Rooftop Dragon

Perfectly situated above the small but fun downtown corridor of Renton, just a short 20 minutes south of Seattle.

[Natalie Hammers, 04/20/2019]

The dragon was unveiled in April 2019. It's made of aluminum and glows in two colors. The idea came from the building itself, which was cracked and saggy from old earthquakes and looked as if something heavy had landed on its roof. So, a dragon.
