July Lunch – Waterfront Seattle: History, Design, and Funding
July 24 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$40
The Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects (OWCP) was created in 2014 to manage the planning, design, and construction of Seattle’s most transformative civic project since the Seattle Center – the reclamation of Seattle’s Central Waterfront. Once the deep-bore tunnel is open and the viaduct demolished, OWCP will rebuild 26 blocks to include a surface road, promenade, two rebuilt pier parks, a pedestrian bridge called the Overlook Walk, and numerous pedestrian enhancements to several east-west streets. Join Marshall Foster, Director of OWCP and Joshua Curtis, Partnerships Manager at OWCP, to talk about the history of the project, review the design, and discuss the proposed Local Improvement District, a $200 million property tax assessment that would complete the $700 million budget for the waterfront improvements.
