Shoreline Third Avenue Woonerf

In anticipation of a new light rail station arriving in their community, the City of Shoreline identified an opportunity create a multi-function community gateway transitioning from the neighborhood into the station area from the north.  

Preliminary design weaves a multi-use trail, a new roadway and a future pedestrian bridge touchdown together into new, enlivened civic space that connects the community to the future Shoreline South/145th light rail station in new ways. A fully accessible central plaza allows space for gathering, informal play and performance.  Stormwater management is deployed as a dynamic site element, celebrating the movement of water while segregating different modes of transportation.
