UDF: Waterfront Seattle - A Post-Viaduct, Public Space Megaproject Tour

This is arguably the largest urban realm project in this city’s history, encompassing the entire downtown interface with the water from Pioneer Square in the south to Belltown in the north. Seattle is finally re-establishing its lost connection with its waterfront. Long disconnected from Elliott Bay, the city is re-stitching the urban fabric that the Alaskan Way Viaduct tore apart in 1953.

Join us and key representatives from design firms, the public-sector, and project leaders, directly involved in this process, on this unmissable tour. A never to be repeated ‘blank canvas’ look at a post-viaduct, pre-built-out waterfront; an insider sneak-peak at the vision for the future.

Meetup location:
Friends of the Waterfront, before departing along Alaskan way from Pioneer Square to Pike Place.

Tour Leaders:
Marshall Foster, Waterfront Design Manager
Steve Pearce, City of Seattle
