University District EIS & Urban Design Study

University District

The University District is in a period of rapid change. With the opening of two new light rail stations – University of Washington in 2016 and the future Brooklyn Station in 2021 – the area is poised for thoughtful redevelopment.

As a part of the City of Seattle initiative to study the impact of proposed zoning changes in the University District, HEWITT analysed and illustrated the impacts of three development alternatives and potential zoning changes to create a visual guideline for the City to move forward with a Strategic Plan and Urban Design Framework.
