DPD and the Uptown Alliance are cohosting an Uptown community open house to kick off a year-long planning effort that will result in an Urban Design Framework (UDF) for the Uptown Urban Center.
Thursday, November 7, 2013
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Seattle Center Pavilion
305 Thomas St.
The Uptown UDF will be a collaborative vision that describes how the physical development of the Uptown Urban Center can positively affect quality of life. The UDF will recognize the role of place-making and urban design in creating a walkable, livable, healthy, and vibrant neighborhood. At the open house, attendees will identify issues and opportunities to consider as the neighborhood grows.
The UDF will help connect Uptown to other neighborhood areas by taking advantage of new infrastructure investments including the State Highway 99 tunnel exit and two-way traffic on Mercer, known as Mercer West. These changes could bring new commercial and residential development, and advance the neighborhood’s goals to create a vibrant urban neighborhood that is more walkable with healthy business and residential communities.
