UW Recreation is poised to embark on a $13 million ($10M construction + $3M endowment) capital campaign to restore the historic ASUW Shell House on the Montlake Cut. A building with many layers of Northwest history – tribal, military, aviation, sport, and recreation. Now, poised to be the catalyst that will bring our campus back to the water, and bring long overdue attention to our entire waterfront.
