Great cities have great public spaces, such as Millennium Park in Chicago, and Seattle is no different. The redeveloped Waterfront will be Seattle’s new ‘front porch’ – a place where there is something for everyone: from parks and public spaces, to streets that balance all uses, opportunities to enjoy the water’s edge, places for walking and biking, public art and more.
Signifying the start of the project’s design process, James Corner will serve as keynote speaker for the event, providing a 30-minute presentation at 7 p.m. that outlines what he sees as the project’s big opportunities and challenges in this stage of the design process. Following will be opportunities for the public to provide comment and, ideas, and interact with the City and Project teams.
Help shape Seattle’s future waterfront by visiting www.waterfrontseattle.org and taking a quick eight-question survey from the design team, which will help them create Seattle’s new waterfront. Be sure to RSVP for the event after completing the survey.
