Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony, opened its doors in 1998 in downtown Seattle with two performance halls: a 2500-seat performance venue, as well as a recital hall seating 536. The building was designed by LMN Architects and named for Seattle philanthropist Jack Benaroya, a significant donor to the capital campaign that raised $159 million in private funds — the largest amount raised to that time by an arts organization in the State of Washington. Its downtown location is credited with revitalizing the city center.
