Diorama at Sea-Tac. Statistics on airport user interaction with the advertising diorama are attached. The Port of Seattle extended the initial quarter year of advertising for three quarters with no additional cost. The most frequent siting motivation during business relocation is a CEO who desires a lifestyle and business location. You might recall that the city paid only to create and install the diorama display, while the Port of Seattle subsidized the space, a relatively small city investment. Further, the city defrayed 2/3 of that investment, the creation and installation cost, with a different Port of Seattle economic development grant.
