Where the Shoreline Street End Ends: Coffee and Planning

6th Ave W street end in Queen Anne.

Learn about the 6th Ave W shoreline street end project in Queen Anne over coffee at Tully’s (101 Nickerson St) this Thursday, March 3, 4 – 6 PM.

Did you know Seattle has 149 streets that end on waterfronts? These are what we call shoreline street ends. And they’re the places where residents and visitors young and old can reach out and touch the water, explore a beach, launch a kayak, and enjoy the view.

About two-thirds of our street ends need some love. They’re either overgrown, unmarked, or have private encroachments. So, we’ve been working with residents and community groups to improve these spaces.

Right now, we’re planning improvements for the 6th Ave W street end in Queen Anne. If you live nearby or are a fan of shoreline street ends, join us for coffee at Tully’s (101 Nickerson St) this Thursday, March 3, 4 – 6 PM to learn more about the project and share your ideas.

We’re planning to make improvements to 6th Ave W this fall , including:

  • Creating beach access for hand-carry boats to access ship canals
  • Installing a rain garden to improve site drainage
  • Installing art pieces that serve as seating and bollards designed by a local artist
