic of Korea break ground on new consulate building in Seattle

Swinerton and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea celebrated the groundbreaking of a new consulate building in uptown Seattle on Tuesday with a ribbon cutting and speeches from project partners, including Consul General Moon Duk-ho and Swinerton Seattle Division Manager Dave Worley. The new three-story consulate is expected to complete construction in 2019.

The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Seattle provides South Korean nationals, U.S. citizens, and foreign nationals residing in the U.S. with passport and visa services. The Consulate in Seattle holds jurisdiction over five Pacific Northwest states: Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. These five states are home to more than 170,000 Korean-Americans.

Swinerton is honored to partner with the Republic of Korea to enhance and support their mission of growth and development in the Pacific Northwest.
