The draft Urban Design Framework for the light rail station sites on Capitol Hill describes a vision for the development of those properties once the light rail construction is complete. Key elements of the vision include:
- A dynamic heart for the Capitol Hill Community- mixing vibrant retail, community services, active public places and residences with the new Sound Transit light rail station.
- A model for transit-oriented communities; new development that integrates good urban design and placemaking with the opportunity to provide affordable housing and community services that support the diversity of the neighborhood.
- An opportunity to grow the Broadway Corridor, connecting it to Cal Anderson Park and reaching south to Seattle Central Community College and the Pike Pine corridor.
