City Inside/Out: Envisioning Seattle`s Waterfront
City Inside/Out: Envisioning Seattle`s Waterfront
For the past year, the city has hosted community forums to explore the future of the waterfront after the Alaskan Way Viaduct comes down. What priorities have emerged? Which ideas are getting the most buzz? What would a dynamic public space along Elliott Bay look like? The viaduct is scheduled to come down in 2016, after the waterfront tunnel is completed, which will provide a unique opportunity to re-think Seattle`s waterfront. In the next few months, a concept design will be delivered to city leaders. How will they balance the myriad competing needs? What do citizens want? What are waterfront businesses most concerned about? We pay a visit to a longtime waterfront institution, Ye Olde Curiosity Shop on Pier 54, and hear from fourth-generation owner Andy James. We also get perspective from Marshall Foster, City of Seattle Planning Director; Maggie Walker, co-chair of the Waterfront Committee; and Cary Moon, director of the People`s Waterfront Coalition. How different will the waterfront look in five years?
