Over the past several years, Capitol Hill community members have worked with Sound Transit and the City of Seattle to develop a vision for the Sound Transit-owned properties in the immediate vicinity of the future light rail station on Capitol Hill. That vision will be expressed in an Urban Design Framework.
On May 9, DPD will post a public draft of the Urban Design Framework on the project website, www.seattle.gov/dpd/Planning/CapHillStationArea/
Overview/default.asp, for your review and comment. An open house on the draft Urban Design Framework will be held on Saturday, May 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Seattle Central Community College Atrium. Staff and community members will be on hand to describe the recommendations and to gather comments and feedback.
The Urban Design Framework is intended to provide:
- An overall vision for how development on the Sound Transit-owned properties in the immediate vicinity of the Capitol Hill light rail station can enhance the neighborhood.
- Specific direction for future redevelopment of these properties, including building uses and forms, affordable housing and community services, and pedestrian connections and public spaces.
