Removing the Alaskan Way Viaduct opened miles of opportunity for Seattle’s waterfront—and years of new projects to rebuild this area with world-class public spaces. Join leaders from the Office of the Waterfront for a walking tour showcasing the challenges and opportunities that they face. We’ll begin down Pike Street, where efforts are underway to improve multimodal connections between downtown neighborhoods and the water. Enjoy the views at Victor Steinbrueck Park, where we’ll discuss design efforts to capitalize on view opportunities, efforts with project partners to connect the historic Pike Place Market with the nearby water, and the new surface streets that have replaced the old Alaskan Way Viaduct. Then, we’ll walk to Waterfront Park to discuss planned park improvements, and visit the Waterfront Space project showroom.
