Building Community with Sellen+
Sellen+ is an idea that has been long in the making for Sellen.
In the past, Sellen has hosted educational networking events that covered topics such as sustainability and virtual design. Sellen+ is the next iteration, taking them one step further by showcasing Sellen’s community-focused projects and the people behind them. The goal of the series is to bring our partners and community organizations together for conversations around the important and impactful work happening in the Puget Sound area.
The first official Sellen+ event took place in May 2015 and featured Ben Franz-Knight, the executive director of the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority. Ben offered attendees an inside look at the Market, beginning with its humble start as a series of local produce stalls to its establishment as one of the city’s most iconic attractions.
“We are in a unique position to connect diverse groups of people,” Sellen President Scott Redman said. “Our vision for the program is to create a more robust dialogue around the work being done by some of the leading organizations in our community and how that work might impact the real estate, design and construction industry.”
