Transforming a Neighborhood through Street Design: Yesler Terrace

The Seattle Housing Authority is redeveloping a 1940s-era public housing complex near downtown into a dynamic, mixed-use community that honors the area’s history while expanding opportunities for housing, parks and transportation.

NACTO Street Design Guide principles were followed for all new and rebuilt streets, along with innovative features including a mobile art studio, an urban farm, an accessible pedestrian hillclimb, and creative wayfinding during construction.

On this tour, we’ll see how the First Hill Streetcar, pedestrian improvements, and protected bike lanes provide multi-modal access, contribute to a sense of place, and generate relationships with surrounding neighborhoods.
