The $12.5 million Capital Campaign for Cascade Public Media will secure a permanent new home for KCTS 9 and Crosscut, ensuring that current and future residents of the Pacific Northwest have reliable, community-driven media for decades to come.
After 40 years, we're being forced to move.
In 1984, we entered into a 40-year land lease with the City of Seattle and constructed a building at the northeast corner of the Seattle Center. The City will not be renewing this lease and we must move by the end of 2023.
Good news: We found our new home!
Cascade Public Media will move to a pre-existing 44,317 square foot building in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood. The space is well suited for the needs of KCTS 9 and Crosscut and is ideally located within communities we serve and among those with whom we hope to build a deeper connection.

In June, 2022 we selected OAC Services, a construction and project management firm with over 60 years in the business, and JPC Architects, one of the largest building design and architecture service firms in the Pacific Northwest, to oversee the building renovations.
June 30, 2022 was our closing day on the new building! To purchase the building, we secured a finance package which includes tax exempt bonds through the Washington Economic Development Finance Authority. This will reduce the interest rate on our mortgage by about 20% as compared to conventional financing.
