The City’s primary objective for this development is the construction of 100 or more commuter parking spaces to help alleviate pressure on the current Sound Transit-owned Park & Ride garage, that fills by 7:00am on most weekdays. Additional community benefits the City is seeking include:
- Public Open Spaces – An attractive and functional open space and pedestrian/bicycle connection between the project site, Town Center, and the Sound Transit light rail station.
- Well-Designed Integration – A project that integrates and enhances the Greta Hackett Outdoor Sculpture Gallery in the design.
- Arts & Cultural Events and Spaces – Inclusion of arts performances, education and collaboration venues.
- Housing Diversity – The community has a strong interest in adding workforce housing as well as additional condos to the Town Center area.
