Amgen Helix Bridge

Amgen Helix Pedestrian Bridge

Most Seattleites will drive right by this architectural gem without giving it much notice. Spanning 11 railroad tracks, this bridge connects Amgen’s office complex on the waterfront to a major arterial road. The bridge is designed after the double helix structure of DNA. (Amgen is one of the world’s largest biotech companies.)

It’s too bad that more people don’t enjoy this stunning bridge, but most of us don’t regularly visit the Amgen campus, and it is in a pretty non-descript industrial area. However, it is easy to get to, located at the intersection of Elliot Ave W and W Prospect Street. Don’t forget your camera!
