Vision for the Capitol Hill light rail station properties – what will go up when the red wall comes down?
Light rail service to Capitol Hill and other neighborhoods is planned to begin in the Fall of 2016 – more than five years away. But discussions are well underway for what will happen above ground on the properties currently under construction for the stations and light rail tunnel.
On May 21, 2010, from 10:00 am-1:00 pm, the City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development will host a community Open House on the Draft Urban Design Framework for the properties acquired for light rail and station construction on Capitol Hill. The Urban Design Framework describes a community vision of what could be built when the red wall comes down – what will be there, how will it look and function, how will it build on community assets such as Cal Anderson Park and how it will relate to the broader community.
Key elements of the vision for the redevelopment include:
- Sustainable and collaborative design and development;
- Design and development of a civic quality that results in a dynamic place people where want to be,
- Creation of a place that houses people and activities reflective of the diversity and vibrancy of Capitol Hill.
The Urban Design Framework is available on the DPD website:
